Wales Ales - Gruit Ale 7.9%

Image

Opens with a good hiss and pours a deep brown colour, with a ruby red hue. The head is a thick fluffy pale brown colour, that leaves good lacing and stays all the way down the glass.

On the nose, the first thing you pick up is ginger and thyme then a rosemary undertone. I can not pick up any malt, due to the amount of herbal aromas coming out the glass.

On to the taste, and at first I thought I was drinking mud.... Sorry but that's the first flavour that came to mind. Then comes this big hit of rosemary, that then develops into a gingery lemongrass flavour. The body is rather thin for an
8% ale, but you can taste the alcohol there, it has a warming feel and a dry finish.

It's not an ale for me sadly.
