Some months ago I tried Conwy’s Celebration Ale and came to the conclusion that it offered very little to celebrate.
This is much the same, and in fact I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this was the same brew with a spoonful of honey added.
Cwrw Mêl is all the things that can be wrong with “Real Ale”, it’s conservative, unadventurous.
It’s amber with a foamy head, little to no discernible aroma save for the vaguest whiff of caramel, malts that are slightly toffee sweet and the scantest trace of hoppy bitterness.
As for the honey, it’s nigh on impossible to find.
Put simply, this tastes like some beer, so polite as to almost be embarrassed of itself.
In a word, dull.
