Double Dragon Welsh Ale

Meterman: I find myself saying this too often; What the hell are you doing Flavius?
Flavius: I have seen the prophet and I am building a shrine to honour him.
M: This shrine is just a beer bottle in a cut out six-pack box.
F: You do not understand the way of the CapFlu
M: So why is this person the prophet of beer?
F: He has sampled the nectar for over 3300 beers and recorded his tales in register of the Sacred Ale.
M:WOW. 3300 beer reviews on is impressive. Hopefully this person is not from Waco.
F: Nope, lives here in Victoria, so I may have come into contact with greatness.
M: I am certain you have, as certain as I am standing here.
F: I don't get it.
M:Didn't think you would, review the beer you idiot.

Double Dragon from Felinfoel Brewery in Wales, claims to be the 'National Ale of Wales". I have been to Wales and never seen this beer; hopefully it is better than our 'National Ale'.

Taste +3

There is a nice mild nose of hops and malt. The brew tastes just like it smells and reveals a full mouthful and only a slight bitterness. There is a bit more carbonation that expected.

Aftertaste +1

The taste fades quickly, leaving a slight sharp hoppiness on the roof of the mouth.

Alcohol -1 4.2%

Oh well, you can't win them all

Value 0

This was one of the beers brought back from Bottleworks in Seattle. So sadly, I doubt I will be seeing this one again.

Packaging +1

Very cool double dragon artwork on the label, very nice.

M: Ok Flavius this is really reaching low, review on the bottle appearance. Next there will be a category for how it feels when you 'accidently' sit on it.

Overall 4/10

Despite the low score, it is a great beer. I wish I could easily get more.
