One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Wye Valley Butty Bach


A lovely deep golden ale that smells of malt, hops and a slight hint of fruity sweetness.  It has some live sediment in the bottom so it was poured slowly and carefully, resulting in the inevitable little head.  It does leave a little bit of lacing on the glass but it has enough body to get away with the small head.

What an unusual taste this has, definitely in a good way.  It has a really unique blend of bitterness and sweetness that certainly awakened my taste buds and made them sit up and take note.  It has such a refreshing, smooth taste with a creamy biscuit aftertaste.  It is very pleasant and easy to drink, leaving a silky sweetness on the tongue.

Butty Bach means 'little friend' in Welsh and Ale be Seeing this little friend again.

My rating:

Brewed by Wye Valley Brewery, Stoke Lacy, Herefordshire
4.5% ABV
