Not for Butty Man: Wye Valley – Butty Bach (Bottle)


I reviewed the tap version of this some while ago and I remember liking it quite a lot (

Well, the bottle version is very much like the draught version, here are my rough and ready notes – which are surprisingly similar to my notes for the other…which means my sense of taste is still good!

Amber Colour with a thinnish but disappearing head.  The nose was sweet cereals and grain.  Not a hugely distinctive aroma, but pleasant enough.

In the taste I got a lovely full sweet malt flavour, with a good solid mouth feel and for a bottled beer, quite a restrained carbonation.

Not vastly bitter, but does have enough bitterness to give a pleasing finish.  A light malty aftertaste means you’ll always fancy another sip.

Butty Bach is a good restorative beer – get yourself a bottle if you need some refreshment after some heavy manual labour…
