Brains - SA 4.2%
Taste: Ubiquitous in South Wales. This ale, according to the brewery website, is called Skull Attack by some. This makes the ale sound way more threatening / exciting than it is. It has an initial taste that is hoppy burn with an added slight walnut twang and then the taste fades to watery blandness. It disappears easy but doesn't linger in the memory at all.
Appearance: light conker.
Would you buy 2? Sometimes you have to, in certain pubs.
Would you buy 4? With other options, there's no reason why.
Rating (out of 7): 3 * * * A safety net ale - it's often there when a pub is lacking in ale, but it's very uninspiring.
