BEER HUNTER; Arfur Daley.
Bang-on Brewery Mel, 4% ABV, 330ml bottle, available at Pop 'n' Hops, Whitchurch Road, and direct from the brewery on the Bridgend Industrial Estate.
BANG-ON Brewery started brewing in 2016 and for this beer they have have joined up with scientists from Cardiff University to produce this beer, made with honey from the university's own hives.
Mel is gold in colour and pours with a brilliant white head. The aroma is rather unusual as botanicals have also been used in this brew, giving a pleasant aroma of juniper and heather.
Clean, crisp flavour with some biscuity sweetness, the honey sweetness comes through towards the end.
Dry, somewhat astringent aftertaste, which in a beer is always good as it makes you want to drink some more!
