Untapped Brewery

Found these bottles at Caerphilly Medieval Fayre last week. All from the Untapped Brewery, the owners are from Cardiff but currently brew just across the border at Whittington's Brewery at the Three Choirs Vineyard in Gloucestershire. Only 3 beers produced at the moment and only available at Farmers Markets around South Wales at the moment, Roath, Riverside and Newport Farmers Markets. Competively priced at £2/bottle with discounts for bulk buying such as 6 for £10, these hand-crafted ales are far better to stock up on for the holidays than the mass-marketed stuff piled high in supermarkets. The beers: Eclipse, 4.4%. A well-balanced dark mild. Ember, 5.2%, a dark winter ale with lots of chocolate flavours. Sundown, 4%, a deep golden coloured ale with plenty of citrus aromas and a sharp, bitter flavour with a dry aftertaste. Now the Brew Wales editor is very partial to golden ales and the Sundown is, in his opinion, the best beer they make. Very moreish and drinkable!

Eclipse and Sundown are great beers, I even sent Sundown as one of my beer swap four. Will keep an eye out for Ember.
