Best beers from Wales via Ratebeer

Now I'm not a regular user of Ratebeer but I do find their lists interesting, if just for the amount of anomalies it throws up - for instance Murphy's Irish Stout is regarded as Welsh beer as its brewed by Inbev at their Magor Factory and at number 2 is Thames Welsh ESB, a beer that most people in Wales will have not seen or heard of as it is made by Felinfoel Brewery for export only. A lot of ciders on this list as well, here is the link for the full list.
Also on Ratebeer is a list of the 50 worst beers - made up mainly of Malt Liquors and Pale Lagers - although the spiced 'beer' made up of American Bud and Clamato (that's tomato juice and clam soup!) called Chelada does sound like the most disgusting combination possible, that is until you realise a Light version is also available.
