Rhymney Gift Horse

The seasonal offering from Rhymney Brewery is the 4.5% Gift Horse. Not a Christmassy strength, something other blogs have picked up, but good to see a local brewery at least making the effort. Great pumpclip, with the old Rhymney Brewery hobbyhorse having a seasonal makeover. The present Rhymney Brewery have bought the original hobby horse trademark so are able to use it as they see fit. Anyway back to the beer, Gift Horse is a mid-brown beer with a subtle but distinct hop/fruit aroma. Plenty of malt on the tongue with an astringent finish. Not quite hoppy enough for Brew Wales but drinkable. Beer was drunk in the Pen & Wig, Newport.
