Fin (7703) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle from Waitrose, Headington, Oxford, consumed at Carol & Haydns Summer party Saturday 30th June 2012 I drank this straight out of the bottle so I’m unsure of the exact colour of this. Malty & fruity with low hoppiness and a slightly metallic twang As expected really, very much the Wychwood stamp on this nothing special. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

sulawang (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
pours copper brown, minimal head, several active CO2 streams. Medium malts, transitions into a watery body, rough finish in mouth. Finishes medium bitter. Low complexity, low-medium depth, okay transitions, not so good carry, no good drinkability. I only taste malts, quite boring.

Digital_Aura (227) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2012
500ml bottle. Don't be frightened by the word, ORGANIC! This beer is GREAT! Pours a large, pillowy head - clear tawny brew (Lovibond 13/14). Distinctive scent of gum balls although it's very light. Head and lace persist through the duration of my drink. Tastes amazingly unique. Some of that gum ball sweetness, with a hoppy note for balance. Some mild hints of smoky, nutty flavours which make for an interesting beer. Totally in my favorites! Some long mildly bitter aftertaste though to trump a perfect review, and the carbonation is moderate to low.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a light tan coloured head. Aroma is fruity malt, faint caramel, floral notes. Taste is heavy on caramel, and sugar notes. Clean mineral notes, with the standard British hopping, and faint dried fruit, withmolasses in the very mineral finish. Light bodied. Easy drinking stuff.

Bouteille 500 ml. 5%. Merci à James et AMK. Couleur ambrée claire, mousse beige pâle. Arôme de malt caramel, herbes. En bouche, malt, un peu de caramel...arrière goût un peu bizarre. Notes d’alcool à 5% ?. Correct

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2012
In bottle from Waitrose. Pours an amber colour with a beige head that dies away fairly quickly. An aroma of treacle, honeycomb, grassy hops and alcohol. Similar flavours with harsh hops upfront and caramel and alcohol to finish. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle.

(bottle) Slightly unclear, amber colour with a firm medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Cara-malty and leafy aroma with herbal and fruity hops. Mildly bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Slightly buttery cara-malty base with citric and berry-fruity hops; dry and mildly bitter and fruity hoppy finish. 28.V.12
