Pasteurised bottle from Sainsbury’s. Nice golden colour, fizzy head dissipates quickly. More subdued typical whchwood aroma than others, with tangy citrus hop character more dominant. Light mouthfeel and good hop finish. One of their better efforts.

Plenty of flavour and that clean taste you asociate with a good organic beer.New Zealand
hops give it depth and an all round sharpness making for a pleasant drink.

Standard wychwood nose with golden hue and a white foamy head. Highly hopped taste that is long lasting and bitter. Better than most Wychwood beers where the sterile taste and blandness rules.

Wychwood is a wonderful brewery - starting off in 1983 as a microbrewery, it now produces a wide and complex range of draught and bottled beers which are increasingly available in most supermarkets. This recent organic ale has the typical Wychwood depth of strength and flavour. The hops are very evident - deliciously dry with a flowery burst: hints of rose petals and geraniums. These hops come from New Zealand (hence the Kiwi name). But there is a satisying malt sweetness coming through all the time - marmalade and brown sugar. A very robust and delicious beer.

Amber coloured moderate head and condition. Buttery golding hop type nose, malty body with balance of hop flavour and a bitterness that dominates the finish. Quite tasty for an organic beer but still quite bland for the strength.

Amber beer with a fruity, hoppy taste mixed with bitterness and coffee. A Wychwood brewed beer I actual liked.
