Mainly available bottled. Has been seen in cask.

A deep Amber Ale that balances sweet malts with spicey, peppery rye and warm citrus notes with a long satisfying bitterness. The result is a complex and rewarding beer.

fruity grapefruit pith and red berries on nose. Unfined so super hazy dark amber with fluffy beige head. Fairly cold, sweet and sticky orange peel rye, Flinty note and dry pithy finish.

Scopey (5530) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Keg at Beer Emporium. It pours hazy amber with a small beige head. The nose is orange, tangerine, mango, marmalade, brown bread, hay and barnyard. The taste is crisp, bitter, mandarin, orange peel, sherbet, brown bread, spice, wood and leather with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Tasty.

leebotton (146) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Sweet, hoppy, slightly malty aroma, floral and slightly spicy orange / citrus. Deep golden with medium white head. Surprising sharp honey flavours give way to grapefruit and a cereal finish from the rye. Not as good as other W&T brews in my opinion but only due to the finish.

Plenty of spice and fruit in the nose - nutmeg and peaches and other stuff. A bit like some of that dried apricot with sugar that you get. When you taste a bit of balance comes in from the malt and plenty of bitterness from the hops. Some elderflower and lemonade in the finish. It’s a good un.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2013 Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Slightly hazy copper in appearance, with a slight, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Sweet bready malts, marmalade fruit and citrus hop aroma. Flavour offered more of the same, with an earthy edge and dry, slightly rasping finish with a hint of pine. Ok.
