2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Malloys, Watford on 11 September 2013. Poured a clear amber colour with a medium, dense white head. Attractive looking pint, well kept. Malt forward aroma with hints of apple and floral hop. Malt flavours follow with some cooked fruit sweetness and brown sugar. Palate is a bit like stewed fruit, hop resin and toffee.

Hand-pulled pint at The Falcon Inn, Woore, Shropshire on 28 Sep 2013.
Amber/brown and fruity: full head that stayed.
The beer had a soft, orchard aroma and taste, sweeter more than bitter with hints of apples and pears within the mixed bag of flavours. Pleasant enough, but without testing your taste buds or nasal organs too greatly.
OK and in good condition.

Citrussy aroma, malty taste but a little bit on the watery side. A little bit underwhelming

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Insipid mid brown. Light aroma of and red grapes. Taste is bittersweet and unbalanced. Not unpleasant, but the astringent finish is jarring. Not quite sure what Wychwood are trying to do here. A passable but unremarkable basic bitter.

Cask@tap and tanner, walsall. Brown amber beer with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of malts. Taste is caramel, malts and some fruit. A little light on the palate. Ok beer.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Cask at the Lamplighter, Jersey with Harrington. Dark brownish copper coloured ale. Fairly typical Wychwood house style, lighter and softer than some but mostly a fruity malt character. Smooth drinking and nice enough. Oh and the pump clip is indeed awesome, score an extra point for looks!

On cask at Varsity Bar, Lincoln UK - a ruby coloured ale, white head soon went, bit funky in the taste. Average.

Cask at the Redbridge, Andover. The pumpclip is great, definitely not politically correct, and definitely worth an extra mark on the overall score! It’s reddish amber in appearance with a loose cream head; the aroma is fruity, but indistinct; in the mouth it’s full od slightly sour red fruit, with a underlyign caramel maltiness; to finish there’s a dry metallic bitterness that’s light but lasting. A nice autumnal pint.

Cask conditioned at The Duke’s Cut, Oxford. Chestnut with slight head. Quite a mildish, fruity beer, in fact I would say it could be a Mild. Fruity, berries, some earthiness, could be fuller, but ok.
