BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, - JUN 6, 2006
500ml clear bottle 4.5% ABV. Poured a clear lightly carbonated red chestnut with white gold frothy quickly diminishing head. Disappointing cereal aroma. Well balanced malt/ hopflavour with biscuit overtones & good bitterness. Well rounded mouthfeel with long bitter finish.

johndoughty (4996) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2007
Bottle. Bronze with no carbonation.Initial impression is of bitterness that lingers well after drinking.Reasonable although the rather tatty label doesn’t impress.

RichardGretton (4652) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a strongish head. The aroma is toffee and hopped, and the flavour is quite weak but well hopped with a dry toffee finish. Overall an average beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2006
Amber with a good head. Malty aroma. The taste has citric sourness, a little sweetness, and plenty of malt. The fizz spoils it for me, but no doubt it will go down a treat with its intended constituency.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2006
Bottled. Gingered amber body, with soft nutty looking head. Sharp, lifting, bitterness rises from the bottle. Nutty, bisquity bitterness, strong and unmistakably Wychwood.

Fin (9667) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle, picked up in Morrisons Tewksbury (about a week or two back) Amber coloured beer, with malty nose, bit citrusy in the flavour department but otherwise a bit ordinary.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (from sainsburys, BBE Mar 07). A little citric hop, suprisingly strong caramel biscuity malts. A bit sweet in the mouth with the hops fading.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle. Amber coloured with a slim off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and nuts. Some citrus in the taste along with a nutty malty flavour. Dry and lightly bitter. Nothing exceptional, but a drinkable bitter, that was better than I was expecting.

leaparsons (9939) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber with a small head. Aromas are light caramel malts with some nuttiness. Some citrus notes with butter. Flavours are sweet malts with corn, butter and a light roast character. Sweet and acidic lemon comes through with a non-bitter, quite flat finish. Very average.
