COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle. Brown glass. <br /> Ingredients: Pale wheat and Crystal malt; Styrian and Northdown hops. "Fiddlers Elbow is Wychwood’s lighter style ale perfect for summer beer and evokes lazy, hazy days of summer images of golden meadows & ripe corn fields. This wheat brewed refreshing summer ale is 4.5% ABV. The addition of the choicest English wheat malt perfectly complements the use of Styrian Goldings hops. The end result is a wonderful combination of citrus and floral aroma, with tart citric fruit flavours and a long hoppy fruity finish. A wonderfully refreshing beer."

A few bottles at home. Straw yellow with a white head. Cereal aroma, garibaldi biscuit and straw flavour. Not bad, but the kind of beer that your acquaintance, who knows you like "real ale" buys when youíre going round, and acts all pleased with himself. A pox oníem!

Orange brown beer. A little malt. Subtle banana and a little sweetness in the dry finish. Okay.

jaghana (4139) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle 50cl. A clear amber beer with no head and no carbonation at all !! A basic bitter, medium malty, good hops presence specially at the finish, some grassy notes, not complex at all, bit watery.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Pous a hazy gold with a thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, fruit and yeast. A sweet flavor with the wheat showing through just a bit, mild bitternes. Bitter fruity finish. Very drinkable.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2010
The flavor has some wheat, some light carmel. As well some bready notes. There is even some fruit here. The aroma gives off some solid floral notes and some citrus. I think the best part of the beer. Pours a hazy amber with a nice white head and a little lacing. It has a lot of carbonation. It finishes with a real light bitterness but sort of dry as well. It sort of reminds of a cross of wine and champagne on the finish. This beer is a little different. That would be the best way to sum it up. But itís worth a shot. Itís no session beer.

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle from Sac Bevmo. Pours clear golden with a decent white head and a strong floral aroma. There is a standard English "real ale" flavor with more hop bitterness than usual. A decent session beer.

Certainly "complex" beer, much more than expected. Strong wheat and yeast notes, with some vanilla, caramel and leaves notes here and there. Taste came up a bit unexpected, with the floral/sprucy side leading (and surprinsing, due to hops being distant third as far as aroma is concerned). Still.... something was missing. Bitterness. I just expected something a little more bitter, and certainly something better considering the aroma on this one. Good one, mainly due to its complexity.
