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."

50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Copper amber with a large creamy white head. Aroma is biscuity malt and floral hops. Flavor is toasty malt, caramel with a strong lasting bitter finish. Grainy mouthfeel. Very nice beer.

This is not an offensive beer. It has a reasonably decent flavour. Slight hoppiness, some mild citrus, and an almost wheaty taste and smell? Overall a drinkable beer with rather weak flavour profile. Easy drinking but not one I would seek out again

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Pours a cloudy amber/orange color with golden orange hues when held to a light source and a .5 finger fizzy yellowish head that quickly fades into a lasting ring. Not much lacing. Earthy hop aroma with some caramel and biscuit malt balance. Bland and pretty weak smelling. Delicately hopped up front with a nice biscuit malt balance followed again by a stronger hop presence and a dry slightly bitter. Very slightly tartness with some slight crisp fruit. Okay session beer but nothing worth seeking out again.

sound67 (223) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2009
50cl, typically colourful Wychwood bottle. Cloudy(!) amber colour, minimal off-white head, but with some lacing. Aroma of sweet orchard fruit and caramel. Taste is medium sweet malt, with a healthy, strong citric hop note on top. Sour/sweet and bitter finish and aftertaste. This brew does NOT AT ALL (see post below) taste like a "porter", rather, it’s a hoppy pale ale in disguise. For those who like that style (even if the colour here is a little darker than some), "Fiddler’s Elbow" is a warmly recommended brew with a refreshing, intriguing taste. Along with the same company’s "Circlemaster" and "Wychcraft", "Fiddler’s Elbow" is a hop-happy winner!

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Nice embossed bottle - really like their flying witch logo - and label is good as well. This poured a clear, medium amber in colour and was adequately carbonated. The head was off white and almost not a head at all; what there was ran away and hid immediately. Oh well. The aroma was of light malting. Taste was of malt and perhaps some underlying coffee; both taste and mouthfeel reminded me of a porter. A refreshing beer, I did quite like it.

Bullit (3961) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle from local off-license. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus hops. Flavour has sweet malts, toffee, citrus.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Clouded amber pour with a white head. Nice malt aroma, a little sweetness there also. Flavor is a little fruity, some nice malt. Bitterness is good.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Clear golden body, small head. Flavor is somewhat artificial tasting caramel malt, followed by a nice bitterness that lasts into the finish. Overall not too bad.

Davebravey (8) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2009 does not count
medium sweetness, spruce, woody. Nice drinkable beer, malty flavours coming through with light hoppy aftertaste.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2009
Orange golden colour with big head and fast bubbles. Smell is citrus hops with some earth and an overall pleasant freshness. Hoppy fresh taste but a little watery. Sweet citrus with a little bitter. Bit dull and particularly watery. Best thing about this was the appearance.
