4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
aAber colour with a good head, hoppy aroma, a strong citrus taste followed by hops and very nice to drink, defiantly worth buying again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
