2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Muddy orange-amber beer with a good, dense, yellow coloured head, leaving some lace. Very meaty estersí nose, dried raw ham, dried (sorry, really!) dog poop. A bit grassy too, thankfully. Soft-sweet, cookie malt taste. Just a bit nondescript fruity, ending a bit lacty. Malts dominate throughout, never shaking off the esters. Very slick, medium bodied. Aftertaste becomes more fruity. Well thžs lagerboy is not exactly over the moon with all this taste. It might be better on cask, no doubt, but what Iím getting is pretty close to off-taste!

(bottle) hazy orange. Aroma of vegetables and yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet malt, a bit of citrus in the finish.

A better offering from wychwood, but not saying much. Aroma is wychwood yeast, smokey burnt character with grassy hop trying to burrow through. Taste is similar the burntness dominated and distroying everything in the ber thats good, as the hop character is not bad.

Fruity aroma of honey yet bitter. Lovely copper appearance with a good white head. Fruity but musky taste. Lacking flavour.

bubble gum from the moment itís opened. baseball card and topps variety. looks good, but looks are deceiving. long sweet and fairly cheap lingering malase of a thin and gummy tasting malt and barely discernable hop mirage. good mouthfeel and nice head on the beer. but the carbonation is unnoticeable and the flavor doesínt go away, although it needs to.

Golden with a nice head. The aroma has notes of fruit and hops. The flavour has a lot of fruit notes, citrus is the most dominant. It has a nice bitterness in the finish, that also is citrussy, almost a bit harsh. When it gets a bit warmer itís less harsh, and thatís how I prefer this beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Coppery orange pour with a vanishing slick of off-white suds. Unappetisingly metallic vegetable snout in the manner of Peeterman Artois. Watery cardboard hoppiness. Some slightly pleasant biscuity notes from the wheat. Sticks around with a nastily bitter sweetener-like aftertaste. The worst Wychwood beer Iíve tried.

This is very good ale,pours amber cloudy.The head small and tan colored,a very average tasting ale with a bite and nose like a grapefruit.This would be a good start if youíve never had an ale.Mild hops presence with notes of carmel malts, that are balanced very well together,I could drink 2 pints easy and be very satisfied,I would buy this one again.I would rather have the real european with a stronger ABV #.
