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."

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 This ale is good and solid, well-balanced, and very tasty. It’s red-gold with a small off-white head that dissipates to leave a foamy ring. The aroma is hard to pinpoint, being basically "beer," but has some mild fruitiness like grape juice. The taste is similarly hard to pinpoint: a definite, crisp flavour with very good blend and balance of sweet and bitter, but with some general toasty, lightly caramelly qualities, and earthy-piney-citrus elements. It is very smooth, refreshing, and easily drinkable, yet has solid, complex taste.

Light honey aroma. Milky brown colour with ok head. Nice honey flavor with good aftertaste. Light and summery body with low to medium carbonation.

500ml brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Amber-red translucent body with a half inch of off-white head. Smells of biscuit and caramel malts along with spicy herbal hops (I’m guessing Fuggles). Caramel and biscuit malts, slightly nutty with hints of diacetyl with a good English hop presence. Low on the carbonation (though not feeling flat) with a medium, somewhat aqueous body. The subtle and moderate flavor with the mouthfeel makes this a heck of an easy drinker. A pretty decent English beer.

aAber colour with a good head, hoppy aroma, a strong citrus taste followed by hops and very nice to drink, defiantly worth buying again.

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 you’ve 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 #.

Bronze color with a moderate sized head that dwindles down to a ring of foam. Leaves thick lovely lacing. Nose of bread and biscuits with floral notes as well. Malty taste with a hint of fruity sweetness which segues into a dry semi-sweet finish with just a snap of hops. This is a good one.

Nut brown colour. Rich aroma of light dried fruits which is a strong element of the flavour too. Light roasted malt and a little hop comes through. A really full flavoured beer that is easy to drink.

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.
