Toomio (330) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Ihan erilainen kuin bitteristä luulisi. Varmasti mahtava Janojuoma. Jotenkin sellainen viikinkiolut.

Jamedra (665) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 31, 2013
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je příjemné, kvasnicové, sladké s lehkým ovocným nádechem. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná nízká a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je opálová, a kalná. Chuť je velmi výrazná, připomíná sladké oříšky s lehkým ovocným nádechem, průběh je kvasnicový a finiš je jemně hořký a nedržící. Vcelku se jedná o velmi chutné pivo, vysoká pitelnosti, ideální na zahnání žízně.

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle BB Oct 2014. Orange, sparkling, small foamy white head, white lacing. Smell - malty, bread, slight rubber. Body - medium, not really foamy, carbonation is low. Taste - malty, bitter-sweet toffee, hint of under-ripe fruit, a little drying in the finish. Not bad overall.

ILduce (221) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle LCBO mixpack: Amber with big beige head that disappears quickly. Various hop content present in the nose with some bready malts. Taste is musty and mainly malty with biscuits and other grains. Hops hidden. Lacking in body and any real appeal. Prototypical Wychwood brew, unfortunately.
