Pasteurised Bottle. A cask version did appear in 2001 @ 3.7% Goliath: The Beer to slay a mighty thirst. A full bodied & robust ruby bitter brewed with Pale & Crystal Malts, with a rich malty taste & a hefy wack of Fuggles & Goldings hops, just the beer to slay that thirst...

Brown/Amber Coloring. No Head. Some Sudsy Smell and Taste...Like Wet Cardboard..but then the Bottle is Clear..so That Shouldn’t be Surprising... Will Try Again in England and See if it’s Any Better.

Pours nut brown with a foamy off-white head. Malt and caramel aromas with a hop nose. Sweet malt flavor with a bitter end. Fizzy and medium-bodied palate.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 Pours a copper color with a very thin off-white head. The aroma is a secent balance of malts and tangy hops. Has a medium body and the flavor doesn’t come through very strong. Not bad, but not very exciting.

a alightly hazy orange/deep golden color, head is initially white, thin, and not lasting! aroma is lightly hopped, with subtle malt. flavor is essentially the same, hops come off as metallic with slight bitterness and tea-like notes in the finish. overall, quite thin and not really that pleasing.

Dirty pale amber; fluffy lasting head. Really lame taste. Thin. Nothing to hold it up. Plus, stupid label.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2004
An orange/copper colr with an almost tan head. Very zesty hop and sweet, toasty malt aroma. Apple-like esters remind me more of a brown ale than a bitter. Flavor shows a very fruity malt character that displays a silky softness. The malt flavor has a husky character that offends me. It overdries the beer and confuses the malt character. A healthy dollop of bitter hops runs throughout the flavor profile.

A delicious English beer. I took a whiff of this stuff and almost immediately wrote it off as overhopped English garbage, but the overhoppiness is all in the smell and never appears in your mouth. Surprisingly good, with a deep reddish caramel color and the coolness of being served in a big old bottle that contains an English pint. Enjoyable and impressive, I recommend you give it a shot if you’re able to get it.

Bottle from Tesco. Poured a nice orangey brown colour, with a nice foamy off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour is sweet caramel and light malt. Medium bodied and mouthfeel. Pleasant, slightly yeasty aftertaste. Good bitter.

Bottle 660 ml. A typical Wychwood amber coloured ale with strange sweetish aroma and light fruity palate. Drinkable but nothing special.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Sweet malt aroma with a hint of cherry. Nice dark red/amber color. Bittersweet taste with light malt flavor but smooths out a beer warms up. Nice big bottle for sharing. Not as distinctive as other Wychwood beers.
