2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Drink-by date 5/31/2012. Butterscotchy aroma, caramel, and a bit wine-like. Coppery, cloudy, very thin head. Flavors: light butterscotch, some bitterness in mid palate, and all diminishes so quickly. Thin body. Well made, yes, but rather unexciting. I donít think Iíll buy any more of this for some time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear coppery mahogany colour with reasonable white head. Aroma is mainly hops; seaweed or hay with hints of caramel / malt. Light body with medium, somewhat fuzzy rather than smooth, carbonation. Flavour starts with restrained malt balanced by a bit of tanginess and some astringency from hops. The hop flavours build to a reasonable bitter finish, but the bitterness is somewhat harsh and metallic. Overal a easy drinking but fairly tasty beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
660cl Brown bottle best before 20 Jan 08, drank with AWolfAtTheDoor on 03 Jan 08.
Poured into a pint sleeve glass, it was a good amber colour and clear with a small white head.
The aroma was of hops and caramel, the beer was fairly cold though and as it warmed liquorice smell came, which is unusual for an English Pale Ale (well it is for me).
The aftertaste is where this beer let itself down, dry and metalic. It almost ruined the whole experience.
This is anothe 50-50 beer from Wychwood. I am not going to rush out and buy a crate of this, but if someone offered me a pint in a pub, Iíd except it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear foxy-amber, well-carbonated to light cream-coloured head. Caramel, biscuit, creamtoffee and some fruity yeastnotes. Dry caramel, finish a tad grassy, with again some fruity notes. Light body, but quite slick & sticky, despite the not too lazy carbonation. For a brewery that highly claims having so much taste, this is bl**din dull!
