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...

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle, LCBO gift pack 2012. Dark orange pour, creamy white head. Pleasant earthy hops in decent aroma. tase - classic English bitter taste - fruity hops over medium malt base, sort of metallic hops in finish. Pleasant brew that likely would be much better served fresh than in pasteurized bottles across the pond.

Towey1989 (1894) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of toffee, bready malts, fruit and slight spicy hops. Taste of light caramel, bready malts, some fruit, slight grass and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, spicy, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Surprisingly hoppy but quite bland and watery. A dry, somewhat refreshing bitter overall. It’s ok.

UXO (1524) - CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: nutty, caramel malt, grassy, light fruit. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter, light metallic. (5/10) Medium body tending slightly watery, moderate-low carbonation, sweetish short duration mildly bitter finish. (2/5) Another less-than-impressive Wychwood offering. A bit sweet and a bit watery, with a finish that isn’t so much bitter as astringent, especially as the initial sweetness fades. An unexciting interpretation of an unexciting style. (10/20)

bonev (322) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemny bursztyn z obfita biala grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie karmel, troche ziolowo i prazone slody. W smaku goryczka na niskim poziomie a wysycenie na srednim. Wodniste bez ciala, nuty ziemiste z lekkimi rodzynkami i cytrusami gdzies w tle. Raczej nie warto powtarzac.

TomBitter (13) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Pours copper, aroma malty and toffee, a good smell sensing a full strong flavour but the taste didn’t match, not a bad bitter taste but fairly generic and almost watery. Certainly not a stand out in the Wychwood lot, don’t go out your way to try it.

Pack de 6 différentes wychwood pour 8L (10€). Intéressante, manque d’un peu de caractère.

mabuzzer (585) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2016

nephirem (270) - CROATIA - JUL 6, 2016
Pours hazy copper color with medium white head. Nose is yeast and caramel malts. A bit grassy. Thin body with high carbonation and watery texture. Subtly bitter with some sweetness coming from caramel malts. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel, herbs. Some metallic off-notes and some sourness in the aftertaste. Finish is a bit dry. Overall, not bad but too watery. Could be better.

Some caramel, salty, bitter. Quite nice maltiness. Decent brew, did not like the watery taste, aftertaste is decent though
