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...

amber beer. smells of malt and some caramel. tasts malty and of some caramel, a bit like cookie, and has a sweetish hint of artificial fruit-bonbons(toffees). aftertaste is bittersweet. could be more tasty. not bad, but not special. with such a name, you expect more taste.

"A beer to slay a mighty thirst?" Meh. Standard boring bitter. This round of bottles was likely my last of WQhychwood unless they do something outside the box.

500ml bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small head. Light to medium body with low carbonation. Medium sweetness and low to medium bitterness. Caramel, malts, some brown sugar, yeast and raisin. A refreshing brew.

*Old rating. Best before 31 Jul 11. Smooth beer with lots of caramel and a smooth bitterness. Nice, easy to drink and still full flavoured. Malty Ale bitter aftertaste.

dark golden to amber colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of toffee, grassy and floral notes and some fruitiness;taste of malty sweetness, some sourness and artificial bitter notes - not that good...

Colore ambrato arancio con una cappello di schiuma medio, al naso risalta malto e lievito, il sapore è bilanciato fra dolce e amaro, con un corpo medio

mighty_meadow (303) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Not the best from Wychwood. Orangey brown colour. Looks like a cheap fizzy soft drink. Head is very poor then quickly fades to nothing. Taste is very malty with a slight hoppiness right at the end. Aftertaste of plant leaves. Not terrible but disappointing for the brewery.

Nice blend of light hop and malt aroma. Cloudy amber colour with ok head. Lightly malted and hopped, not too much flavour. Light to medium body with low carbonation.

stantheman (723) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
A 50 cl bottle from BC Liquor stores. An orange amber beer with medium pale yellow head. Faintly sweet on the nose. Faint hop note, medium bland malt. Sweet malted finish. Aperfectly bland and inoffensive pale ale. Style says "bitter", but not much bitter going on here. 2.8.

Botella de 50 cl tomada en el lúpulo en junio de 2011. lote 0272 hasta 30-09-2011. aromas y sabores ligeros de lúpulos y maltas con algo de especias. Cuerpo ligero con 4.2 vol. Se bebe sin problemas, sin grandes cosas que destacar.

Gary (1532) - Piss-ant Valley, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottled. Very malty caramelly, earthy hops, dried fruit notes like apricot and raisin. Unfortunately this beer suffers from. a Dusty yeast character that makes this pretty UN-chill
