3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle poured a crystal clear mahogany beverage with a medium sized off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was predominantly toasted malt with a hint of noble hops in the background along with a sweet hint of bubble gum. This one had a medium body with lively carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor started off slightly sweet showing off the malt character and then the average length finish was lightly bitter as you would expect from a "bitter".

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Dark brown with light shining through making for a reddish glow. Slightly skunky aroma, but diminishes allowing for some yeasty notes. Yeast visible in suspension. Flavours of coffee, sweet roast malt, chocolate and a caramellic finish. Sweet, with just enough bitterness to balance.
2007:Charcoal, tobacco, notes. This bottle from a special xmas pack, with a shirt and sealed into a metal container. No skunk this time.

Not much taste or smell. carmel, sweet, malty. Not what I was expecting. not a bad beer by any means, but just nothing extraordanary. I would drink again though if the mood catches me right.

Enjoyed this one while tailgating with a few guys from work. Definitely a full-bodied but well balance brew, this one pours a nice orangish/red color. Not real bitter but strong in the malt department and a definite fruit flavor at the end. Enjoyable IMO, but there are better Wychwood’s out there."

Caramel and faint sweet malt aroma. Dark amber colour with good looking carbonation but poor foam. Chocolate flavour with descreete hops. Nice fresh mouthfeel with delicious carbonation. I like this one!

Pas mauvaise comme ESB, pas trop amère. Elle serait meilleure en fut ou dans une bouteille brune.

Notes from a tasting last year. Bottle, rudy brown pour with decent head. Toasty malt caramel aroma, and flavors. A little thin and lioght, both in flavor, and in mouthfeel.Not bad, but I won’t go chasing it.

Pours a deep red with a light creamy tan head. Malty aroma, fruity at the same time, light sniffs of hops. Flavor was good, fruity with a light hop bitterness. As the beer warmed slightly the lightly chocolate/coffee undertones were faintly detected. Very good. I’ll have it again.
