3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml clear bottle. Gorgeous ruddy copper coloured beer topped by a fine-grained tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma, toffee, woody hops, some nice plummy fruitiness. Flavour is very well-balanced with sweet malt, stone fruits, and woody/spicy hops all mingling up front before the sweetness falls off leaving a soft spicy bitterness. A little bit minerally as well. Quite a nice bitter, actually.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On the basis of the excellence of this beer I’ve been searching for other beers Wychwwod makes, but they’re not readily available in the US. This beer had a beautiful dark color with a light beige head, a fruity nose without being acrid, and a smooth (not actually very bitter at all) nutty taste, with a slightly hoppy but smooth finish. Has flavors of coffee and caramel in with main taste. Highly recommended.

Looks like a glass of coke with a creamy layer of head, basically bland and malty, very thin in the palate, dry, not very bitter at all, not a whole lot goin on here, nice label though

The ale poured a thick opaque reddish brown with thin tan head. The aroma was light but smelled of sweet malt and dark fruits. The taste was very appealing it was truly sweet malt with a great cherry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured reddish amber with a small off-white head. Average hops aroma. Taste is peppery hops, with a somewhat spicy malt backbone to support it. Very decent beer, and tasted much better immediately following the John Courage Amber I had just before.

Amber. Not much aroma; a bit malty, notes of chocolate.
Really malty and full. Some late bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle - 3/19/05 - Poured a clear dark brown. there’s not much smell really...maybe a little musty.
Taste is malty, not much hoppiness in this. Taste is better than the smell. Not too bad I don’t guess. What little finish there is is malty as well. Not bad overall. I could drink it.

A nice dark beer with a thin head. Very rich and malty flavor with some slight chocolate notes. Wychwoods signature beer is one to try but not my personal favorite from them.
