3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours from the bottle a transpicuous deep mahogany color with the head majestic in size, creamy in texture and a beauteous light tan in color, as it ever so slowly fades away a silky sheet of lace forms to cover the glass. Nose is sweet malt dominated, fresh and inviting to the senses; start is also malt rich and sweet with the top light to medium in feel. Finish is meek in its acidity with the hops delicate in their spiciness, very dry and slightly tart aftertaste, a good representative to the style.

I really like this Strong Ale. A nice copper-red color, but a short lasting head

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small offwhite head, mostly diminishing on a mahogony body. Aroma is moderately malty with carmel notes. Flavor is lightly sweet, lively carbonation,and noticable bitterness in the finish. fairly well balanced. Decent brew.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper-red with a small short-lasting head. Very light aroma, but hints of bitterness and caramel. Nutty and malty aroma with a nice amount of sweetness. Lasting aftertaste. Enjoyable and refreshing and not much more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium ruby amber clear under a medium small lasting tan head. Slightly metallic woody, n stronger biscuit and light roasted malt aroma. Medium body. Chewy, lightly sweet golden syrup and caramel malt, and mild hop bitter flavoured start. Middle and finish lack oomph and character as it degenerates to a stalish bitter and weaker malts. Drinkable but not in the same league as the Fuller ales

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Excellent. Full-bodied. Full-flavored ale. Tawny in color, thick in texture, hints of chocolate, cinnamon and a perfect balance of hops. Fun to drink in October right around Halloween because of its name and label artwork. So far my favorite of the Wychwood brews!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown color, slightly ruby with a nice sheet of head and lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma was slightly dusty and cobwebbish from the hops, I think it's an old bottle or perhaps the fact that it's a clear bottle. The flavor is pretty hoppy on this one, more than most ESA. This wasn't a bad beer, very run of the mill but I can see how it would be much better on tap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost opaque color and nice head. Heavy taste that has caramel and some burnt notes but seems to fade rather quickly to a dull finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown ale with a small, quick-dissapearing head. Faint malty aroma of caramel. Nutty, currant molasses flavours. Full-bodied beer, but still very smooth. Nice label too. Bottle.

This was a very nice English Ale. I had it at Arie's London Grill downtown Kalamazoo. Nice red/brown color. Nutty burnt marshmallow flavor. Slight hops bitterness but not overwhelming in the least. Very smooth. Very nice.
