3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper red/brownish colour. Well balanced ale with roasted malts, some (dark) fruitiness, a hint of chocolate, and a pleasant medium bitter finish. My favourite Wychwood (so far anyway) and the bottle is as always a work of art. Too bad the clear bottle skunks the beer for many of you Americans.

Lots of good flavours, but not as intense as I would hope for, espically from the style. Earthy, nectarine, raisin, dak roasted coffee. Handles the fairly bitter finisih well, oddly citrus in the end.

pours brown, toasted nuts, sugar aroma The flavor is full, dark with a nice bitter quality, however the palate was thin, too thin for this beer.

I was wondering why this brew was flying off the shelf at the local Lick’er Bored; its actually quite a nice English Ale. Pours a reddish amber colour. Has a sweet and fruity flavour with a bitter finish...

Deep red brown color with a medium thick head and good lace. Sweet fruity aroma with malt and hop accents. Sweet fruity malt flavor with a hoppy, bitter finish. Great flavor complexity. Smooth, full bodied and slightly warming.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nothing really special here. Some nice malty tones, but it also has an odd musk that doesn’t work. Too thin mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2004 Very nice looking beer, does have a skunky aroma like the "fiddlers elbow" I have had. (probably the clear bottle. Nice malty flavor, slightly dry & weak finish. Re-rate 01/08/2004. This was worse the 2nd time around, even more skunk.

Ruby amber hue. Nice fizzy whitish head. Nose is somewhat skunky, light malts. Pale malts first, light to medium bodied, big bitterness and fruit in the finish. Very drinkable, although there is kind of an "off" taste in the middle. Label is great.
