3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark copper colour, rocky head that does not stay long, almost no lacing. Aroma is mostly herbal hops, some toffee. Light bitterness, the beer is rather dry, with bitter finish. Light body, soft carbonation, very easy to drink. Quite ok, although the taste might be more intensive.

I donít even know with Wychwood anymore. Itís either my favourite shitty brewery or my least favourite awesome brewery. I have never had one of their beers truly disappoint me, but I have also never had the pleasure of one truly wowing me. Even though as I drink this I am gradually increasing the score. Pretty, sure, but there is something weird and fruity going on here. Maybe I like it one sip. Maybe not the next. Itís like a light fruitcake or a mild plum pudding, some dark cherry liqueur got spilled in it. Like some brown with sexy nondescript jam on it. This one has some nice body, a lilí chomp I reckon, better than their usual fare. Alrighty, now I want to watch "Oliver" so this must be a bit of okay then.

This is a decent ale that I tried when I was in England - It runs a bit closer to the amber ales and isnít overly bitter like some - It has a toasty and caramel taste to it. Definitely enjoyable :)

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Dark brown body allowing shadows through with a light tan creamy decent sized head. Spotty lacing.
Aroma: Rich caramel candy aroma with a bit of a wood scent.
Taste: Biscuit and toast flavors with a touch of roasted nuts.
Mouthfeel: It has a good mouthfeel. Nothing spectacular to point out, it just feels right for this beer giving it a medium presence on the palate with a touch of bite from the roasted grains.
Overall: Itís a fairly average ESB. Itís an import so Iím willing to try it again if I can get it fresh. It didnít have as much of a caramel overtone as many other ESBís that Iíve had, but it has a nice biscuit quality which is pleasant enough to make it an enjoyable drinking experience. Itís in that middle ground of not recommending but not warning against drinking.

Non male questa bitter inglese dal colore rosso molto scuro, la schiuma Ť ovviamente minima, molto leggera e beverina. Líaroma Ť di malto, mentre al sapore si sente caffŤ tostato, amara il giusto.
