TEJA (1376) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle from Citymarket in Kouvola. Lasting light Brown head. Clear dark amber color. Rich Brown malt aroma with a tuch of caramell. Distinct light roasted malt taste with a firm bitterness and a low sweetness.

Ottima red ale inglese molto profumata e amabile al naso: frutti rossi e miele su tutto. Al gusto riaffiorano i frutti rossi e il loro acidulino ne fa apprezzare la beverinità. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

mkel07 (3741) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from Cellarbrations Sandy Bay 131214. Copper red colour with a slim head. Another good beer from Wychwood. Toffee and malty goodness.

DerWeg (1525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
A red berry-coated bottle pour with berry-like flavors almost hinting at ripe raspberry taste. Small white cap and dry hop nose. Other flavors that play in are caramel malt and leafy hops. Decent.

dnicolaescu (947) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 1, 2014
BOTTLE 50 CL. The aroma is light like that of most English bitters, still interesting: fruity lollipop sweetness, some soapy fresh pumpkin aldehydes and oily fruity seeds. The flavour is a bit simpler: light fruit sweetness, well toasted biscuits and herbal hops with a light but harsh bitterness.

robinvboyer (3264) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Another disappointing beer from this brewery. There is nothing imperial or special about this beer. Typical light UK hopping, with the same biscuity, slightly bready, slightly yeasty malt profile all the beers from wychwood have. Boring.

panzerwolf (86) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Deep amber with medium head. Aroma of toffee mixed with some malts. Very earthen taste, not much bitterness, fruity. Thought it was ok enough, a very easy, smooth beer to drink!

Raistlin (144) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
As always this brewery delivers. Amazing beer. Beautiful amber redish colour with long lasting head. It has well balanced taste, not too sweet or bitter. Great finish that pleasantly lingers in your mouth.

mmahut (1121) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber clear body with low head. Aroma is malty, little bit bread like. Taste has malty sweetness, slightly on caramel, medium noble bitterness. Biscuit after taste. Body is medium, high carbonation.

Gethinbeer (2213) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
Clear reddish amber pour with a frothy white head. Fruity malt, toffee aroma. Lovely flavour of earthy caramel malt. Berry in the finish. Nice balanced texture. Possibly a little thin in body. Nice enough.
