500ml bottle from Royal Liquors poured into a Chimay glass. Pours a very light brown/dark red color with a good bit of frothy off-white head. Aroma is of sweet malt. Caramel and fermented citrus fruits. Slight hop spicyness is hiding in there too. Taste is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Slight caramel taste along with a stronger taste of fruit. Medium bodied with a thick sticky texture, fizzy carbonation and a average length finish. Overall, its not too bad. Nothing I would search out again but at 4 bucks a bottle it is drinkable.

King Goblin is a reddish-brown English Strong Ale. This one reminded me a lot of their Hobgoblin only with a slightly more hoppy flavor. I enjoy any beer named after an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons monster. I can’t wait for their Kobold Weizen.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a dense off-white head. Aroma is bready malt, some caramel, slightly spicy hops. Flavor is bread, caramel, a bit of toffee, some mild fruity esters. Fairly sweet. More mild than I thought it would be, so a bit of a disappointment, but I guess that’s far the course with Wychwood, in my experience. Certainly drinkable and fairly tasty, particularly since I love English ales, but just not quite enough oomph.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Body is clear brown with a reddish hue. A finger of dense off-white foam on top. A sharp phenolic smell, reminiscent of nail polish remover, for a starter. Later a mellowing whiff of caramel and burnt sugar. Taste is on the sweet side of bitter-sweet. Sharp caramelly, with some sourish grainy malts tones, and notes of roasted nuts. Medium full. Earthy, light peppery bitterness throughout. I did not fully enjoy this one. Appears unrefined a rough around the edges.
