3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle pours a dark copper color with a small white head and good lacing. The first smell is full of malts and caramel Aroma is similar, Body is full with low carbonation. Initial taste is neither bitter nor sweet, but the hops kick in on the finish, shich remids me of a doppelbock. Thereís an unfortunate chemical afteraste here which is the only negative to an otherwise enjoyable brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a pleasant enough ruby brown, but with a smallish head and terrible retention and lacing. The nose is all dark malts - toffee, toast and slightly burnt caramel mainly. Itís straightforward, and to be honest not that inspiring. Not a lot of hops are present, although there is a bit of resin at the start. This is followed by some pretty standard sweet dark malt. There is a weak coffee note, some molasses and caramel. Itís not terribly interesting stuff, although nor is it dreadful. I would also be more inclined to describe it as an English strong ale than an ESB.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber bottle poured a clear amber hue w/ small beige ring and good lacing. Mild aroma of malty cereal, toffee, cherries, and yeast. Flavor is light sweet initially w/ a faint bitter on the finish. Subtle taste similar to the nose, malt and a dry alcohol most dominate. Medium bodied and soft carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into an English Pint glass -- Good English ale. I think it may have been a little old. Flavors didnít ípopí like I hoped they would. Still a solid brew from Wychwood.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Iíve had this before and didnít think much of it... I must have been in a bad mood. Todayís bottle pours deep copper with a decent head. Bready malts and a nice helping of herby grassy hops. Perfumey and thereís a buttery taste. Thereís a small alcohol kick/burn and the bitterness on the palatable finish is a lip-smacker. Nicer than I remembered.
