Bendrixian (1134) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Clear brew with a darker auburn colour and the head has a cream colour. Muted aroma, there is almost no aroma as a matter of fact. there is some dried fruit, caramel, banana. On the palate it is medium bodied, has a malted note and some heat on the finish. Meh, better than the hob goblin but that isnít saying much.

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 thatís 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.
