A kind gift from Mes & Sim, cheers guys...Uuuum, yeah...
I’ve put it off for a while but the much anticipated moment has arrived...
Anyway, copper with an off white head. Nose is quite malty with some sweet brown sugar notes and spicy dark fruit, almost a port like hint also. Taste is much the same, sweet plum and malt, pretty awful actually...
The name says it all really...it’s basically Plumb Duff...

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Malty, alcohol, yeast abnd fruity nose. Ruby red colour. Taste of plum, yeast, malt. An enduring sweet aftertaste. Tart and fruity with some cloying. Not bad but typically simple from Wychwood.

RobBestwick (595) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2007
Bottled. Rich raisiny aroma with hints of Wychwood artificialness. Deep copper hue with a off white head. Fruity (cherry/plum) flavour and very sweet. Syrupy texture and bitter finish. OK but not the best christmas ale.

Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle courtesy of DownsouthGav. Deep red / amber pour with thin head. Aroma is toffee / malts / spices / hops and some alcohol. Taste is plums / dark fruits / slightly tart with alcohol finish.

Camrakipah (17) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2007
Cinq cent milliletres (Short-changed Pint) bottle from Sainsburys. Not impressed. After the initially pleasing ruby appearance, there is a disappointingly acidic fruit taste followed up by nothing very much. I seem to remember last year’s Bah Humbug being a better offering from Wychwood.
