2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very clear and golden with little head. Buttery aroma with a little caramel. Spritzy on the palate with an unpleasant bitter finish. Weak in flavor, astringent and grainy. Also, watery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale hazy yellow. Thick white head, doesn´t last very long though. Citric, hoppy nose. Spicy flavour. Acidic, chemical taste. Fruity. Great bitterness. Refreshing with segments of herbs and yeast. Medium to full bodied.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bronze golden amber colour with a pretty poor white head. Caramel and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is nothing exceptional. Thin sweet grapefruit start in the taste with some bitterness accompanying it.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 Original rating 03/30/2005 I felt sorta bad panning this beer because it’s catty, but it’s the brewer’s own damn fault for using clear bottles (my second bad experience with Wychwood). Straw colored with a faint layer of white head. Grassy hop aroma hiding under the skunk. Some caramel malt flavor and a lemony-sour finish. 4/3/5/2/9=2.3
Re-rate 08/09/2006 Well... RAYBOY01 brought a couple of these to our latest tasting, so we all got a chance to re-rate this gem. Pale blond with a weak haze and a skinny white head. As far as the aroma is concerned, a huge skunk-assedness & herbal funkedness equals a general barnyard-crappiness. Thin & tingly on the palate with a sharp yeast profile, a grassy/herbal finish and an overall "off" flavor. 2/3/4/2/5=1.6

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden colored ale that has a similar aroma of a pilsner. The first taste coats the tongue offering some honey flavors. There is also a bittering effect in the aftertaste. Not a bad organic ale but not as good as the beers Wolavers is producing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a white head. Aromas are sweet, buttery malts with fruity hops. Flavours are initially fruity, caramel smooth malts and lots of hops. Followed by a dry, bitter, citrus aftertaste. Somehow a bit rough on the palate and has too much carbonation. Otherwise, not bad.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very hoppy aroma, cascade?, fruity (apple, apricot, don’t how to qualify it). Pale golden color, small white head, good lace. Maltsweet and hops but that’s it. Thin and stale.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
When my girlfriend can smell this in the other room, that’s never a good sign. This brew is a skunk run over on a major interstate in a rural part of your state. Drink only for the cool pic on the bottle.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Smells both like urine and hunting skunk scent cover... seriously, not stretching that at all. Taste is mild straw and farm animal poop, mud, grass and sweat flavors. Oh boy!! give me more. ugh this is so damn nasty. Thanks for putting it in a clear bottle fellas. Actually has some oatmeal and toasted bread flavor, but they don’t redeem this one. The sublte ashtray notes really win me over on this one!!
