1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours yellow with thin white head with good lacing. Nose is slightly skunky. The front half of the taste is lost in skunk. The latter half is hoppy and might be pleasant if this beer had not been ruined by ultraviolet light. Sigh.

When a bottle winds up being more impressive than the beer you know something’s gone wrong. Having had the pleasure of tasting Wychwood beers on their home turf I know I can enjoy them. Too bad that there’s such a strong reliance on marketing that the beer gets lost in a "cool looking" clear bottle.

Bottle from Sainsburys. So it’s come to this, rating Wychwood: Little head in this golden bitter, nasty house aroma. Standard Wychwood flavour, malty. Quite pleasent, suprisingly.

Wow, really bad. Looked like urine, smelled like urine, and tasted like- well, I can;t say urine ’cause I have never had the privilege of tasting piss. Actually, I amgine piss would have more body and flavor then Scarecrow.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very fruity. It has a light and fresh flavor, lacks maturity and depth. The head is OK. A nice lingering bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ho hum. Usual Wychwood aroma characteristics (clear bottle?, yeast character? Golden. Obviously has plenty of hops but their aroma is drowned out. Taste of grapefruit and good bitter finish though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very, very skunky nose. Luckily I am a fan of skunky beers. Honey body with a thin film of bubbles. Great hop and light malt balance. Slightly sweet finish. IMO, this is a very under rated beer. It would be a great session beer-it isn’t super light, but it a’int heavy at all. If you are a fan of skunky beers, this one is for you.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden colour with slim white head. Aroma is fruity. Malty and fruity taste. A touch metallic in the finish. Thin bodied and moderately carbonated. I’ve had worse pasteurised.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden. Fruity nose, a little citric/acidic(Maris Otter-reminiscence?). Papery, fruity flavour, ending with a stale, somewhat fruity, but dry bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden, almost no head. Aroma is fruity, with exotic touches, but also spicy. Fruity flavor that turns into a distinct hoppiness. Maybe alittle artificial somewhere....
