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.

Very fruity. It has a light and fresh flavor, lacks maturity and depth. The head is OK. A nice lingering bitterness.

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.

2.5 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.

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....

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
<iBottle. This beer is brewed of ecological ingredients.
The colour is dark gold; the finger thick white foam is made of relatively big bubbles.
The smell is pretty mild with some hints of bitter hops and fruity malt. There is also a somewhat burned flavour.
The carbonation is just right for pale ale and the bubbles are quite small.
The taste starts with a dry bitterness and a growing sweet note. The body is quite weak and a little sour. The bitterness is quite simple and a bit metallic, with some flavours of bitter herbs (sage? wormwood?). The aftertaste is dry and unbalanced with a touch of acid drops.
A bitter experience that wasn’t balanced with enough of malt.
