BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, - JUN 10, 2006
660ml brown bottle 4.0% ABV Summer Ale. Poured a clear amber lightly carbonated with frothy/creamy head & great lacing. Nice red wine/berries aroma. Well balanced refreshing biscuit bitter hops flavour. Suprisingly full mouthfeel with long bitter finish. Another great Wychwood offering - excellent value.

Cask at the Bridge, Kingswinford. Pours pale gold with a medium head. Aroma is biscuit and citrus. Taste has light citrus and pineapple, with a medium bitter finish.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, Best before Jan 2008, drank in Feb 2007. Tangerine orange body with a small white head which turns to lace very swiftly, on each of the three pours into my Hannan Alt tumbler. The bootle claims it is thriced hopped, well I could hardly smell any, citrusy lemon, floral aroma is all I could find. Not like a true bitter in my opinion, too flowery/lemony for me. It says a blonde beer on the label, well its not a true blonde either. Fizzy beer really, slight retention of citrus flavours, otherwise nothing. Canít decide if I will try this beer again, I will if I see it in cask form, but not from a bottle.

ralphdot (973) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2009
Not as blond as I expected more like an amber colour, thin head, slight hop aroma, fairly bitter but not much else to say, average beer.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle. Golden color with a off-white head. Aromas are soft caramel with citrus and hops. Flavours are soft and buttery with a rough bitterness on the finish. Okay for a summer refresher.

scotty (1032) - SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2006
A good thirst quenching ale, on the light side but as itís labeled as a summer ale thatís to be expected really! Thereís a lot of fruity hops which are nice but it seems a bit unbalanced overall. This was tasted on a scorcher of a day and was cool rather than chilled. Sainsburys Edinburgh.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2006
Bottled. Amber, with foamy head. Scent is of caramel, malts and some hops. Bitter, burnt hops predominant in the mouth. I find it a bit too carbonated for my liking, but all in all quite good.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2006
Bottle (from Sainsburys, BBE Apr 07). Vegetal hops with a little citrus. Sweet caramelly boiled malts and tinny finish. Not good.

Bottle from Sainsburys Kidlington 04-05-06 Jolly decent golden beer, good hoppy taste smooth clean and very drinkable. Nothing fantastically exciting Iíll admit, but a good beer nonetheless.

Ingevara (768) - SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2005
Tempting color. A real mouthful of flavors and aroma sitting on a rock in the scorching sun. This ale has everything to qualify for a dark winter night but goes surprisingly well on a bright summer day as well. Rich in hops, genrous in maltiness, balanced in carbonation, overwhelming in charm. Captivating!
