A pale golden potion with delicate red hues, WychCraft has a heady burst of fresh citrus aroma derived from three infusions of Styrian golding hops. A sprig of gentle warming malty flavour finishes with a dry biscuit note and a counterpoise of bitterness.
WychCraft’s innovative new recipe includes adding three infusions of Styrian Goldings hops to the copper, to create a highly aromatic brew, bursting with succulent citrus and lime hop character. A light base of delicately flavoured English Fuggles hops, and the use of a lager malt, help retain the signature hop character and create a wonderfully aromatic and fragrant summertime beer. Beguiling to the end.

Hops: Fuggles and Styrians
Malts: Lager and Caramalt.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a veiled pale goldenish straw with a short lived white head. Flavor is pale malt, cereal. Finish has hints of fruits, somewhat dry. Lingering fruits, some citrus notes. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Rather generic, if it not for the slightly fruity hops in it.

venom666 (528) - Elche, SPAIN - JUN 3, 2014
Crystal amber color with a generous layer of white creamy and lasting foam. The aroma is fruity, with malt presence and an herbal touch. Taste is caramel, with prominence of malt, some corn and a rather nice hoppy end. Some metallic taste.

77ships (5036) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2014
500 ml. bottle @ home. Clear golden, light amber, little spiderweb head. Smells sweet and oily, aromatic oil, orange peel zest, touch hoppy and oily herbal hops. Tastes bitter herbal, aromatic oils hops, herbal, lime zest, caramel sugar, lingering herbal bitter, touch sorbet, crystal sugar. Oily bit sticky body. Very basic but very well-done and quite enjoyable. Highly unimposing & went wonderfully with food so this basically sort of a truly great table beer. Far more enjoyable than I expected initially.

Douberd (3059) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle 500ml at home, poured into a big Guinness glass. ABV 4.5%, simplest Wychwood label I’ve seen but still a nice one. Deep golden yellow colour on the body, clear, with two fingers of white head. Thick and soapy, with very good retention, medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemon,lemon peel, english hops, light malts. Nice taste, refreshing, with citrus, slighty malty, grass, light hops on the finish. Sweet beer in general with the citrus balancing it a bit. Medium thin body, good carbonation, quite dry palate. Overall a quite nice beer, simple but very drinkable.
