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.

Das äußere Erscheinungsbild verspricht mehr. Alles in allem ein Bier wie viele andere auch. Nichts dolles

Douberd (3728) - 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.

czlowiekwiadro (497) - POLAND - APR 19, 2014
zapach chmielowy - kwiatowy, ale dość delikatny. mętny złoty kolor. piana nie powala. w smaku wytrawny, z dominującą długą i dość mocną goryczką

Lore (1664) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2014
pale golden colour, some white head;aroma of wine cellar, floral and grassy hops and some sweat, unfortunately...taste of cardboard, some hoppy bitterness and minimal honey sweetness;quite dry beer...drinkable, but will never be my favourite - to be honest, this one single bottle is more than enough for the rest of my life from this beer

edsspoon (798) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Pours golden with a thick frothy white head, which gradually fades to a ring. Aroma is hops, some citrus and a hint of honey. Taste reflects the aroma - hoppy, bitter, some honey and sweetness. Nothing particularly interesting but its good.

Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Poured a clear gold with minimal head that dissipated quickly. Light straw aroma. Active carbonation. Very average flavour with a slightly bitter finish. Nothing really special.

MichaelAwesome (6007) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2014
Simple and average with just a bit of straw and some malt. Refreshing, drinkable but no rocket science in any way.

McTapps (6044) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light yellow-golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of weak hops, straw, apples, barley and pine. Medium dry and quite thin finish. Average beer.

Mr_Pink_152 (2458) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
500ml bottle from local supermarket. Dark orange with small white head. Lots of bubbles. Nice aroma of citrus and fruit. Sweet hoppy taste, leading to a slight bitterness.
