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.

cattaneopapa (189) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle 500ml. Aroma: Typical hoppy blonde ale aroma with notes of biscuits. Appearance: It pours a clear transparent golden colour with a little white head. Taste: Citrusy start leads to a well balanced hoppy finish. Medium carbonation. It’s better than your average blonde ale.

Ikerr (5) - - JAN 11, 2014 does not count
Decent nose, nice looking, expected hoppier for "thrice hoped". Overall an OK beer, won’t be spending time trying to find it though.

sudomorph (644) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a white, one finger head that covers the glass in lacing. Aroma is hoppy with hints of caramel, bread, and a touch of sugar sweetness. Taste is mildly bitter with some bready notes to balance it out. Slight fruity and caramel notes with a short, dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly prickly carbonation on the tongue. Overall not bad. Could be a bit more flavourful but well worth a try. Cheers!
