COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.

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.

Ingredients:
Hops: Fuggles and Styrians
Malts: Lager and Caramalt.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - DEC 17, 2013
Medium to light malty, caramel, quite fruity, mostly citrus, decent hops. Sweet, moderate bitter. Quite dry, bit metallic finish. Not bad. Drinkable, but nothing special - see no reason why to take this one more time

adodo (51) - Riga, LATVIA - DEC 10, 2013
Weak aroma. A golden, clear appearance with a white foam, frothy head which lasts a long time. Medium bitterness, medium sweetness and lightly sour taste. Medium body, creamy but lively palate- long finish. Overall a very nice beer but I don’t understand the description, it is not ’highly aromatic’.

Head vanished straight away, taste is to bitter and hoppy with what I think is chemical help, don’t believe I will return to this one in a hurry. Although it generally clear it dose seem to take some time to clear. I was trying the bottle version

Supertrev (48) - CHINA - NOV 25, 2013
Head retention almost non existent. Remains cloudy during drinking. Caramel taste with slight hop flavour which is covered by a chemically commercial type flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 24, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours an unclear golden yellow with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of grass, hops, hay, malt, citrus and biscuit. Has a similar grassy and malt aroma. Has a nice body. The finish is dry, bitter and grassy. Reminds me of a solid lager. Exceptionally easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

JorisPPattyn (7818) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2013
Small but dense off-white head over bubbled but not very lively looking orangeish golden beer; some faint lace. Malt/grains with an aroma of marzipan; bit of green herbs. Rather bitterish but with a maltcookies flavour, dry cakes; faintly dry-spiced, enhanced in the finish. Feels better carbonated than it looks; quite light bodied. Not half bad, after all. What the blurb about "succulent citrus and lime hop" might signify, I have no clue. Have the Witney goblins ever heard about New World C-hops?

DandyLion (515) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle at home. Pretty solid blonde beer. By which I mean a bit lagery. It's fine and drinkable. But bit bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
