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.

Jamedra (503) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 25, 2013
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je příjemné chmelové, zemité se slabším nádechem citrusů. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je krásná zlatá s lehkým nádechem opálové a velmi lehce kalná. Chuť je sladová s velmi jemným nádechem exotického ovoce a citrusů, okraje jsou jemné s lehkým vanilkovým závojem, finiš je slabě hořký, jemný a celkově doplňující jemnou chuť piva. Vcelku se jedná o velmi dobře pitelné pivo, jemné chuti, vynikající na žízeň a obzvlášť při práci nebo za horkých dnů.

(Flasche) Es hat eine leuchtend goldgelbe Farbe. ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist blumig, mit Honig und einer stark würzigen Note. Der Geschmack ist schlank, mit einer breiten, kurz starken Bittere, leicht harzig im gaumen raum und prickelnd auf der Zunge.

Vells (714) - Riga, 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 (69) - 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’.
