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.

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Clear, amber golden with a somewhat rough, off-white head. Very fresh aroma of citrus and litchi. Fairly light in body with a discreet malt base but extremely fresh and fruity accents with the citrus dominating. Dry finish. Extremely fresh and quaffable. 150807

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle. Sharp aroma, medium to high carbonation, orange hue with as always with wychwood beers a head which quickly goes. Not sure if this is a bad beer but I get a metallic taste which coats the back of my tongue, unpleasant to drink.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Small white head. Citus, hops and yeast nose. Blond hue. Slight carbonation. Hoppy notes, long taste with a dry finish. Some sweetness. Nice balance. Light body. Some metal taste. Not a bad summer beer.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2007
Clear, pale golden body with red tinges. Straightforward taste, light citric notes similar to the aroma, light to medium body, easy to drink but a bit uneventful.

mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Wychcraft’s aroma is mainly pale malt with citrus undertones. It pours cloudy light amber with marked cloudiness and light but durable carbonation. The flavor is clean pale malt with hops both in front and on the backthroat. The palate leaves behind a warming malt sweetness (nice) and up-front bitterness (not so nice). Overall a well-made British bitter, if not quite top tier.
