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.

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 (3049) - 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.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear amber ale with tons of micro floaties and a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Excellent retention. Cookie aroma. Same flavor, but decently balanced with those Golding hops; leans just a hair on the sweet side. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet, mineral finish.

yespr (30676) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours golden orange with a lacing white head. Sweet and slight raisin aroma. Hoppy dry flavour, slight malty. Bitter dry finish.

robslob (1) - Hull, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2007 does not count
Nice looking bottle, cloudy copper appearance with flowery sweetened aroma. Some lacing but little on the head, lacking in malt and a bit weak on the palete. It was okay but no more.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Papsoe, another great session] Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Clear flat looking body with a golden color. Nice hoppy feel, hint of grass and light floral. Tiny bit of citrus. Some fruit and caramel. Light to medium bodied with a light dry texture and an average carbonation. Balanced bitter and sweet. Light dry and floral like finish. Quit nice. 15-08-2007

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Not as good as wyhwood’s hobgobline but similarly underated. Classic understated English style. Could use more hop and malt flavor no doubt but nice in its own subdued underground well water way.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Pours a pale gold with a very small white head. The aroma to me smells sweet with lingering hops in the background. I expected it to be a sweeter tasting beer but it’s really not. There is a small hoppy aftertaste but the palate feels like sparkling water. The aroma was better than the taste. Kinda flat.....meh.
