3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml brown bottle from Bottle Barn. Floral aroma. Takes awhile to find out it’s citrus. Hazy orange amber color with a white head that left lace tatters. Medium body with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with citrus peel and bready notes. It finishes fairly dry, with a bit of malt and a good dose of bitter in a floral, arguably citrus, way. Just another very excellent ale from Wychwood. Perhaps a bit more complex than most of theirs, but aren’t they all just great?

A golden bronze body beneath a quickly dissipating head. Floral aroma, orange hints, bread dough. Watery. Flavor was biscuits and orange marmalade. Unremarkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, october 2007. Beatifull, citric, lemmony, tangy hop aroma. Clear golden-orange color with a medium, white head. Malty flavor with somee bittersweetness coming from a touch of crystal malts and hops balancing them. Nice salty finnish. Medium to light mouthfeel, a tad empty, but it helps drinking and makes it refreshing. Short aftertaste. Nice, balanced and sessionable special bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 500 ml. Clear, orange-gold with a medium sized sticky head that endures. Spicy-grass and earthy, caramel molasses aroma. Taste of caramel on the front turns apple-fruity then to a peppery, spicy wood (cedar?) and lemon-herb bitterness on the finish. Light-medium, very smooth, hop-tingly and mostly dry palate. Excellent bitter.
