3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at the Wet Grocer in Gunnison, CO. Pours hazy dark yellow with a large, creamy, off-white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw), average hops (flowers), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple and pear. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Minimal head, with light hop aroma. Has a hint of citrus and is quite bitter. Too many bubbles which make it hard to drink.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of diacetyl and soap. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Just another very characterless ale from Wychwood.

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?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
