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.

Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Straw-yellow in color. Aromas of citrus, light floral hops, and hay. Med-light bodied with dry bitter hop flavors, little yeasty with slight lemon zest.

BeerandBlues2 (11047) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 29, 2007
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.

Englander (21) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2007
Minimal head, with light hop aroma. Has a hint of citrus and is quite bitter. Too many bubbles which make it hard to drink.

Ernest (6901) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2007
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.

bhensonb (12945) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
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?

TaxiDriver (1569) - Stadland, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle. Flowers, light yeasty. Small creamy off-white head, cloudy orange body. Moderate bitter, short duration. Light to medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation, chalky finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2007
A golden bronze body beneath a quickly dissipating head. Floral aroma, orange hints, bread dough. Watery. Flavor was biscuits and orange marmalade. Unremarkable.

Fukito (976) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 10, 2007
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.

nearbeer (4379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2007
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.

thornecb (5009) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Pours bright amber into a shaker. White head quickly subsides to skim surface. Slight resin aromas. Upfront caramel with a lasting bitter finish. Nice.
