2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[bottle from sainsburys] Has the typical wychwood aromas of burnt toast, not good. Its redeeming feature, however, is that it does have a reasonable hop character, some citric notes, which almost make up for the toast, but not quite.

A good flavoursome Wychwood brew. Nice fruit/spice on the nose, with a slightly sweet malty palate, there’s a hint of citrus hops there too! Easy drinking stuff, the thick white head leaves a lasting lacework...lovely!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The best of Wychwood that I have yet tried. Deep amber gold, generous head. Fruity hop aromas, principally citrus oil. Bold fruity hop flavours (grapefruit, pear) with a terrific soft malty body. Only criticism is it could be more full-bodied, but very good nonetheless!

Aroma has the wychwood destinctive caramel malt, but luckily to save the beer theres anough hops in here to make it alot better than any of thier other beers. Taste also has some pear and light grapefruit notes which im a big fan of, could be alot better it has to be said, as the wychwood flavour distroys most of the beer, but refreshing and quite drinkable.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Pale copper thin white head. Nice citrus, flowery hop aroma. Really rather nice. Good astringent mouthfeel. Nice citrus flavours, grapefruit and some pear drops especially on the finish. After so many heavy winter beers, this was a real pleasant change.

I’m not really a big fan of heavily hopped beers but this one worked for me.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fantastically sharp and hoppy nose. Deep gold with a hint of red. The promise of the nose is not entirely born out in the first sips, in that although pleasantly hoppy, it’s a bit thin and watery. As a result, the finish tapers very quickly. A stronger version of the same would be a fantastic beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is basically dry and hopped with a little bit of toffee, and the flavour is again very standard, dry with a hint of toffee. Overall a very normal and basic beer.

Bottle: Deep golden colour, thin lacing, white foamy layer; fine floral hoppiness with malty undertones and a touch of honey and citrus; moderate malty-bitter flavour; short but distinctive bitter-aromatic (herbal/medical) finish with some traces of malts, too. Good and pleasant - fine aromas !
