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.

If you like hops, this is the beer for you. All I could smell was hops, and truthfully all I could really taste was hops. This isn’t to say the beer the beer wasn’t crisp and refreshing, it was. But the aftertaste had a tad more then a ’counterpoise of bitterness’. Probably a decent beer on a hot day. Cheers.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2007
From a 1/2-litre, this poured with a shiny orange-copper color with a rocky head ... is this an Englishman impersonating an American? The aroma almost says yes ... sweetly hoppy and inviting. In the first swallow, the endeavor slows ... this is much maltier and biscuity than its American cousins. indeed this dry, subtly balanced is elegantly balanced ... the hops are penned in, but ready to rumble in the background of this excellent beer.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 Bread, lemon, and mild caramel aroma. Cloudy golden-orange colour with decent lacing. Flavour is similar to aroma with balance between hops and citrus, but distinct bursting flavours...wish it had a better body. Fairly smooth, with faint bitter aftertaste

JonMoore (2022) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2007
Light amber colour with a slim white head. Faint hoppy and malty aroma. Quite bitter and malty taste. OK; very good for a bottled Wychwood.

The label says ’triple hopped’...I don’t know about that, but it is nicely hopped with pleasant aroma of citrus and pine. It pours medium golden orange, and though it doesn’t have the longest lasting head, it’s wonderfully ’icecream soda’ like. It’s got a smooth refreshing malty (not bready) taste and finishes with delightful hoppy mild bitterness. I don’t think I could get tired of this ale, but at $3.99 for a half liter bottle I can’t afford to try!

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2007
(bottle) Medium gold with generous off-white head. Faint floral hops aroma. Flavor was a good balance of mild hops and a slightly sweet malt. Medium body.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Pours a frost-hazed golden/copper with a decent-sized, off white head that loves me long time. Biscuity, lemony aroma profile with hints of diacetyl, vinegar and some aromatic grasses, mild florals (lilies) and sweaty yeast. Creamy & dry with a fluffiness that fills the mouth. Balanced flavor with pastry-like malts in elegant chiaroscuro against dank English hops. Flashes of tea, honey and lemon.
