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.

aroma was typical of this brewery a musty ,sour malt.it is a tradenmark of this brewery and is distinguising it from others.The problem is the beers tend to taste much the same.Not bad ,but different labels don’t make it taste different.Great label ideas.Average head.Palate was about average.Color amber.Has that woodsy.sour twisting taste.Finish somewhat sweet.Pretty good beer,but it tastes pretty much like the last one I tasted from them

Gold with Yellow Hues..White Skin. Sweet Citrusy and Bicuit Notes on the Nose. Sweet Foral Hop Beginning...Bitter Biscuit Malt and Hop Flavor with Drying Aftertaste. Alot of Flavor for a Bitter and Would be Quite Enjoyable on a Hot Summer Day.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 I have always been put off of drinking any Wychwood beer due to the stupid dungeons and dragons botttles. I hence classified these as weirdos’ beers. Well, for this little bit of Wychcraft I was wrong. A nice pale colour with good carbonation. Dry, slightly sweet and very refreshing. Tasty - well done weirdos!

PorterPounder (7432) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml bottle. Light orange pour with a thin, but sticky white head. Clean, fresh light citrus aroma with a hint of spruce. Mild bitter flavor with some pear-like fruity notes, a hint of mint and some sweet biscuity notes. Tangy mouthfeel. One of the better ones from Wychwood.

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.

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.

doubelknv3 (1083) - Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2007
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
