COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.

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.

Ingredients:
Hops: Fuggles and Styrians
Malts: Lager and Caramalt.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2006
Golden color; nice head. Strange aroma, with vegetables, metallic, red wine. The taste has some malt, some malt crispness and a pretty high bitterness; it has a quite dry mouthfeel and the final is also lightly metallic. Nothing special.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Supposed to be a blonde but comes across as just a dull bitter. Dull.
