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.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, 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.

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a clear, pale golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is hops, some grass or grain and honey. The taste is mild and very pleasant.

Dark brown 500ml bottle with attractive labelling. Poured a clear dark gold with light carbonation and white frothy head. Subtle citrus fruit nose. Beautifully balanced cereal flavour with fruit hop bitterness. Full bitter mouthfeel. One of Wychwood’s best.

Wychwood Wychcraft 16 oz bottle Unknown brewing (marked 6 CHO 23:12), bewitched 03/07 Moderate pour in a tulip glass Poured a golden amber with an average white frothy somewhat lasting whitish head with fair lacing. Smelt of moderate bittersweet oranges, sweet bread and light spruce. Taste was upfront moderate bittersweet orange bread and light spruce followed by a moderate to strong bitter toasted grain and spruce and sweet biscuit on an average length finish. Palate was fizzy, creamy, light to medium bodied and lightly astringent. Overall, a mellow hop oriented British pale ale with some reasonable bite.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Pours copper with almost no head and minimal carbonation. Smells of caramel, yogurt, sugar, dough, traces of sweet oranges. Tastes earthy with some underlying nuttiness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly hoppy. Finish is mildly bitter with some peppery splashes.

dwyerpg (5673) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 19, 2009
A light citrus-orange aroma, pretty orange color. Flavor is light, a distinct citrus character, but right at the line before it becomes too much. Some malts at the end. A pretty decent brew.
