4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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

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.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Orange blonde with a well formed head. Its got a light citrusy aroma. A meaty blonde, sits very well on the palate, and I’ve enjoyed this every time I’ve tried it.
