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.

(50cl bottle) Crystal clear apple juice body topped by soft off-white head. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, grapefruit, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, nothing up front, finishing dryly with grapefruit and lemon. Light-medium body, some acidity, fairly drinkable.

This stuff was my first of Wychwood and have had several since, amazing summer drink. It packs a very lively spring fresh scent of grass, Grapes and mild lemon. Pours an okay pumpkin blonde, cloudy before settling to clear with a decent level white foamy head. On the Palette is bears a light, bubbly carbonated feel that is a little on the sticky side. Lovely, well balanced, if a little mild, highly refreshing, with Extra bursts of Green grape, some lemongrass, hoppy and grainy. Bears a crisp, long finish leaving the mouth feeling slightly tingly. Pleasant Blonde Ale.

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.

Bottle from old backlog notes. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a medium sized fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have biscuity malt, floral notes, light citrus, lightly toasted, some butterscotch character, very average stuff.

Oh yes! Served nicely chilled and you have a winner. Been waiting to try this a while and think it’s a very good drink, tasty and lasting in flavour. Cheers!

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a veiled pale goldenish straw with a short lived white head. Flavor is pale malt, cereal. Finish has hints of fruits, somewhat dry. Lingering fruits, some citrus notes. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Rather generic, if it not for the slightly fruity hops in it.
