COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal- Summer.
Previously 4.2%.

Traditionally craft-brewed using an innovative blend of 3 Hops and 3 Malts Wychcraft delivers a pale-straw coloured, crisp, dry ’Blonde Beer’ to savour. A seductive blend of Pale, Lager and Cara Malts give a light and gentle base of delicious dry, biscuity flavours, while the addition of English Fuggles, Styrian Goldings and Cascade hops create a wonderfully aromatic and fragrant zesty character for a highly refreshing anytime beer..

tombyars (1356) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
A recent addition to the Wychwood portfolio. Had this in Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in July 2007. Pale amber in colour with tight white head. Faint hop aroma with thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a digestive biscuit base with slight green apple fruit notes. Hop resin evident in a dry bitter aftertaste. Finish has a zesty, citrusy, gooseberry fruit flavour in the palate. A good session ale.

draught at the Anchor Inn, Sidmouth (08/2010). Blond colour, white head. Citrusy hops dominate, a bit thin it is, though.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Hobgoblin. Mid amber colour with a reasonable head. Farty and sulphuric aroma. Hoppy flavour with plenty of lemon and a malty finish with some light fruity sweetness. One of the better Wychy offerings that they have had on at the Hob.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Cask gravity at Bowl Inn, Charing. I don’t often get the chance to try Wychwood beers in cask, so I’d thought I would try this. Copper colour with lasting off white head. Yeast/hop aroma, ok in mouth, malts are pale and not over the top. Hop on finish is a little dusty, but got good citrus flavours and definite dryness. Reasonably pleasant.

Cask conditioned, gravity dispense at Merton Beer Festival 2006. Light golden in colour, citrusy nose, with a clean and crisp refreshing citrusy taste and nice bite to it. Very good beer. Also had this in Hobgoblin Cowley Road on frequent occasions this summer.
