3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A buxom full bodied ale, the quality you’d expect from Wye Valley brewery. Clean taste, no nasty afters.... works well with roasted badger with a tureen of otter giblets and vole outings on an autumnal afternoon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Threshers - bottle conditioned. Warm gold colour with a rampant loose cream coloured head; heady aromas of honey, citrus and caramel; quite sharp citrus flavour to start, then the sweetness develops and overtakes; leaving a sticky, sweet caramel finish, with a slightly burnt dryness. An impressive beer - and the labels not bad either!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask. Pale amber with a good size white head. Little scent, slightly hoppy. Quite bitter and also quite sweet. Citrus fruit, caramel and some malt but a bit too sweet for my taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle courtesy of geth_in_beer. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit muted on this one, though. Light pale malt and a bit of straightforward earthy hops. Moderate bitterness with a soft earthy finish. A bit pithy.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark gold or pale amber. Big frothy white head. I just can’t define the aroma. Sweet cardboard? And the taste? Malt? Plus something else. What? Fruity sourness, I think, with some dryness at the finish. I’m totally confused after rating my first Doppelbock a few minutes ago...

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear Golden beer, malty and hoppy aroma but really nice citrus tang crisp bite to this beer and with a slight sourness leading to a dry finish. Can’t say that I have ever been to struck on Wye Valley but my opinions may change a little as this really is a very good bottled beer.

Cask@The Roebuck, Richmond, London. Quite nice. Some juicy, earthy bitter hops, and a dry finish. Fresh, with some light aromatics, summery sort of ale, pleasant, easy drinking.
