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.

From Apr 2008 This pours a clear yellow gold with a huge head of foam. I notice some floaties in the glass so this probably isn't the freshest of samples. :^( Very good head retention and lots of lacing but the floaties put me off. The smell is of sweet and earthy malt and there's some fruitiness, mainly citrus, there as well. The taste has notes of biscuit and citrus and they compliment each other nicely. Smooth drinking, the mouthfeel is medium until the finish where it becomes a bit watery. The finish itself has a slight lemony flavour that's nice. Dammit. I was hoping that this would be fresh but I know that when you buy bottles of pretty much anything from the UK, you're taking chances. There's a code imprint on the bottle that says 7 CHI 10:32 but what is *that* supposed to mean??? Why can't brewers come up with a universal, easy to read code so that their customers know what they are getting by simply glancing at the label?? Is that too much to ask??? OK, rant over. Overall, it's still a nice tasty drop that warrants a revisit. I hope I get luckier the next time... Cost: US$3.99

500ml bottle. Pours a bubbly head which dissipates quite quickly. Has a pale orange colour. Below average carbonation. Nice dirty lacing. Malty and mildly hoppy aromas. Flavours are citrusy and mild malts. Floral hops and some breadiness. Nice balance of hops and light malts, not one overpowering the other. Light malty creaminess for mouthfeel. No bitterness on the palate. Pretty smooth and easy drinking. Great taste for a low abv beer at 4.5%. Pretty good!

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2016
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.

500 ml bottle. Hazy pale gold color. Small creamy white head. Grainy malt nose with faint fruity notes. Tart grainy malt flavor is biscuity with a hint of mustard seed.light citrus hops with a touch of lime zest.

weordie (1518) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a light copper with a white head. The aroma is pear drops. Taste is a little lacking, some sweetness, but overall like a normal English bitter.

BierMeHoos (655) - Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Poured from 500mL bottle. Appearance is a light golden hue, decent head. Aroma is lightly sweet and definitely a blonde ale. Taste is same sweet, fruity malt, reads very blonde. Palate is medium body with a decent carbonation. Overall, decent blond, for its style, but low ABV, decent beer.

slowrunner77 (16235) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 8, 2015
this bottle seemed a little fresher than most of the esb types from wychwood that have sat on the shelves at BevMos for Godknowshowlong. Outside of a cool fruity hop profile, though, it’s pretty light and forgettable. Decent refresher.
