worth trying. solid, balanced and is not heavy on the palate or your gut. It froths nicely without the overburdening head that never ceases. One characteristic is its clean tasting properties which draws attention to the care taken to produce the beverage. Brownish in color, almost an amber hue. Enjoy!

Originally rated May 2007. Comes in a classy-labeled brown bottle, that seperates this brew from others that Wychwood brews. Best before date is 21 JAN 08. This organic ale pours a clean copper colour with an off-white head, that is creamy, but does not stay as long as most beer of this type. Still, some decent lacing remains on the glass and a tiny coating on the brew itself. The carbonation is average. The aromas are on the sweet side, but not too much. A bit of fudge and fruits. Wow ! The taste I must say, is very, very good and well-balanced. Some grain and caramel at first, with then, some mild bitterness, wood and smoke in the aftertaste. All of that, and not too strong, so that this brew is still refreshing for all seasons. The mouthfeel is almost dry. Usually, I find organic beers to be quite different, but if someone did not know this fact, they would think this is a regular, very well-brewed bitter. Surprisingly inexpensive at the LCBO, for this kind of quality. Very much recommended. Raistlin (410) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2010
amber, hazy, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness, salty, medium body, thick feel, average carbonation, Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Clear, light amber color...ample froth atop...
Aroma: a creamy thing, light, yeasty, zesty, a bit of bready malt...
Taste: sweetish, fruitish, a spank of hops, nicely bitter, juicy,tasty, yum...Medium bodied, sufficient malt, a touch of caramel there, very much delicious.
Here’s an organic ale I can stand up and salute. Very tasty, not just noble, but well worth the drinking. If you want to go organic, here’s the perfect place.

Clear amber with a thin head. Sticky English hop aroma, mild, a bit spicy with citrus hints. Buttery caramel notes also. Nice big smooth palate. Toffee and mellow, slightly woody hop flavor. Perfect balancing bitterness. Lingering hop finish. Nice ale.

Some citrus orange flavor. Nice amber orange color. Fruity hoppiness with interesting peppery bitterness. Organic, from a bottle, 16.9 ounces at Woodman’s. WhiteAlePower (92) - Long Island, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours a translucent reddish brown with a decent off-white head, which diminishes not too quickly, but is far from long lasting. The flavour is SURPRISINGLY well balanced for an ESB. Very nice touch of hops, but aside from that the fruitiness is very prevalent, and a very nice dry finish! Very well brewed. drpimento (3627) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Nice bitter. Got this bottle at Sam’s in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. Poured with a medium tan head that settled down to a partial thin cover and a little lace. Color is a clear nice medium honey amber. Aroma is tropical fruits at first then a little hoppy, malty, and burnt sugar. Flavor’s very similar, but more dominant burnt sugar, and hops. Good carbonation and mouth. Nice bittersweet finish. Session beer. ComradeK (1236) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber, with a firm head. As it progresses, it leaves good lacing. The nose is mainly smooth malt, with hints of sweet citrus and floral hops. The initial hops flavour is very interesting: fruity, with strong candied orange peel notes. It continues into a slightly unusual, yet quite pleasant, sweet malt finish, with a lingering aftertaste. A very enjoyable beer - I must applaud HRH Prince Charles for his fine creation, as I am certain he had much to do with the production of this beer. Jokes aside, it is great to taste an organic beer that is actually very enjoyable, as opposed to bland or unpalatable, which describe most other organic beers I have had.

I like this stuff. Beautiful amber color and an attractive label on the bottle. Clean, crisp, slightly bitter with a flavorful dry finish. Medium-bodied mouthfeel, nice level of lively carbonation and I really like the hops in this stuff.
