500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. OK this is it. No more Wychwood beers for me. Don’t care about the ratings anymore. I had one pint of the Prince Albert on cask that was fine, but otherwise, a waste of my drinking capacity. No more. This one has a thin beige head. Dead choc/coffee malt aroma. Some sourness in mouth with bitter choc kicking in. Lacks depth, character and taste. Thanks Wychwood for the variety, but no thanks
