There seems to have been an older and newer formulation, I reckon, so my rating is an average of the two. As has been noted elsewhere here, the newer version is a wee bit hoppier, and I fancied more the older, slightly sweeter variant. Still, a nice lighter ale, well drinkable under any conditions.

Rare treat to find this interesting drop. They put some effort into this brew

Despite its stupid name it’s actually very nice. Quite sweet to taste and smell ok too

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2001
Malty, earthy, hoppy, with yeasty notes. Surprisingly full-flavoured and complex for Wychwood.

Please note - I cannot compare this to real Dogs Bollocks, understood. Anyhoo, This is an average ale that is quite strong and fruity with a dry mouthfeel. Pretty dull, though.

Aroma is typical wychwood with their sort of burnt soggy cardboard hoppines, but not as bad as usual since a sweetness helps it out. Taste is mainly malty with a nice honey sort of sweetness finish is a nicer type of wychwood hopps which is reasonably wet. Alround a not bad beer not sure if i could session it though.

imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2008
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. Had this for quite a while. Gold amber with white head. Full, slightly sweet and cardboardy beer, but with a background spiciness and grainy flavour. The hops have melded into the malt body over time. It’s ok.

Clean, zippy and refreshing. The sweetness has been reduced, and there is now a hoppy balance to the finish.
