"Fiddlers Elbow is Wychwood’s lighter style ale perfect for summer beer and evokes lazy, hazy days of summer images of golden meadows & ripe corn fields. This wheat brewed refreshing summer ale is 4.5% ABV. The addition of the choicest English wheat malt perfectly complements the use of Styrian Goldings hops. The end result is a wonderful combination of citrus and floral aroma, with tart citric fruit flavours and a long hoppy fruity finish. A wonderfully refreshing beer."

Orange golden colour with big head and fast bubbles. Smell is citrus hops with some earth and an overall pleasant freshness. Hoppy fresh taste but a little watery. Sweet citrus with a little bitter. Bit dull and particularly watery. Best thing about this was the appearance.

extremely tasty beer, one of the maltiest i have ever had. the hops were there but they were blindsighted by the malt

[500ml bottle, gift from Mum & Dad - cheers!] Amber-brown with a thin, off-white head. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Smells fruity, tastes of sweet malt and fruit (apples?). A little bitterness in the finish, but not much. It’s a very pleasant, easy-drinking summer ale, but lacks depth.

500ml bottle.Poured a deep amber and orange in colour with a large off white head. Hazy with a strong bitter aroma. Faint citrus notes.

mbgrayson (806) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Pours a cloudy yellowish amber. Grassy nose, with lots of hops. I like this one alright, but for the price I will not get it again.

Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle at woody’s. It is the same bottle as in the picture, but the label doesn’t have the abv listed. Pours a clear golden amber with fair off-white foamy head. Nose and flavors of sweet corn, vanilla, grass. Nothing special here, but it is better than the scarecrow. Still too damn expensive to be worth picking up again though. It really didn’t even taste that good.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Pours a clear amber color with a finger of sticky whitish foam. Typical grassy bitter aroma. Some caramel and toffee. Taste is more toffee and caramel, fruits, wheat seems to give it a good weighty body, grassy hop finish.

Pours a lite amber color with a white forming head. Decent taste but it is that of wheat to me. Not a lot of hops. Smooth feel to the mouth. Smell of wheat malt. Good, not great.

Shane087 (26) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Pours a cloudu amber color. Nice balance between the sweet malt and bitter hops flavors. Very drinkable.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2008
500 mL bottle. Almost exactly the same as the Scarecrow ESB but slightly better. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of slight citrus hops. Very tart, cardboard taste. Overall bland and very poor. And expensive as hell.
