"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."

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle, Co-op. Copper, modest layer of beige head. Melon hops, a bit of light caramel. Melony blackberry flavor, some toasty malt. Light body, clean citrus finish. Not particularily noteworthy, but pleasant and refreshing.

berkshirejohn (6370) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2007
500ml bottle from Aldi. Deep gold with an off-white head; rich fruity aroma; creamy, sweet and fruity, with a good rounded bitterness. An excellent session bitter.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
(Bottled) Poured with dense head. Copper and slightly hazy. Appears carbonated, but not in the mouth. Very little scent, but some sweet hop in there. Watery. Dry end but not particularly bitter, nor sweet. Thick mouthfeel. Hint of malt in the back of the mouth, but that’s all. Disappointing and bland.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
Pours a pale copper with a thin white head and some lacing with a slight aroma of honey. Tastes slightly of wheat, plenty of corn, ethanol. Milky body with a warm finish and good carbonation. Thin and weak, not something I’d try again.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Bold beige foamed head. Golden in colour. Hoppy nose with citrus and cream notes. Faint carbonation. Very hoppy taste -Styrian - but quite simple. Some maltiness with a pleasant moderate dry finish. A respectable if not ’good’ ale.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2007
500ml bottle. Amber with a cream coloured head. Aroma and flavour are nothing too special. Creamy palate. Another unimpressive beer from Wychwood.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light golden in color with a very carbonated head. The body is light yet full of flavor. There is a nice wheat flavor balanced by a touch of spice. The aroma is a sweet citrus. Definitely a good session beer for the summer.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - AUG 3, 2007
Fruity & floral nose of some sulpher & grass, pure berries and alcohol after brew warms and breathes a bit. The beer pours a sparkling gold. The nice cascade resolves into a mostly lasting stiff white creamy head with good lace. The start is balanced, the middle is sweet & peppery, the moderate acidity leads to a bready finish with earthy tones. The medium body is creamy and lively. The finish feels dry. A session offering to be sure.

Embrouille (2844) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Bottled 50cl. It pours an amber beer with a whitish head. The aroma is of hops, cheese and caramel. Earthy and rather unenjoyable. An interesting touch of mango. Some cheese in the taste. Citric and musty with hints of wild strawberries. Cloying and quite watery. Decent bitterness. Some unenjoyable elements to this beer. A faint finish of hops. Nothing special...

rocbyter (2112) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Aroma of apples. Reminds me of an pale ale. Clear orange color with a medium white head, fizzy. Smooth start finishing with a candy corn like sweetness. Mildly creamy.
