CanCrusher (1031) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle 0,50L. Clear orange color with small, frothy, off-white head, that dissipate in a minute. Malty aroma with some tea notes, also herbal and grassy. Taste starts light bitter, become light sour for a moment with some light, fruity notes and finish light bitter. Lighter on body, watery and bored.

AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a foamy off white head and has a slightly dull dark copper appearance. Lacing is good. Mild grainy and bready malt aromas with spiced hops. Has earthy and herbal type hop flavours, somewhat sweet and has a slight bitterness. Notes of toffee and nuts as well. Pretty faint citrus notes. Mouthfeel is full bodied with fairly weak carbonation but has a nice mouthwarming sensation. Not too bad, easy drinking but not the best from Wychwood.

Towey1989 (2224) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of toffee, bready malts, fruit and slight spicy hops. Taste of light caramel, bready malts, some fruit, slight grass and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, spicy, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Surprisingly hoppy but quite bland and watery. A dry, somewhat refreshing bitter overall. Itís ok.

UXO (1688) - CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: nutty, caramel malt, grassy, light fruit. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter, light metallic. (5/10) Medium body tending slightly watery, moderate-low carbonation, sweetish short duration mildly bitter finish. (2/5) Another less-than-impressive Wychwood offering. A bit sweet and a bit watery, with a finish that isnít so much bitter as astringent, especially as the initial sweetness fades. An unexciting interpretation of an unexciting style. (10/20)
