UPDATED: NOV 10, 2007 500 ml Bottle - 11/10/07 Update - This time not so skunky. Very low carbonation. Aroma is of roasted malts with some spicy hops. Flavor is also roasty with a mild bitterness from the spicy hops. Much better this time. Original Rating - Poured a dark brown in color with a thin whit head. Very skunky!! Some maltiness in the flavor, but not good at all! Disappointing!!!!! JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2006
The smell has a salty malty aroma to it. It has this somewhat dry malty flavor with an herby clover undertone to it which appears when it goes down the throat. There is a somewhat metallic cover to this beer but it lacks the sweetness one can get from a brew like Speckled Hen which seems to be of the same style. The grassiness seems to bring this one down a bit. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Purple and brown color. Smell of malt hops, prunes and alcohol. Tastes very sour. Sour fruit, malt some hops and a rubber bitterness. agl108 (1293) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2006
16.9 oz can. Pours mahogany with thin white head that left a little bit of lace. Sweet, caramel, malty, nutty flavor. Too sweet for me. Best thing about this beer is the scary ass goblin on the can. Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Dark brown pour. Small head that left in a hurry. Faint, Sweet aroma - maltly, fruity. Smooth malt flavor with not a whole lot to grab a hold of.

bottle. Red-brown with thin head. Medium body with dry, bitter finish, but rounded out with some deep flavours of fruit & chocolate. full-bodied, well-balanced, chocolate toffee malt, moderate bitterness, distinctive fruity character. jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Pretty standard english ale. Similar to boddingtons or old speckled hen. A little thinner on the palate than expected, and a little bit metalliic overall. Decent, but not great, a bit pricy too. lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2006
On tap. With a tagline like "What’s the matter lagerboy, afraid you might taste something?" you shouldn’t make a beer like this.. So average... Seriously, what’s wrong with the guys at Wychwood? Seems to me like they’re only reaching out for the pre-adolescent, role-playing sci-fi geek segment of the market vitamine (35) - USA - SEP 8, 2006

Can, 50 cl. Fine smell of malt, fruity taste and aroma from malt and hops. A bit on the sweet side for me, so not top marks.
