matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Had on Draft at the Independent in St. Pete.

Poured a rusty dark amber body with a fluffy cream head. The aroma and flavor brought a nicely rounded caramel grain and rather earthy hoppyness: Some fruity esters of plum, pear, and apricot with a slice of lemon. There honestly wasn’t a whole lot going on with this beer, fairly simplistic, a decent pint. The easy drink-ability and bloody hatchet tap handle is what is going to sell this beer.

Alluring chestnut brown with a touch of auburn; very little head retention. The nose is malty and earthy, plus a nice touch of black cherry and a late burst of alcohol. The alcohol impression carries through in the flavour, followed by a plush sensation of malt. Medium length. Would pair nicely when your gobblin’ a couple barbecued beef burgers.

Bottle. Nice brown color with a foamy white head. Smooth clean taste with a slight bit of bitter aftertaste. Not a big fan of the style but this one is a decent beer even if it was over priced.

clippo66 (3) - DUBBO, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2005 does not count
A moderately malty strong ale with a distinctly fruity aroma which was quite pleasant. Once poured the beer produced a creamy off-white head which did not hang around too long. The dark brown colour was clear without sediment. Flavor was moderately bitter with a dry metallic finish. Definitely taste the alcohol with the finish. Overall a good but not outstanding beer.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Mild hop aroma, but it smelled slightly adjuncty. Nice head. Almost two fingers thick. Light malt taste with a macro tasting finish. Thin in the extreme. Unlike many German beers that are all malt no hop this one lacks the deptth of taste to save it. Not outright horrible, but not quite average either.

I like this beer. It was a dark ale which still carried over some cofee tones. Smooth and malty with a hint of hops. I liked it alot but im starting to truly enjoy english beers than any other.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Another weak beer by wychwood. If I didn’t buy all their beers at once I would have stopped at the first.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Pours reddish/amber. Aroma has some banana and that is it. Flavor was smoky sweet malt. Very bland in general.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Bottled. Pours a clear deep red with a light tan head. Aroma is decent. The first sip was a disppointment. This brew lacks body. Flavor is bitter with very light malt.
