RichardGretton (4784) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Dark bronze/brown beer with a fairly strong head. The aroma is malty and smoothly roasted, and the flavour is well roasted and bitter with vinous qualities. Overall a nice well flavoured mildly roasted and quite bitter beer.

coldbrewky (1731) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle via beer world. Pours a crisp deep copper with a nice thick tan head. Pinpoint lacing encompasses the entire glass, no quaff rings. Moderate body (light undulation)with malt dominating. Some light butter at finish, Can someone snopes the viability of only brewing on the moons. While I am aware of the increase in soil respiration during differing moon phases, this seems to be no way to run a brewery. Ride yer fekkin brooms.

Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Copper colour with a mediumsized foamy beige head. Aroma is crystal and bready malts along with rather strong grassy and floral bitterness. Also has some slight caramel and dark dry fruits. Flavour is raisins, dark dry fruits, quite strong on the malty side as well as rather bitter towards the finish.

Jonte (1496) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle. Reddish copper colour with a beige head. Malty, toffee, caramel, dark fruits, a touch of alcohol, sweet but still with a dry finish and some bitterness. Better than expected from Wychwood.

500ml bottle from Royal Liquors poured into a Chimay glass. Pours a very light brown/dark red color with a good bit of frothy off-white head. Aroma is of sweet malt. Caramel and fermented citrus fruits. Slight hop spicyness is hiding in there too. Taste is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Slight caramel taste along with a stronger taste of fruit. Medium bodied with a thick sticky texture, fizzy carbonation and a average length finish. Overall, its not too bad. Nothing I would search out again but at 4 bucks a bottle it is drinkable.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Coppery Amber pour with a full frothy offwhite head. Aroma is bready malt, nutty, with some dried fruits, a touch of booziness. Flavor is more bready, luscious maltiness. Too much alcohol throughout though, as it takes away from pleasant malty richness. Finish is clean, and relatively dry.

JoeMcPhee (9547) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2011
Deep amber pour tending to brown with a thick creamy white head. The aroma is quite fruity with a lot of yeast-derived esters along with a little bit of light hop spiciness. The beer feels higher in ABV than 6.6, but it’s still decently balanced. Nice balance of hoppiness and yeast along with a soft malt derived sweetness. There is a little bit of UK crystal malt sweetness through the middle that lends a sort of stewed fruit character to the finished beer. It’s actually pretty solid stuff.

robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
Typical wychwood aroma, light hops, caramel malts, and some sweet bread, and fruits. Woody notes, light mouthfeel, booze is a little bit there in the finish. Semi dry, and a good carb. finish is a little hoppy, with some more typical mineraly wychwood malts. Not bad, not great.
