Picked up in Morrisons Tewksbury (about a week or two back) Golden coloured hoppy bitter with nice lingering finish, not that exciting but a fine enough beer.

Bottle with Scarecrow Ale label. I was hopping to catch this brew at Beer on the Pier in Chicago as several other Wychwood brews were being offered. One of the stranger aroma experiences I’ve had with a beer as it changed considerably each of the 1st few times I smelled it. Started sour and then settled into an ESB-like aroma, but without as much bitterness, as say a Fullers ESB. I’m actually dumbfounded by the low ratings. Must be a lot of Americans who don’t have a palate for subtle English brews. Perhaps they improved the brew, and the Rating Avgs by Month show a bit of a resurgence since Sept. ’04. Or it could be a result of a lot of the clear bottles being lightstruck. Why do brewers continue to put beer in these bottles? I love the etched witches on the bottles and the labels are attractive as well, but these would still be great on, say a green bottle. yngwie (17262) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2006
Bottled. Clear, golden with a nice, dense, off-white head. Fruity and light hoppy aroma. Quite pleasant, with some citrus notes. Thin to medium body with a flavors of piney hops, pale malt and some fruity notes. Low on carbonation, quite creamy, but feels quite good. Nice, but not a killer.

Not bad, I guess. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma bolstered by malt. Flavor is subtle malt with a hop presence and bitter finish. Not bad. Not great. An ok beer. KnutAlbert (6797) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2006
An OK bitter combining malty sweetness with a bitter hoppy finish. No complex aromas to lift this to a high rating, but far better for quenching your thirst than 95% of all lagers! decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2006
A metalic aroma and flavor to this beer. A weak watery palate with an off bitter flavor. If there is malt here I sure can’t identify it. Not much. If the beer was as good as the bottle and label looked it would be killer but it’s not.
