nice, creamy concoction from Wychwood Brewery, didn't care
for the skunked Scarecrow Ale but it was a nice bottle. This
dark brownish type ale has a nice smooth fruity edge to it that
I like, it warmed nice. Has a great head that lasts. If you're looking
for something different during these cooler October days this
is nice and smooth, malty and delicious. I also enjoyed another
English Ale (Pendels Witches Brew) Halloween themes going
on here, another treat, delicious and
different.

A - A deep ruby red and light brown in appearance. Starts with a two centimeter head that shrinks to foam around the edges of the glass.

S - Smells of malts, apple, spiciness, earthy hops, there is also a very noticeable solvent type aroma as well.

T - Predominantly the malts, spice, a rich earthiness, chocolate, and some zesty notes as well. A nice bite from the hops pulls through, though it not overdone in the least.

MF - Mild carbonation that doesn't take away from the flavours, luscious and rich body overall.

O - A very decent brew, taste and mf combine for a solid drinkability.
