3.2/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

P: 500 ml bottle, now dark which seems to be a change from the clear bottle in the photo. Nice label as all Wychwood's seem to have. Looks good in the bottle collection.

A: Dark orange and hazy, not thin head

S: Slight citrus, not a lot in the nose

T: Seems a bit watery, not much sweetness, some citrus hop flavor and tea in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Thin, watery. I'm not getting a lot of malt.

D: I could drink this all night, not because it tastes so good, but it does go down pretty easily, probably because it seems so thin.

Notes: Maybe I've been hitting the double IPA and Russ. Imp. Stouts too much, but this just seems really thin and watery. Despite how the review sounds however, this isn't a bad beer, just nothing really special.

4.29/5  rDev +18.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy orange with a foamy white head.

S: Big orange presence in the nose, with citric hoppiness, strawberry, grass, and lemon.

T: A slight pleasant bitterness, with citrus nose dominating taste, along with fruity esters, berries and a touch of grass upon a malty backbone.

M: Medium-light bodied, pretty smooth.

O: Delicious. I would definitely recommend picking this up if you can find it.

Note: Recommended with other Wychwood beers (especially hobgoblin and king goblin) whilst watching Tolkien adaptations (my friends and I put on the hobbit cartoon, this was a few years ago).

4.7/5  rDev +29.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance - Pours a very dark amber/copper color with almost no head. Leaves a nice, creamy lacing behind.

Smell - Sweet, earthy, and bitter.

Taste - Has a subtle sweetness, with citrus and orange zest. It's very earthy, with bready malts, and has a nice, light bitterness in the finish. Has somewhat of a floral flavor too.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with low carbonation.

Overall - This is one of the best pale ales I've ever tried. Simple and delicious.
