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).

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.
