look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampling right now on 7/30/14. Comes in a neat 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled glass stein.

Pours a hazy golden yellow in color with about 1/2+ finger of a white fizzy head that settles down to just the top of the glass and sides. Some spotty lacing is seen. Perfect carbonation for this style of brew. The aroma is of hops right up front with some citrus and spice. More going on with the taste that what the aroma suggests with some caramel malts, hint of toffee and sugar as well. Slight bitter finish that doesn't last too long though. Lighter to medium bodied, Overall, it was decent.

From the 500 ml. bottle. Sampled on July 3, 2014.

A beer I have had several times but somehow failed to review. The pour is a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a modest white fizzy head that fades a bit but never disappears entirely.

The aroma is incredibly sweet and malty. It has that rather unique British sweetness to it that reminds me of sweet sugar, scones (biscuit), caramel, toffee, and a vague hop note.

Light to medium body. Easy drinking.

The taste is also jolly sweet (I say) with an overwhelming caramel and toffee note. Mild to low bitterness. Smooth to the end. Bangers and mash please.

3.13/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: the standard 500mL embossed dark brown Wychwood bottle with a decent label.

Appearance: pours a slightly cloudy light yellow colour with champagne-esque fine carbonation. A small white head pops up and fizzles to a thin ring with reasonable lacing.

Aroma: a fairly light aroma of sweet malt, white sugar and a touch of caramels and citrus.

Taste: as usual for an English ale this is too demure - a very light flavour dominated mostly by the sweet malt and white sugar in this instance, without much bitterness to back it up. If anything, a bit boring.

Aftertaste: a touch of bitterness does come through in the finish with some tartness.

Mouth feel: a fairly light body with moderate carbonation. Nothing special, but then again no complaints.

Overall: another fairly average beer from Wychwood. Not offensive, but very average for the price. It's over $100 a case of an equivalent case of 24 x 330mL, for what is effectively quite a boring beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Overall a good beer with a bitter after taste. Amazing smell that was not entirely matched by the taste. A slightly refreshing beer that would pare well with a burger or steak. This beer is pretty much a solid 3/5 its not fanatastic but definitely not bad. Fairly recommended

3.53/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with notes of lemon citrus and hints of bready malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that there are notes of diacetyl and slightly less lemony flavors.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and goes down easily. It is rather flavorful for the style.
