500ml bottle poured into tulip 1/4/13

A hazy light copper with bubbles popping up from everywhere and they feed a tight finger of foam that stick around long enough to leave 3 rings of lace followed by some random patches

S some faint caramel and floral hops with a little bread, quite faint without a whole lot going on

T stronger then the nose with some fruity aspects, and something earthy to go along with the caramels and faint hops, a small step forward from the nose

M more body then I'd guess form a low booze beer and a little creamy from the bubbles, fairly clean aftertaste

O would make a decent summer swiller, respectable but nothing spectacular

I like the sweet malts but could use just a little something, I suppose its a session beer and as such its decent

cool new beer as part of the Wychwood 4 pack. The bottle is brown not clear like the thumbnail above thank god. I like the fact it is 4.2% ABV thought the name suggests a bigger beer. the beer pours a nice autumnal gold with a slight nose. the taste is nutty and quite dry on the finish . Not a lot of complexity unlike Scarecrow or Wychcraft . the beer is certainly very drinkable but I was hoping for a little more. I did like the finish which was rounded yet autstere at the same time. pretty good offering but not my fave Wychwood beer.
