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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

From notes:

Appearance: more of an amber colour than the claimed ruby; good lasting head; very slight haze

Aroma: malty and sweet, caramel

Taste & Mouthfeel: very smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel; on the sweet side with minimal bitterness or hops despite the "hefty wack" of hops advertised; lacking depth, and flavour dissipates quickly

Overall: a lackluster beer that definitely doesn't live up to it's name

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass. not sure about this, but my bottle has 4.2%ABV

A- Pours a clear golden amber, with about 1.5cm of head that quickly subsides to a whisper. looks pretty good, more like an english bitter though.

S- a bit of toffee and caramel malts, with a touch of citrus. very pleasant, but not hugely flavourful.

T- Again a bunch of toffee and caramel malts up front, with a citrusy hoppiness, and a nice refreshing bitterness. much like the smell, very pleasant without being hugely flavourful.

m- lighter to mid bodied, bitterness fills the back of the mouth, and it has a surprising length of flavour. very drinkable.

O- a pretty sound bitter, i enjoyed it and would drink it again on a warm day.
