This is a great beer, but then maybe it's because I poured it perfectly to my glass (YES! no enormous foam and not flat!!!)
App: it pours a bronze beauty, a bit cloudy with a pretty white (not bright white, kinda dirty white) head of about 2 fingers
Smell: Smell of honey, which is a big feature to this beer, rich smell that doesn't overpower you like you get in some heavy beers. makes you wanna take a chug
Taste: the best part. This is a sweet, honey tasting beer. the taste is rich and spreads great over the mouth. No bad aftertaste but a weak flavor that I enjoyed
Mouth: great, clear but with a little carb. Good feel, I can't quite explain
Overall: very recomended for all purposes
Serving type: bottle

A delicious holiday discovery. All round nice easy drinking beer now brewed at Wychwood Brewery. All Brakspear's copper tanks were moved over to the Wychwood Brewery to maintain the same process and flavour. Apparently the yeast dates back to 1776? A unique old school ale.
Serving type: on-tap

A gift from a family friend from the UK.
A: Hazy amber liquid with a slight 1/4" cream coloured head that dissipated quickly.
S: honey, yeast and grass.
T: Honey, grass, marmalade, wood, grapefruit rind.
M: Medium viscosity and a low level of carbonation.
O: Surprisingly tasty flavour given that this ale uses Golding, Styrian Golding, Fuggle and Admiral Hops.
