look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Brown 500ml bottle, Best before Jan 2008, drank in Feb 2007.

Tangerine orange body with a small white head which turns to lace very swiftly, on each of the three pours into my Hannan Alt tumbler.

The bootle claims it is thriced hopped, well I could hardly smell any, citrusy lemon, floral aroma is all I could find.

Not like a true bitter in my opinion, too flowery/lemony for me. It says a blonde beer on the label, well its not a true blonde either.

Fizzy beer really, slight retention of citrus flavours, otherwise nothing.

Can't decide if I will try this beer again, I will if I see it in cask form, but not from a bottle.

3.23/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: sparkly gold, great clarity, lots of bubbles, thick layer of pure white spongey foam, specks of lace

Aroma: fresh and flowery, slightly wheaty

Flavor: quite dry malt balance; starts out grainy and slightly bready then dries out completely as an herbal bitterness comes in; finishes dry with a tart, bitter aftertaste

Mouthfeel: medium-light body, pert carbonation, crisp, slight astringency

Other comments: It could have been an interesting English blonde, but it just doesn't have enough pizazz to push it over the edge to memorability.

Coming in a clear, long-neck, 660ml bottle, it bears a BBE date of 14 Apr 06. The colour is dark-golden, and the beer pours a rocky milky-white head which lasts pretty well...low carbonation for a bottled beer, though. On nose it has sweetish, almost vanilla-like note and lemon-cake like malts. On palate, dryish and very light lemony hoppy taste dominates, with faint trace of malts and intensively dryish bitterness in the finish. The aftertaste is as refreshingly hoppy as not very lingering. The overall mouthfeel is lively but also overly flat in the aftertaste. It is a light-bodied summer ale which is decent enough but nothing extremely remarkable.

Designed to be in direct contrast to the Black Wych winter stout, White Wych comes in a 660ml colourless bottle and is labelled as a 'summer ale'.

Pours a mid golden amber colour with a big white head that lasts pretty well for a bottled beer.

The aroma is hoppy an quite citrussy, lemons. Otherwise pretty nondescript.

The taste is very hoppy also, with lemons, oranges, and a slight spicy character. Little else to note.

Mouthfeel is a little too carbonated, drinkability is good.

This beer is pleasant if unremarkable, and although a nice beer, I feel that Goliath, by Wychwood also, fits the contrast better.
