WYCHWOOD FIDDLERS ELBOW 10/19/15

Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into an English nonick.

a: Cloudy copper with a half finger thick offwhite head which receded to thin surface foam and virtually no lacing.

s: Light fruit and caramel malt.

t: Same as the nose with the fruit notes coming to dominate the malt. Sweet to dry finish.

m: Light to medium, ok body and carbonation tingle.

o: A decent English pale ale, although the light fruit notes tend to defeat the malt presence. Perhaps an old bottle since there was considerable sediment and although purchased at a local store within the past month, the bottle label suggested it was originally intended for the Canadian market.

A: Hazy orange with a foamy white head.

S: Big orange presence in the nose, with citric hoppiness, strawberry, grass, and lemon.

T: A slight pleasant bitterness, with citrus nose dominating taste, along with fruity esters, berries and a touch of grass upon a malty backbone.

M: Medium-light bodied, pretty smooth.

O: Delicious. I would definitely recommend picking this up if you can find it.

Note: Recommended with other Wychwood beers (especially hobgoblin and king goblin) whilst watching Tolkien adaptations (my friends and I put on the hobbit cartoon, this was a few years ago).
