Hazy golden color with moderate activity. Slightly creamy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with moderate legs. Flavors of caramel, honey, barley, leafy hops. Lots of sugars but well balanced from some bitter grassy hops. Oily smooth almost full body with the perfect amount of crispy carbonation. Light finish, short lingering roasted malts with butterscotch and a dash of herbal spices. Slightly missing some freshness being a little flat and thick. Else the flavors are nice and the feel ends well with tongue coating honey. Overall decent quality craft.

Very little aroma. Appearance: caramel colour with scant, short-lived foam. Flavour: mild herbs, grass, malt, faint hops, slightly floral. Okay beer but nothing outstanding about it. Wouldn't rush to have again but would't refuse it at a BBQ either.

Taste: crisp, semi sour grainy notes.
Gold amber in color, slight haze. Tangy herbal almost sweet nose. Big white foamy head, Medium body, would pair well with seafood.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Deep Golden/Amber with a Thick white head that works to a thin layer fairly quickly. Good amount of lacing on the glass.

S- Faint scent of sweet malt and floral hops. Nothing overly exciting or enthusing.

T- Follows the aroma except a little more robust. Sweet caramel malt, orchard fruits, bready malt, and floral hops. Great English Pale Ale taste.

M- Medium Body with Low carbonation. Carbonation is a little to thin for my liking but I suppose it fits well into the English Pale Ale style.

O- A "Pretty Good" English Pale Ale from Wychwood but definitely not one that I would long to drink again. I didn't really pull anything out of this beer that really stood out.
