Poored cold in a large tulip glass. L: Beautiful pale amber. Head is rather unstable, complex lacing. S: Fresh, iron, maybe a hint of sour, some yeast in the background. T: Earthy and irony. F: Sprightly and fresh with aggressive carbonation and a dry, clean aftertaste. I like it. O: A very nicely balanced pale ale. Fresh yet powerful.

A decent ale, but nothing special here.

Bottled and purchased from budget supermarket B&Ms
guess this is no longer organic, some taste in there, corn & bitterness, had worse, especially from Wychwood

Format: the 500mL embossed brown Wychwood Brewery bottle, with a cool scarecrow on the label. They always do offer a good package.

Appearance: pours out a clear amber colour with minimal visible carbonation. A slim but creamy head slowly drops to a thick cap with decent lacing.

Aroma: hardly anything on the nose - just a touch of orchard fruits and some herbal / floral hop aromas. A bit bland.

Taste: pretty much follows the nose - light orchard fruits, light herbal and florals, with a touch of some bread malts behind.

Aftertaste: the flavours drop away fairly quickly, with just a hint of bitterness and a hint of those malts.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a lighter to moderate carbonation. Reasonable.

Overall: yet another 'quite nice but not really great' beer from Wychwood that commands AU$72 for a case of 12. The only really decent Wychwood beers I have had are King Goblin and Paddy's Tout, yet all of their range are massively expensive. I wouldn't compare them to Monteith's, since Wychwood don't have any particularly nasty beers, but I would certainly not suggest them to anyone looking for value-for-money in a brewery. I'll continue to have a single of each of their beers, but a case? Not a chance.
