Wychcraft Blonde Ale

Well, here’s a new one for you – Wychwood Brewery’s Wychcraft Blonde Ale. Straight out of Oxfordshire, England for some of that other-side-of-the-pond style.

It is, so far, one of our more modest beers, topping out at 4.5% ABV. Wychcraft, which is recommended to be served a bit of a warmer temperature, pours smoothly into a glass, producing a thin head that retreats rather quickly into the ale.

Wychcraft has a mild apple and other associated fruity tastes to it, while still maintaining a standard lighter ale taste, giving it a bit more depth to your tastebuds, but not enough to really leave a strong presence post-swallow. It looks, and tastes, a bit like a hefeweizen whose citrus flavors have been muted significantly.

The general consensus of Wychcraft seems to be that it was pleasant and enjoyable, but weak in comparison to the other brews we had tonight [the others will be posted later this week]. On its own, it was rather unimpressive, but it may be paired well with food with significant taste presence, like Indian.

Our score? A solid 7.

Until…probably tomorrow – cheers!

    I just want to say that the site looks great! And I did enjoy this particular sample. Thank you for introducing it to me (But just in case you didn’t notice, you said the same sentence twice in the first paragraph).
