Wychcraft Blonde

This handsome brew comes from the Wychwood Brewery in Oxfordshire, England. It comes in a very snazzy 500mL bottle and contains 4.5% alcohol.  It pours a very clear, bright, brassy colour with lots of carbonation and a thick, foamy white head.
Wychcraft has a metallic aroma with a dusting of toffee sweetness. The bottle says that it's "Thrice hopped for flavour".  It's a nice, mild ale.  There isn't a lot of maltiness--the flavour is primarily bitter.  The finish is bitter and underscored with buttery toffee.

Ample hop character make this an enjoyable pint.  It is a bit on the tame side for my tastes, but this beer is likely to appeal to a wide swath of suds enthusiasts.  Not bad at all.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
