Wychwood Brewing Company - Scarecrow

Purchased From: Beltway Fine Wine
Serving Type: 500 mL bottle, poured into a Nonic pint glass

This certified-organic beer from Wychwood pours a glowing orange body with a substantially-sized off-white head of thick, frothy foam. The retention is great, but the lacing is minimal. The nose is fresh and malty with light biscuity tones. There's a light English-style bitter aroma from the hops, which have a crisp and citrusy edge.

The beer's mouthfeel is satiny with an effervescent carbonation. Very clean tasting, the beer has a distinctive herbal bent with a light bittering that is both fresh and somewhat tart. Light apricots come in mid-palate providing some light sweetness and a slightly sugary feel that combat the well-balanced hop profile. On the finish, the beer is drying and slightly bitter. The finish is tight and almost cheek-pinching.

Final Verdict: B+
