Wychwood Fiddler's Elbow Ale

Tonight I sampled another ale from Wychwood in Witney, Oxfordshire, England. This one's called Fiddler's Elbow, and it's in the style of an English Bitter. It poured a deep gold color, with a big creamy long-lasting head that left plenty of lacing. The aroma is malt and flowery hops. Carbonation was low, and the flavor was mostly sweet malt and more floral hops. The finish was mildly bitter. I really like these English Bitters, and this was no exception. Wychwood is getting to be one of my preferred English brewers. I'll be on the lookout for more of their varieties.

Have you tried any of the ones I have reviewed?

Joe, thanks for reading my blog and for your comment. I checked out your reviews, and I have tried about 1/2 of them, and look forward to trying the others. Some we agreed on, while others, not so much. That's the best thing about beer, there's never a shortage of new ones to try, and there's a little bit of something for everyone.
