Beer Wednesday! Wychwood Scarecrow
Happy Beer Wednesday, and happy Thanksgiving! I went looking for something with traditional Thanksgiving flavors and simple, strong harvest overtones. I did want to avoid pumpkin beers, in no small part because I still have a bottle of PumKing waiting patiently for Thanksgiving dinner and our Field Roast stuffed roast en croute.
What I strolled across was Wychwood’s Scarecrow Golden Pale Ale. At first, the beer didn’t seem to want to develop a head, but the bubbles climbed up to the top of the glass in time. The head was a little thin, and the nose was simple, without a whole lot of complexity.
The beer itself is straightforward and very drinkable, but it left a bit to be desired in its flavor. The beer is a bit thin in flavor, despite having a very clean finish. Now, I don’t drink these beers with the hope of getting drunk, but I do like to know that I’m drinking a beer, and often I get that right away. Not this time.
I’ll have pictures once the Blonde and I get back from visiting family, so Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for your patience!
