Wold Top Headland Red

2013-01-20 17.35.38

Just for once a red beer that really is a red beer!  Wold Top’s Headland Red is a deep ruby colour with a thin head.  The nose is light and fragrant – slightly floral maybe – and the flavour is mild rather than bitter.  This 4.3% ABV ale is not as malty as the bottle suggests, but hash a pleasant lasting hoppyness.  The bottle also says that it’s the ale to use for the best beef in beer:  I wouldn’t know about that, but it has a pleasant warming glow that has just reached my ears! Very nice indeed at the end of a cold winter’s day.

Wychwood Goliath

2013-01-12 18.18.08

Wychwood Goliath is a copper-coloured bitter with an ABV of 4.2%, and a head that definitely lasts well.  It has a light nose smelling slightly of toast and ginger, and I really like honest, and slightly old-fashioned taste of a bitter that endures well, before coming to a slightly sweeter finish.  This is not a beer that pretends to be something that it’s not, and I could quite happily drink this all evening!
