651: Wychwood | Dry Neck

20200729_184705The brewery: “The Wychwood Brewery is tucked away behind the main street of the market town of Witney, in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Witney is historically famous for its 3 Bs; bread, blankets and of course beer. Brewing in Witney dates back to 1811 and Wychwood Brewery is sited at the Old Eagle Maltings, built more than 150 years ago when barley was malted for the town's brewery.”

The beer: “The perfect beer to quench the driest of throats. Malts of the palest hue combined with the magic of Mosaic hops create refreshing fruity aromas and thirst-quenching flavours of sweet citrus and dark berry fruits.”

Oddly, given the description, I enjoyed this, But it was hot, I was thirsty and the beer was a little colder than usual. Not a cosy fireside ale for me but it worked well outdoors on a campsite on a warm summers’ afternoon. 4.0% A.B.V.
