With this characterful ale, Wellington bids farewell to the homeless rogue who was always welcome on its street corners. Like the man himself, the grain is lightly smoked. Like the sun he worshipped, it radiates a warming golden glow. For the final and most personal touch, Munich Malt has been added for that unmistakable glimpse of nuts.
Beer 1/4 of Clemenger’s Wellington in a Pint 2012
TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, - DEC 3, 2012
3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. That nuttiness and smokiness combine well, creating a nuance beer - moreish, and best of all, very sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
From memory, restrained aroma (unlike its namesake) in a clear golden pour (not unlike the gutter next to him). Interesting hints of smoke and nuts was as advertised - you got what you saw.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright straw colour with big white head. Citrus aroma, smokey mouthfeel with mild bitterness.
ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 7, 2012
2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden with a pillowy head which quickly completely disappears. Very subtle aromas, yeast, honey, hay and nuts. Taste is quite straightforward and a little bland. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit lively. A subtle bitterness in the finish. A bit ordinary.
