Named so for the area in which the beer is made. Hell Bay is the body of water also known as Cherry Hill Beach. This beer is a tribute to English style ales. It has a distinct malty, toasted flavour with a medium body. This beer showcases a combination of five carfefully selected malts.

Near brown. Aroma is mostly a mild malt aroma. Flavour is light but unoffensive Nothing particularly wrong, just nothing exciting.

chinchill (4272) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2016
On tap In Shelburne, NS. A solid but somewhat uninspired ale. Mild flavor with spicy and faintly earthy hops plus dark bread notes from the grains.Flavor strengthens a bit with warming. Medium body and lightly prickly carbonation.

Metalchopz (3078) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Purchased at NSLC on my trip to Nova Scotia. Pours a slight hazed amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and some creamy lace. Aromas of biscuit, caramel malts and floral hops that give out hints of apples. The taste is woody with some grassy hops in the finish. Decent dry end to it. Some nutty notes overall. Not a bad brew, but seems a bit off (not as well-balanced).

Pours a murky brownish amber with a tiny head. Aroma is of biscuit, caramel, and raisin. Tastes of caramel, toffee, brown bread, and a touch of skunk. Has a medium body with average carbonation and a little sour in the aftertaste.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
A rather nice beer from a new brewery for me. Full points for looks, a handsome rich copper, clean and with a creamy, large off-white head. Lots of caramel and biscuit from the nose as well as earthy, herbal English-style hops. The taste is much the same, some sweetness with a bitter finish in this slightly chewy, mid-soft carbonated ale. Tasty.

AgentAle (1529) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
Aroma is caramel, sweet malts and hoppiness. Taste is a sweet creaminess and pleasant maltiness which is fairly well balanced with the hoppy bitterness that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a hazy orange /copper with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Poured from bottle. Aroma has hints of caramel and toast. Appearance is a slightly cloudy amber. Medium bitter in taste. Medium body and oily texture. A nice English ale.
