(formerly Special Cream Pale Ale.) A refreshing and creamy smooth ale that is notably full of flavour.

473ml can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and cereal malts, light metallic notes, and light, faded hops. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Not the best beer; might be an old can, but I still doubt that itís that great.

Pours amber, thin white head. Mild grain aroma. Somewhat mild taste and bitterness. Not bad.

This ubiquitous Guelph brew pours light amber with a minimal white head. The aroma is of toast, light malt, slight esters, and English hops. Taste is medium-sweet, with a medium-light body, cleaning up with a light touch of English hops. Not super exciting, but itís got balance and drinkability on itís side.

Minimal malty scent. Cloudy copper appearance. Canít taste and discernible flavours. Very light body with minimal fizz. Might be good if one wants to drink a lot of beer very quickly

473 mL can. Pours amber with a touch of white head. Aroma is mostly biscuit like malt with a hint of almondy diacetyl and a slight hop spice. Pretty uneventful. Thin and moderately carbonated. Kind of missed the mark for me.

500mL can Pours an Amber Brown with no discernible head. Fairly typical aroma, Hoppy and some caramel. Well-balanced palate with a nice long finish. An excellent beer, and only 4.5% alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is of candy, caramel but very light. Flavour is a little sweet, nutty and malty. Just a hint of something off though, sour maybe. Finish is sweet and malty.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
darker copper with a fairly thin white head of foam. Aroma of toffee, raisins, yeast and some mild herbal hops. Taste follows, but is fairly light overall. Nicely balance, and a decent pale, but nothing really mind blowing.

The Wellington County brewery has always been a sore spot with me as they have produced some wildy inconsistent beer over the years. I was hoping for a hoppy brew with this offering, but they missed the spot. First off, it pours an amber colour, unlike most English Pales. Secondly, the nose is more malt than hops. Third, the flavour profile has weak flavours. I give it a D-

473 ml can. Pours a light clear amber with a large white pillowy head. Aromas are grain, bread, and maybe a little hay. Tastes are moderately sweet malts (toffee or caramel) and very faint tinny bitterness on the back end. Very light body, almost watery, short finish.
