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

tompete (213) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
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 (381) - 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-

BreWedge (316) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
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.

Pours a nice rich nutty brown with little to no head. Slight caramel aroma and aftertaste. Smooth and flavourful.

Nothing good or bad about this beer - taste is almost neutral. Light biscuits with a faint hop taste in the finish. Not a bad summer beer but rather uninteresting.

473ml can from LCBO. Not bad, but a little on the sweet side for me... I prefer Welly's light beer, actually, Arkell Best Bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden with a thin lace. Malt with slight hop aroma. Malty flavour. Slight bitterness.

Some biscuit and cereal, some light fruit. Lively carbonation, tastes are light sweet with some light bitterness to the finish. Decent enough quaffer.
