2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can. Pours a light copper with small creamy yellow head. Aroma of hops, some nuts, a little bready, some caramel, very nice. Grassy taste, light and grainy, citrus, dry. Nothing too complex. Expected a little more after such a tasty nose. Specific strong spring water taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 473ml can. Poured into flute glass producing a flamboyant white head. Goes into great lace. Smells sweetly fruity. This is a very balanced brew with an ultra smooth body. Goes gown way too easy! Somewhat on the softer side - could use more carbonation. Nice golden peach colour (Lovibond 11). Tastes neither sweet nor bitter but wonderfully full-flavoured, moreso on the first few swigs. Settled down into a quick satisfying ale after that.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
April 20 2012. 473ml can pours clear deep amber with 1inch soapy white head that sinks to tight cap. Nice lacing from such a thin head and it lasts to the end. Aroma of malt, citrus and sweet bread. Highly carbonated. Tastes sweet and malt bread with hint of hops and spice in aftertaste. Not very strong, but flavourful. Carbonation gives a fuzzy palate that holds the hops afterwards. A pleasant ale that is easy to drink and full of flavour.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unremarkable. Youíve got the biscuits, but overall I think the flavouring is too light, too watery... and sorry, but tastes a little stale. Maybe it was the can I drank it from. Will try again and if itís better Iíll rerate it. If youíve got a choice, go for the bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated June 2004. This beer is now called "Wellington Special Pale Ale" (formerly Special Cream Pale Ale). Wellington has just change their labels... but this pale ale is still creamy. Beautiful amber colour, itís nice foamy head is long lasting (especially for this type of style). Good amount of lacing. Aromas of caramel and hops. Full body flavour with mild bitterness, and a smooth finish. Very tight small bubble carbonation. Still, a creamy thin head is left at the end. Great 4.5% ABV pale ale.

Can. Clear brownish amber. Good Aroma of English hops and malts. Smooth caramel taste balanced out by English hops. A perfectly good English-style pale ale, which reminds me a bit of Fullerís (London Pride, specifically).

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap at the Ottawa wine and food show. rather dissapointing especially coming from a "craft brewer" excessively carbonated clouded both the palate and aroma. the stereotypical pale ale flavours lingered in the background but to be honest I was so put off by the fizzy nature of my drink I would have needed a lot of convincing to see beyond it.

an utter failure in the pale ale dept. in fact the only thing it got right was that like any pale ale its not very pale, but i wont give it ratings based on colour alone

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a tall creamy head. The head mostly remains and leaves a fair bit of fine lace on the glass. On the nose, there are notes of honey and grain, along with flowers and a hint of pale fruit. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with a slight bitterness emerging towards the end. There are notes of honey and grain balanced with subtle hops. On the palate, it is light in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a fairly bland light ale. 2011-10-08
