KingofCastle (205) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2006
500 mL can: Love the way these Wellís beers come in 2L pop bottles at the Beer Store, strange. Basically, this is better than you would think: nice lager for a British beer, and stands out a bit from the typical corn macro brew in North America. HogtownHarry right again here: pleasant bite due to the above average hops (probably those Goldings hops softened by Challenger ones used in Bombardier Ale, you can smell it right away, very distinct). Nice lager to try on a mild day with some sticky comfort food. Deep golden colour, thin white head, decent lacing.

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2006
500 mL bottle. Yellow with an orange tint. Very thin film of head. Sharp aroma with citrus and grain. Donít like the taste. Seems stale or something. Definitely corn. Slightly metallic finish, with a hint of bitterness after itís gone.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2006
Small creamy white head; clear yellow body. Very, very faint fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, acidic malts with harmonic grassy hops. Velvety mouthfeel. Dry, bitter, grassy aftertaste. Good session beer. (0.5l on tap.)

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
Can from LCBO. Golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Muted grassy aroma with very mild grains and floral notes. Moderate bitterness, slightly floral grains over muted malt. Average palate. Dull but mostly inoffensive.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Can (500ml). Poured vaguely reddish clear gold with an average pillowy white head. Aroma is lightly skunky but intriguingly strong with hops, active and somewhat piney - not too sweet, almost gingery. Taste is less hoppy, but not bad - simple, a little carbonated, with a pleasant bite to it. I donít mind this one.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2005
Medium-gold with a touch of brown. The aroma hints at a refreshing brew, with lager-standards of hops and sugar, and some grain and florals. Palate is fairly thin, and the flavour lacks character, with a dominating watery feel and a slightly bitter, slightly malty aftertaste. Quite average, and could use a bit more of somethingÖanything.

Nothing too exotic here. Pretty bland in fact. I guess you could say itís refreshing on a hot summer night.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Iím suprised I never rated this one, I drink it all the time. Main reason for purchas, itís realy hot and humid, cold pale lager is realy refreshing in said weather, wells is realy cheap {the only beer cheeper is malt liquor} and wells is much higher quality than all other beers in itís price range, and most of the normal priced macros as well. pours a straw yellow, high levels of small bubbles, white whispy head that has clearly artifical staying power all the way through the glass, like a small mound of shaving cream, and it laces all the way down, but once again, itís clearly artificial. Aroma is corn starch, mild golden malt, aluminum, dried grass and biscut crumbs. Taste is corn syrop, mild malt, very dry bitter hops and grassy hop. Undertones metalic, wild herb, corn starch, and white shugar. Aftertaste is hoppy, dry and sweet steamed corn. Final taste is dry. Great lager, but the best a pale lager can be is only "decently refreshing" anyways. DRINK MORE ALE. Cheers

500 ml can from the LCBO. Strange to see that almost all of the ratings for this beer are from Canada, and there are none at all in the UK. Are you Brits sending this to us as a joke, and keeping all the good stuff to yourself? It looks OK in the glass - clear golden colour with a reddish tinge and a tight white head. But both the aroma and flavour are average at best. They both have the stale malt and canned corn notes that I associate with cheap lagers, although to be fair, there is a nice toasty/biscuity quality as well, and some mild hops in the finish that are undeniably English in style. But in general, this is a sub-standard lager that isnít worth much consideration.
