rederic (2911) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2005
500ml can, bright honey-golden color, with rocky foamy white head, with good lacing, pale malt, sweet maltiness, soft hoppy nose follows through on a medium-bodied palate with caramel malt, toasty grains in a shy bitter hops finish.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2005
2005 can at the Mondial, 6/4/05. Clear golden-straw color, large bubbles and a moderate amount of bubbly white head, poor retention, no lacing. Aroma of soft grassy hops, no bitterness. Touches of sweet sugary malt, light hay and biscuits, cornbread. Flavor has a plasticy edge to it, kind of like pine-sol on vinyl tiles, and then some cheap sugary notes, followed by a drying effect from hops, I guess. Little bit of corniness throughout, with a slightly metallic finish and a medium-light body, though not terribly watery. Just rather stale and bland for the most part. Moderate carbonation is not overly sharp.

1/2 liter can...finally got to the Chas. Wells after being scared off by the big 2 liter plastic pop bottles they market this beer in. Poured a nice pleasant gold color, lasting white frothy cap that laces well. Well carbonated. Aromas are well pronounced and also pleasant: sweet caramel biscuit malts over some citrusy hops. Fair malty spine to this ...great malt departure balanced off well with the citrus-pine hops...moderate clean finish....medium bodied....refreshing,...heck you can’t even taste the maze in it.... a well made malty utility lager with a Brit touch to it in the hopping...not great but good standard fare. At the price I’d much rather buy this than the hordes of commie welfare lagers on LCBO shelves.

pintbypint (2592) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2005
500ml can. Light gold pour, very large creamy thick head. Light floral hops in aroma, quite pleasant. Also some honeyish malt. Pretty stagnant body, very low carbonation, light mouthfeel. Some malt detectable, and adjunct (corn), trace of hops.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2005
Not much to add here. I like other Wells products, but this one was a dim memory as soon as it was finished.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2005
Mild citrus hoppy corn aroma. Clear golden body is topped by lasting cover of white head that leaves some lacing. Mild but sweet malts with light spicy and mildly floral hop flavour and a gentle balancing bitterness. Light body but not watery with fair carbonation. Can (Rahman - Nov. 2004).

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2005
500 ml can. I notice on the can that corn is listed in the ingredients, that doesn’t look good at all ... Pours a pale gold color with a medium diminishing white head, fair lacing. Mild tangy, citrusy aroma with malt and hops. Boring flavor of malt and hops, mild bitter finish. Light to medium body, watery texture. Boring lager, no interest at all.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2004
Ordinary lager with ordinary golden color. Ordinary head. Ordinary combination of malt and hops. Not bad with an apetizer or an introductory beer but a bit boring to drink.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2004
Canned - 500ml. Nice golden body topped with a decent bubbly head. Average malty/hoppy aroma and flavor with some bready notes. There is absolutely nothing special to say about that average and very common macrolager.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Aurelius (4117) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Average macro lager smell. A fairly crisp but otherwise indistinct brew. Finish is long and hop-tangy. Boring label.
