"more highly carbonated than your average pale ale...and also cleaner and crisper, which is both nice (if that’s what you’re in the mood for) or not, if you’re in the mood for a hoppier pale. pretty good overall."

Reviewed from notes (2008) A: Copperish gold... white medium thickness head.. not much lacing... S: Lots of caramel malts and citrus hops... Good amount of variety in the citrus and is well paired with the spices that come through... T: Malts hit first... more bready at first and then the caramel comes through... it gets sweeter until the hops finish off the sip... M: A bit thin.. its has some gaps on the tongue when you drink it...

12 oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers. Used a pint glass. Light carbonation. Little to no lace. Nose is malt with a biscuit type aroma. The malt flavor is balanced well with a Cascade like hop. Lighter in body. This APA isn’t going blow your hair back but… there are no major flaws and it is a respectable brew.

On tap at Patrick’s Pun for $5.99 (I know I got raped). Well balanced APA, pours orange/golden color, little aroma, nice hoppy flavor for an APA. Has that organic flavor, but tasty.

annunz123 (867) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Malt and bread in the aroma. Flavor starts the same, with some hop bitterness in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. This is a decent beer, but on the bland side.

HughConway (804) - Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Pours orange, thin white head. Hopish aroma, bit bitter hop taste, bitter finish. Not a great endorsement for organic.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Copper pour with a small and fast dissipating head. Much like the ipa the aroma on this one is very faint, especially when compared to the best beers in their respective styles. Flavor is also a little dull, a little sweetness from the malts with a hint of bittering hops at the finish. Medium body, overall a very forgettable beer.

Tessic (856) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2010
This Pale Ale poured a medium yellow colour with a nice, big, bright white head. Slightly cloudy when held up to light. To the nose there are scents of hopps, juniper/ spruce, grass and dough. Slight spice aswell. First taste was slightly sweet with a good dose of hopp flavour. Lightly bodied with flavours of spruce, spice and lemons. Finish is bitter and flavours of hopps last forever.

A touch of haze clears up as Wolavers Pale Ale loses some of its initial chill. Beautiful gold and copper hues rest lazily under a blanket of white while clumps of lace cling like clouds to the sides of my glass. Immediately I am basking in fresh grains in the form of whole grain crackers and bread kissed by honey and finished with a snap of lemon. Her creamy nose enhances the freshness of her breads and grain. In the back there is a touch of dry straw basking in the summer sun, and so I too bask in all that she has to offer. Bright and lightly sweet, honey flitters across my tastebuds wrapped in cereal grains, loaves of whole grain bread, and lifted up by lemon bitterness in the middle. Her soft mouthfeel is wonderfully soothing and with each quaff I am right back in the thick of soft whole grain breads, fields of gold, and lemon fresh highlights. A pleasant change from the typically hoppy American pale ales, I understand now the meaning behind the common saying ‘liquid bread’.

Delightful, refreshing, and invigorating. Almost a meal unto herself, I thoroughly enjoyed the classic bready lines of the Wolavers Pale Ale. As with all things fresh and organic, make sure to drink yours sooner than later, not that I imagine such a dilemma to be any problem. I know it wasn’t for me.

Golden in color with a pleasant earthy aroma. Hoppy aftertaste. Would drink this organic pale ale again.
