eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in an ordinary glass at the Coimbra’s shopping mall. A: Pours a amber clear color with a medium sized white head. Few lacings left S: Sweet malts are a must, sweet caramel, a bit fruity followed by a mild smell of Belgium yeasts (reminds a Dubbel) T: Sweet. Sweet malts and caramel. Some fruit esters. Actually, it tastes like a Red Lager. The Abadia can only be justified by the biscuity and "Belgium like" yeasts. M: Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Dry finish. O: Well, not that bad for a Portuguese beer I would say. No offense, just a reality [ BA Review @ 7/3/2011 ]

Chelmsford Winter Fest. Presented as ’Wolf Ale. Clear amber beer. Good balance of toffee malt and some flat orange hop. Dry finish. Completely inoffensive but boring!

sm89walt (1766) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2010
Cask - The Brewery Tap/The Shed, Wroxham (as Wolf Ale). Poured a dark, ruddy chestnut colour with a puffy medium-sized white head. Orange/tangerine aromas with sweet floral notes. Some berry and mid fruits with a goodish lemony tang coming through and nice bitter bite. Soft palate texture, just on the lighter side of medium in body.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2009
Pre-match pint as ’Wolf Ale’, The Bell, Banbury. Clear chestnut speckled with lace. Nutbowl and chocolate aroma, some casky softness, light Bank’s-type ferny hop, Beef Monster Munch, creaminess, nuts...Slight lemony hop and cinder toffee in the background. Initially felt a bit empty on top of the Hooky stuff, but won both me and Pops MacDrunkeasy over with each sip. Enjoyably caramelly BB with gentle hop undercurrents.
