COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Release date: February 11th 2012 Wellington Brewery is proud to present a beer that bridges the gap between tradition and trend, Terrestrial India Brown Ale. This beer has the rich malt complexity of an English brown ale with layers of roasted caramel and earthy characteristics. Terrestrial is more than a traditional brown ale, it has been hopped in the style of an American Cascadian pale ale. Amarillo and Sorachi Ace hops dance on the nose while being accompanied by the refreshing citrus bitterness of infused cascade whole leaf hops. This beer will allow your senses to soar and explore while being grounded to terra firma.

Arcanor (385) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2017
355ml bottle no date. Pour dark brown with some copper notes, rich creamy off-white foam. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and brown sugar. No hops, maybe of its age ? Taste is light on the roasted malt, residual sugar is not overdose. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and light bitter. Medium sweet roasted finish.

Got this one part of the holiday 4-pack. This brown ale was a bit disappointing, nothing worth noting.

ChadPoole (443) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2017
Pours dark brown with an off white head. Roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt, carmel and nuts flavours with a good hop bitter kick. Interesting combo that works very well. Last one of the Welly Re-Booted 4 pack. Great pack of beers.

Raistlin (382) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
Pours brown colour with average head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. Burnt malt and earthy aroma with a citrus. It has nice smooth average body. Flavour is slightly sweet caramel and burnt malt, little bitterness at the end, but not as much as other brown ales. Well balanced.

cfrancis (3345) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2017
Pours dark brown with a moderate brown foamy top. Aroma is nutty, caramel and a touch of toasted malt. Taste is moderate body, nice mouthfeel, slightly creamy, nutty with a little toast and a slight sweetness of toffee. Nice citrus hop bitterness although most of the hop flavours are overshadowed by the nutty.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2017
Bottled. Dark body, big light brown head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee. The taste is thick, with licorice and toffee.

Strangebrewer (1272) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2017
bottle. Poured clear dark ruby with a large tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Tettering on a medium-full body, pricky carbonation, tart lingering finish. Flavour of roasted malt, smokey and tart was big citrusy hop note.

Freaky_tiki (1183) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2017
4-pack mixer from beer store. Deep wood furniture brown with a thin layer of dark foam. Nice clash of rich rye meets pale ale style hops. The brown ale part is a little watery & uninspired but I still kind of dig this. Good midweek beer.

Bottle, Mulmur, ON via LCBO. Deep brown, foamy head. Biter chocolate caramel aroma. Slight metallic flavour. Brown sugar. Chocolate and balancing hops at end.

HippyHop (620) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
Surprised to see this stuff getting so little love. Beautiful, dark mahogany colour - I want a desk and leather armchair to match. Citrus/pine hops on the nose, with an earthy, nutty caramel malt backdrop. Taste is nutty and fruity, lots of fragrant hops, and a finish thats just the right amount of bitter for the style (IMHO). Not as good as Le Castors Eclipse, or Pit Caribous Brown Ale Americaine, but in the same mould. Really nice, really drinkable.
