Brewery: Wellington Brewery
Type: Special Pale Ale
Thoughts: I was immediately drawn to, and pleasantly surprised, by the deep amber color. I was expecting more of a lighter golden-yellow, as is typical of pale ales.
In terms of taste and mouthfeel, this beer starts out clean and crisp but also has wonderful creaminess mid way through. There’s a fairly distinct taste of grainy, roasted malt throughout the entire mouthful however I’m also able to detect the subtle presence of hops as they attempt to cut through. There’s very little bitterness.
I believe that’s 2 for 2 for Wellington Brewery.
