Part of the Welly One Off series. They say home is where the heart is and we’ve poured our heart into this homegrown offering. This beer is brewed and patterned after traditional English style bitters but contains only locally grown hops. These hops were transplanted from England around 200 years ago but have adapted to Canadian life well. This 5.2% amber beer contains hops grown at the Ignatius college in Guelph and is wet-hopped with our own hops grown at Wellington Brewery that were harvested and added immediately to the brew. If you close your eyes while you are enjoying this beer it is almost like you can taste a little bit of Wellington in every sip! Homegrown sweet homegrown!

    Can. Colour - clear reddish-gold, thin creamy tan coloured cap, no lacing. Aroma - notes of roasted malt, caramel, cereal grains, and weak yeast and citrus notes. Mouthfeel - medium bodied, well carbonated. Flavour - well balanced with sweet and nutty malt up front and a nice bitter hoppy finish in the end.

    473ml silver can. Poured an amber-gold ale in the glass. Modest white cap reduces in time and provides moderate lacing. Light carbonation. Aroma has some caramel sweetness, fruity ester and some herbal-herbaceous hop tones. Soft mouth feel but flavorful. Starts with a dose of chewy caramel malting well balanced with resinous hopping, mild palate, rounded character, long wet finish has the herbal wet hop kiss at the end. Not a bad little local bitter, I like the addition of the wet hops. Perhaps Wellington’s one off series will get more interesting as it progresses.
