One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale

I do love Wells Banana Bread Beer so I thought I'd give this one a try.  It's a lovely dark brown treacle colour with a slightly red tinge.  There is an interesting smell of sweet toffee cake as it pours. The rather disappointing head only lasts a few seconds giving the ale a look of Coca Cola.

It actually does taste of sticky toffee pudding with a slight bitterness of chocolate, although it is a bit odd in an ale.  It has a burnt toffee/treacle flavour and a not unpleasant sponge cake aftertaste.  It is quite fizzy with harsh little bubbles bursting on the tongue so I was quite surprised at the lack of head.  It is because of this fizz that I felt like I was drinking coke rather than ale.

It's ok as a gimmick but not one Ale be seeing again.

Brewed by Charles Wells, Bedford
5% ABV
