BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bellwoods Brewery
Ontario, Canada
bellwoodsbrewery.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
At the time of its inception, this was a very unique beer for Bellwoods to brew. Though we were earning a reputation for making a lot of high ABV, full-flavoured brews, we still couldn’t deny the appeal of something easy drinking and sessionable. Not really wanting to go the route of the lager, and inspired by the hop-forward low alcohol pale ales emerging from the states, we devised the Wizard Wolf. Weighing in at 4.8% this deceivingly flavourful session ale is easy to drink, and doesn’t knock you off your feet after just one.

Thanks to igeunard for sharing the bottle!

Like most low(er) ABV beers, this one suffers slightly from low(er) taste and mouthfeel as well. Having said that, it is a tasty version with a decent hop presence and easy drinkability.
