Notes / Commercial Description:
Two of the things Britain is renowned for across the globe are traditional ale and puddings. Following the success of Wells Banana Bread Beer comes the latest addition to the exquisitely crafted Wells ales range – Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale.

Wells has been using age-old traditional brewing methods to perfect its ales since 1876 and Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale is made to those same exacting standards. It is brewed with our own accredited Natural Mineral Water and the choicest English ingredients. As a result, it delivers all the satisfying, complex taste you’d expect from a true beer but with a unique, indulgent twist.

Using traditional British desserts as our source of inspiration, we discovered that the natural, rich flavours of Sticky Toffee Pudding could be exquisitely combined with darker malts to create a truly distinctive ale. With toffee and caramel hints and rich fruit aromas, Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale is an intensely satisfying beer.

This beer pours a clear uby brown with a small head. The aroma features lots of English toffee, caramel, banana, bubblegum and a lot of brown sugar. The flavor is much drier than the smell, with dry caramel, toffee, and a woodsy hop finish. The mouthfeel is fairly thin with low creamy carbonation. Overall this is a really nice beer - it smells very sweet, but drinks dry, with a set of very enjoyable flavors.

Poured from bottle into tulip, 1/2 finger light tan head, little retention, nice lacing. Dark brown in the glass, some light is peaking thru. Smells of toffee and caramel, with some bready malt peaking thru. Taste is initially sweet malt on the front, the caramel and toffee flavors come out in the middle and it finishes with a mild bitter finish. Mouthfeel is a little light but if you want a caramelish brown ale then this is for you.

Nice body with a beautiful caramel color. Not overwhelmingly sweet-with hints of butterscotch. Essence of caramel and hunts of banana with a tiny hop finish. Delicious-would drink more than one.

medium/dark brown. Smells sweet and of toffee like the name would suggest. I just don't think the flavor carries over into the beer that well. It instead takes like a thin brown ale. Not terrible, but great, either.

Drank from 12 oz bottle. Very sweet. Delicious, but not sure if I'd want to have too many of these. I would definitely recommend trying it at least once though.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Addle has a butterscotch pudding aroma and taste with a malty ending and very lightly carbonated mouthfeel. It's quite nice, though I think I like Wells' Banana Bread a little bit more.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Date is illegible.
Clear amber brown body with little foam.
Wells nailed the caramel, almost butterscotch, aroma and taste, however it has no body. It's disapointing. Sticky toffee and pudding all imply a thickness that is missing.
