Wild Rose Brewery, Calgary, Alberta

  • This ale was brewed as a celebration to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mount Royal University, a close neighbour of the Wild Rose Brewery. Also this is our 100th beer we have reviewed since the start of our Calgary Beer Drinkers project. 100 different beers since August. Cheers to us! Cheers to MRU! Cheers to Wild Rose! Cheers to good quality craft beer!
  • 5% ABV
  • Light to almost a negligible head, small islands of foam.
  • Reddish brown, opaque beer
  • The aroma is sweet and malty, typical of an english ale.
  • There is a nice hoppy flavour. Not sure exactly what style Wild Rose was brewing here, but I would probably call this a pale ale. (I have been wrong before 😦 Anyone please correct me if I am)
  • Very well balanced and refreshing beer.
  • Love the 1 L sized bottle, perfect for sharing with a couple of friends.
  • This was a limited release beer, so it may not be available any longer. If you see it, pick a bottle up, definitely worth a try.
