The first Cassel Brewery recipe to come out of the kettles. I have modified it slightly afterward but the same basic recipe remains. This brew was designed to please almost everyone, even those who donít normally like beer, love this one. It has a nice lovely light sweet finish and velvet texture.

[growler from brewery] Nutty aroma with plenty of brown sugar, some cream, and detectable hops. Clear dark amber under a tan foam that drops to a patch and lace. The flavour is sweet and nutty malt up front, followed by a bit of bread crust and then brown sugar (honey?) together with a subtle bitterness. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, nutty finish. Balance is a bit too much on the sweet side--a drier finish would be better.

Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Sweet malt and honey aroma. Carmel, honey and cereal flavour with a creamy body. Good beer but a bit too sweet for me.

bottle. Poured deep amber-brown with a thin but lasting creamy tan head. Sweet malt aroma. Medium-light body, average carbonation, sticky finish. Caramel malt flavour, honey sweet with a woody quality, slightly musty and spicy.

bottle. dark amber-brown colour, thin head. Sweet malts, honey, caramel. Creamy mouthfeel. The honey sweetness overwhelms this one.

Clear, brown amber body, no carbonation, no head. Clover meadows with wet hay and ripe summer fruits to the nose. Flavor is leaning on sweet but not overly so. Quality hops offer good overall balance. A little flat but canít say that it takes away from enjoyability.

Raistlin (315) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours hazy copper colour with minimal white head. It is way too sweet. Has taste of caramel and honey. Honey sweetness just overwhelms everything else. Way too thin of a texture. No body to it at all. Feels very watery.

I smell chocolate and spices. Semi-sweet malts and honey feature prominently in the flavour, and itís far less cloying than I expected. Far from my favourite style but not bad at all.

500ml bittle . LCBO Liberty Village. Unfiltered red autumn sunset colour. Thin light head turns into a thin lacing of big bubbles. A lot of heavy semi-sweet chocolate aromas, and honey. Chicolate . Easy drinking and refreshing ale an fading taste of savory cake batter and a provencial bitterness way on the back of the tongue. Very tasty dessert beer.
