COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 don’t normally like beer, love this one. It has a nice lovely light sweet finish and velvet texture.

asheft (2551) - Ottawa, Ontario, - JUL 22, 2012
[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.

TaktikMTL (6031) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Bouteille de 500 ml achetée chez LCBO (Rockland, ONT) au coût de 3,45$. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel avec une pointe de miel. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une forte densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel et de fruité. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #5980)

jkwood04 (4172) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 20, 2014
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light malts and nuts and notes of yeasty dough. Flavor tastes infected with grossness. Weird texture. A really weird and bad beer.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy malt notes with some sweet honey notes is OK. Taste is dominated by some grainy malt with light unrefined notes and some honey notes also noticeable. Body is full enough with good carbonation. OKish but need to clean up a little but the malt bill.

lesifflebiere (1353) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
Boisson couleur auburn, tirant sur l’acajou, avec un nez de cassonnade et d’érable, et une apparence mi-mince, accentuée par la carbonatation quasi nulle. La bouche est ronde, sucrée, mielleuse et caramélisée. Le tout est assez simple, on pourrait dire que ça manque de houblons, mais en général c’est une bière agréable, plutôt désaltérante, et malgré sa simplicité elle n’est pas aqueuse ni trop diluée en terme de saveurs.

Spab (2573) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clearish copper colour with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet honey, bread and some fruitiness. Flavour is sweet, honeyed bread, caramel and some dried fruit. Average body. Ok.

Canmoore (285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours a light brown with an off white head. Aroma notes include malts, figs, and honey. Tasting notes include light malts, honey, and fruity esters. Not bad, slightly netter than your run of the mill brown ale.

samzim (247) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Faint malty scent. Clear auburn colour. Flavour of honey, figs, and malt. Medium body and carbonation. Quite a nice beer.

TheJester (1960) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
500 mL bottle. Cola brown with just a film of head. Would be a 4/5 with a better head. Caramel, fresh bread crust, and an herbal note in the nose. Pretty nice. The taste is decent as well, with caramel, honey, dates, and cola. Not too sweet. Decent body. A nice surprise.

andrewturba (1083) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours a fairly clear copper with a spotty white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, honey, and light nutty notes. Flavour is nutty, caramel, getting some cardboard(goes away some as it warms up), lightly metallic, moderate bitterness and faint honey notes.

Reimer96 (1342) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2014 Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear amber with a small head. Aroma of caramel, honey, nuts and cardboard. Taste is lightly metallic, cardboard, caramel, nutty and light sweet honey. Off flavors kill this one but it definitely has the potential to be a nice well rounded sessionable beer.
