(Cask at Gallow’s Bird, 20121103) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was white, small and long lasting. Aroma had fruitiness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, pine, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was hoppy and bitter. A surprisingly hoppy cask ale but also a good and well balanced one.

Marheb (2047) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Des céréales bien croquants qui se laissent infiltrées par une résine très amère aux teintes d’agrumes et de fleurs. Avec l’effervescence qui est au plus bas, je me retrouve devant un monstre de buvabilité.
