The Rhino Autumnfest. Soupy head, like a cask. Lacy, at room temperature and soapy, similar to a cask. Mild hop flavour.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 [4762-20120914] Cask. Fresh light grass yeast aroma. Clear, light orange body with a small long-lasting foamy white head. Yeasty bread dough flavour has a hint of lemongrass hops in the finish. Light-medium body. Light and refreshing, very drinkable without any bitterness that usually comes along with this type of beer.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Cask at C’est What, Toronto
Blond color, hazy, no head. The aroma is breadish, maybe even a bit feety. The flavor is light, a bit buttery and breadish; low bitterness, with very light hop fruity touch.
Problematic.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is pretty subdued - a little bit of orangey fruit and some light berry character as well. Moderately sweet palate with the hops playing a backing role to the malt. It’s sweet but not cloying with a blackberry sort of flavour in addition to a bit of crackery malt flavour. Fairly estery as it warms and there is a bit of slight herbaceousness as it warms a bit. Okay - but it doesn’t rock my socks.

2012-09-14. Crisp dark yellow body, modest white head. 3+ Very floral hop character has a bit of a buttery saaz like quality to it (or is that diacytl? I don’t think so.), light bitterness, mild pale malt. 6+ Floral hop aroma, lightly buttery/buttercup floral. 6+ Very smooth average bodied palate. It is okay, not what I expected, and not to my own tastes. Decent. On cask at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries as "Fresh Hops"

Cask at Burger Bar. Pours a hazy pale golden-orange with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Mild aroma of bready malt, some butteriness and light hops -- pleasant. Slightly watery but easy to drink flavour of bready caramel malt, light hops, some fruit and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Simple and easy to drink, it’s a fine English Pale Ale. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Cask pint at Burger Bar. Hazy gold, average lasting creamy/foamy white head. Soft aroma, zero alcohol, floral/grassy but a hint of buttery diacetyl. Taste follows, less butter, a bit of alcohol, middling cereal malt. Chewy, weak carbonation, quick finish. Simple, but easy to drink
