Cask at Cest What. Nice amber colour, nit much head, a little flat. Not a huge aroma, but good bitter taste.

garthicus (2661) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 27, 2009
On cask at Volo. Probably one of the oddest coloured beers I’ve ever seen. Like a chewed up toffee mixed with peach juice. Zero head (cask) deep and murky. Aroma: zesty hops, peach, raspberry, pine and a little malt. Flavour: creamy, a little pine but certainly the flavour does not match the hop profile in the aroma. Some elderberry & tea in the finish. A pleasant brew.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
Handpump at the Victory Cafe, Toronto. Bright, glowing copper color. Big fruit nose, with hops, cereals, tobacco. Great balance; very fruity and smooth, with caramel and tobacco. Big hop finish. Good stuff.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Cask @ Victory. Gorgeous luminescent amber with perfect cream-colored head. Clean hopped nose is gorgeous, straightforward. Evergreen aromas. Palate is delightfully drinkable. Light aerated, gorgeous. Slithers down the throat. Flowery. Sublime subtlety achieved in hop balance. Hop flowers in the aftertaste. A genuinely nice brew made better with cask conditioning!

DerWeg (1492) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 Hand Pull Cask at Volo. Very nice lightly carbonated presentation (it did not seem dead flat) with fine silky feel. Decent enough hop profile with hints of citrus and overall very refreshing. ** Full on hoppy goodness. RE-TASTE - I find this beer very funky, almost animal, with some grass and leaf. Not quite my thing yet but give it time.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 Deep cloudy amber with white head. Served at room temp at Rhino on tap. Great intense hoppy malt aroma. So smooth and creamy, not too bitter in taste. Very easy drinking with a nice aftertaste.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
On cask at volo. I was a bit unimpressed by this beer. Nose was grapefruit, dough and a bit flowery. Taste was bread, bread and more bread. This tastes like someone dunked a loaf of Dimpflmeier Klosterbrot and fermented it in the deer. It was unexpected but not too bad. Hop profile was a little below average and there was a touch of grapefruit in the finish. Wouldn’t get it again, but it’s not terrible.

pootzboy (1586) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2007
From cask at the Castle: A cloudy dark honey - amber ale with a sticky 2 finger cap. Floral, cedar aroma with sweet malt undertones Nice chew of caramel malts in the front side then a rush of citrus-pine hops,... thin finish. A decent IPA..better than hop head but still a tad thin in the body for my tastes.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2007
Cask at the Victory Cafe - came a slightly cloudy deep amber with a snow white head. Nice flowery, piney aroma with some hemp and a bit of sweet malt. Flavour much the same but with a lingering bitter finish. Earthy and robust with a creamy body. Nice, nice.
