3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the brewpub. Clear amber with bubbly creamy white head. The nose is nutty, malty, somewhat fruity, not much in terms of Cascade - it’s more a herbal, grassy, earthy East Kent Golding character. The flavour’s malty, earthy, with roughish herbal bitterness. Too much perhaps for the overall lightness. Really soft on the palate with practically no carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet fruity hops. The flavor was tangy, bitter, sourish and off with egg white an yeast. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Dark hazy copper pour with a fairly thick head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, milder fruit and malt aromas as well. Taste is great, big hop bite up front leading into a smoother malt back.

Draft - Orange and pine hops. Clear gold with a thin white head. Orange, resin and pine with a mellow bitterness. A well balanced mellow cask, but nothing special.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 A good beer. Great to have on tap at the brewery, it is a nice little Brew/Pub in Toronto to visit and try some new beers. You can take some home in growlers as well afterwards.
