Granite Hoppin Mad on Cask at Bar Volo. It is red malty goodness with a solid citrusy hop nose. It has a silky smooth cask  mouthfeel. The taste is bitter malts & citrus.

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.

From Cask Days tent at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2013, Vankleek Hill. Clear pale amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is caramel, hops, butter. Flavor is caramel, toasty. Finish is somewhat herbal, earthy, metallic. Dish water. A hint of citrus...light body, null carbonation. Not so great.

On cask at WVRST. Hazy copper with a foamy head. Floral citrus aroma with caramalt characters. Malt and hop balanced out nicely in the taste. Super smooth and creamy cask mouthfeel; awesome. A good one from Granite.

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.

My first cask pour at C’est What. Hoping this becomes a gateway. Great drink but won’t work for a session.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Balanced hoppy beer with delicate malt. Tasty enough.
