[Cask at ’Cask Days 2013’.] Beer #26 of the fest. Pours a murky orange-amber with a small long-lasting bubbly white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, light hops, some toffee and fruit. Flavour follows the aroma and finishes lightly bitter. Average bodied. a fairly mediocre Englsih-style Ale

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
2013-10-19. Hazy dark orange body small frothy head. 3+ Aroma is mild, lightly yeasty malt, muted fruit notes. Flavour is similar, malty core, sweetish caramel and mild bitterness throughout. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent, milder than my preference but pretty good. Would likely fare better on it’s own with a longer pint. Session 2, Cask Days 2013, Toronto

Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2013
A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a nice caramel malt with light floral hops, very English, with vinous notes. In mouth, a sweet nutty caramel malt with grassy hops, not bad.

jdobbs (331) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
slightly clourdy, decent frothing. nice malted brew, very pleasant although has a soap like quality or honey note. Medium bodied brew, having decent hop attributes and malted mid palate. very decent stuff.

buckwheat13 (9) - Moncton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013 does not count
Good bittering hops, earthy, toast hits you up front, high carbonation, some subtle dark fruits, overall a good effort.

Spab (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
500 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a lightly cloudy copper colour with small off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity with toasty caramel and a light earthy hop note. Flavour has lots of fruitiness - blend of light and dark - moderately toasty caramel and a gentle earthy/piney hoppiness. Modest bitterness in finish. Pleasant beer.
