dfearnley (888) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Cask to pint glass @ Volo Hops, barnyard, horse blanket, cider...hard to tell if there's anything else as the air is filled with a distinctive weedy aroma. Slightly hazy amber with a thin white head. Taste is slightly sour, with hay and hops and a little citrus. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, creamy, with a little oiliness. Pleasant to drink.

Cask at Volo, Toronto
Cloudy light amber color; creamy head. Light yeast aroma. Strong flavor of cereals; some yeast. Ordinary bitterness.
Confusing.

Sammy (8406) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
Cask at Project X. Lighter mouthfeel, not significantly bitter but nicely drinkable. A break from more edgy beers. Nice just not the style. Brewed at GL.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
June 24, 2011 - House Ales Launch event at Volo: gravity cask. Almost murky orange with an average creamy/frothy off-white head. Mild aroma, a bit floral, dry wheat ... not bad, just a bit light. Taste follows, some thick gluten and orange peel, no alcohol, well balanced with its hit of dry floral bitterness. Thick, somewhat still, dry and a bit astringent --- quick finish. Not a world-beater, but a refreshing if undemanding quaff.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 Deep golden-orange pour. Very fruity tropical nose with both orange/mango as well as some blackberry and raspberry hop (Northern Brewer/brambling Cross perhaps?). Fruity and very zesty with a bright hop bitterness on the back of the softly sweet malts. Very fresh tasting - I could drink a million of these. Cask. Hazy amber-gold pour. The aroma is nice. Light bready/crackery malts with a bit of yeasty body. Lightly sweet but balanced by a nice sticky herbal hoppiness. A little bit of earthiness and some light citrus as well. Juicy and spicy - a pretty solid bitter really - very sessionable. 7 4 7 4 14

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Cask at Volo. Pours a hazy golden-orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma is fruity along with a good amount of English hops and some grain. Flavour: Refreshing and oh-so-easy to drink, quite flavourful and on style. Average+ bodied, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. A great session Ale.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 23, 2011
On cask @ Bar Volo. Appearance: Lovely golden hazy orange with a decent egg shell head. Aroma: Lovely orange, mango and pine nose with a good ’farmhouse’ nose, very Saison like. Lovely. Flavour: wow, orange, ’farmhouse’ again, oats, faint citrus, a little yeast, quite quaffable, could drink this all day. Very sessionable.

Appearance medium thick haze on amber. Medium creamy head.
Flavor and Palate : Malty sweetness with slight citric feel. Low cask carbonation. Straight drinkable bitter ale.

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
Pint at Volo. Poured a murky light brown with decent head. Aroma is light hops, some caramel malt. Taste is pleasingly bitter with a very interesting floral, citrus note in mid palate. Finish is sufficiently bitter and the beer overall is very flavourful considering the relatively low alcohol. Quite sessionable. Well done Ralph.
