MiP (13725) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Seemingly hazy amber colour. Good stable creamy white head. The flavour is earthy, hint of grain. Low carbonation.

Bif (1540) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Cask- Served a dark amber color with a creamy head that faded very slowly to good lacing. Malt & coffee aroma with fresh grain & fruit mixed in. Slightly sweet with roasted malt and a clean finish. Medium body, creamy smooth, well balanced. The 6% ABV is well hidden. Great cask ale, very satisfying.

DuffMan (6974) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Cask, at the brewpub. Clear orange amber, dense quarter-inch frothy head. Very fruity-yeasty aroma, muted caramel. Light palate (surprising for the listed ABV), softly carbonated, sweet caramel and apple fruit, low reedy bitterness. Itís just nice to have a cask ale on the menu!

AWS9 (500) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with decent beige head. Pleasant nut and malt aroma. Nutty malt, with some spice and a mild, tangy bitterness. Enjoyable stuff!

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2008
Cask- Deep hazy amber/brown with a creamy head with good longevity. No real lace though. The aromas arenít really all that in your face, but they show muted malts, leafy greens, with fruit and a sort of dank room quality. The taste brings forth earthy, faint caramel malts with some bread crust and lends to almost sour apples and iced tea. Creamy, slightly sweet finish. Strange offering really, but enjoyable enough that I had a full pint.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
Dark golden brown with a light tan head. Strong malty aroma with light flowery bitters. The beer doesnít lend itself to being too complex and the hand-pumping makes the flavours fresh but of course a bit flat but not in a bad way. The lack of carbonation makes it very smooth. The flavour has malty sweetness and light fruity hop hints a light sourness and light bitterness.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
Cask. At the brewpub. Quite a look to this pint - murky, near-muddy brown with a small creamy mottled tan head (3+). The first thing I picked up on the nose was malt extract - evidently most of their brews are extract, but for all that, not bad - anyway, aroma of sweet malt extract, some light but pungent spice/yeast, quite sweet. The taste was dry and leafy-bitter, but very fruity - reminded me of a blend of unfiltered apple juice and black tea. Sugary, still and mildly astringent on the palate, a little of that extract tang in the aftertaste - just okay, really, even for cask.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2008
Cask at the brewpub. Deep amber with a creamy head that sticks around for the duration. Caramel and earthy hops on the nose. Soft mouthfeel. Flavour is nice and subtle, a bit nutty, will mellow hops in the finish. Not spectacular, but a decent quaff.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
The pour reveals a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Medium intensity aroma of earthy hops, not too exciting but it gets worse in the flavor where the earthy hops are still there but feel weak and boring. The palate is light and creamy and the carbonation is gentle.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 18, 2006
Mahogany-brown with crisp white top. It gave fine contrasting appearance. Mild, sweet, grainy aroma, creamy nose with light roast character as it warmed up. Full bodied, sweet malts, brown sugar, creamy texture. Mild soft roast. Not as clean as I wished to be. Slightly sour at the edge.
