Bu sur place (20 oz), en cask. Ambrée foncé, bon collet. Légé arome d’houblon un peu amère. Son goût est plus a,éere qu’houblonneuse. Passable.

Cask at the brewpub. Pours a hazy dark copper with a small lasting off-white head. Very mild aroma of faint floral hops. Flavour’s hoppy and fruity with a hint of metal in the bitter aftertaste. Light bodied. I liked it but I found it just O.K.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
A nice brownish tinge with a head and a process of lace, however near watery with bitter and metallic taste, and significant malt in the finish. Its drinkable, but the formula works better on tap

On cask, at the brewpub. My hometown is 45 minutes away from here, and I am there often, and I just got out to this place this past week. Go figure. Anyway, the pub itself was fantastic, the food was good and the beer was solid for the most part. This was my first pint and I have to say it is far better than the numbers here would suggest. Very dark brown, with a creamy (sparkler?) off white head - looks great. Some malt and slight hops in subtle aroma. Creamy mouthfeel borders on thick. Nice traditional cask Bitter taste - malt, lots of fruit notes and some complimenting hops. The fruity finish is probably more flavourful than the first half. A pint of this compares very favourably to the best Ontario cask pints like those found at the granite or Durham. Nothing spectacular to get the numbers way up, but if lived in Kingston, this would be my cask ale session pint. Kudus to the BrewPub for this fine offering.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2010 UPRATE - OK I’m a sucker for this when its on, although it can be off. Tonight’s was great. wonderful cherry and apple fruit, equally worthy aromas -- ORIG RATE - Cask. Deep clear reddish brown with nice ring of head. Extremely fresh and tasty with nice texture. Flavor much stronger than aroma - a big, delicate middle of malt suggesting fruit, perhaps dark ripe cherries. Not offendingly earthy for me. Will drink again.

Cask. Caramel and hops in the aroma, cloudy, dark amber, tiny cream head. Taste starts off with some strong hops, followed by muted malt. Typically smooth(cask) some sweetness. Fine.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2005
Dark amber/brown with a respectable creamy beige head. Coats the glass a bit. Muted fruity hops in the aroma haunted by vaguely acidic notes (a fellow drinker said sulphury but I don’t think that is quite right. Flavour is malty with a fruity quality to it, very well balanced but a slight acidity showed up here as well - not unpleasantly so but it had the feel of an unexpected guest that didn’t quite belong. Not as good as I remember but nice.

Respectable caramel apples mashed to a beautiful, creamy, buttery feel...Orangey hops respond in the back but fail to remain as long as I would have desired them...A nice real ale, with not much conversation...
