Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006
Bu sur place, en cask (10 oz). Couleur orange rousse un peu brumeuse, bon collet. Arome d’houblon légèrement parfumé d’agrume et de thé. Goût assé amère, mais peu d’houblon. Pale ale typique.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Served on cask. The body was cloudy medium orange. The aroma was sweet oranges with some caramel. The taste had some caramel,. apples and some sweetness. A solid EPA.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Cask... Cloudy, golden ale with a small, whispy, white head. Great retention. I got absolutely nothing out of the nose... totally nondescript. Maybe a little smoke in there, but that’s probably due more to every patron smoking than the beer itself. Does anyone in Canada not smoke? Perfectly-balanced flavor, but flat and watery. Just a touch of bitterness. Light-bodied with almost no carbonation. Finishes watery and flat. This "real ale" sucks! If you’re going to serve "real ale", serve it from wood and make sure it’s a brew that naturally carbonates... otherwise, I’m not interested.

Sammy (8631) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
ad on cask so apparently more bitter. Pilsner-like purfumey aroma. Real ale bubbles in head, on orange tinge. English yeast, noble hops. Nice low carbonation. Drying finish. Maybe less acidic with food. Some caramel, not so balanced. Light mouthfeel. A nice one.

TaktikMTL (5761) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2005
Verre à la brasserie (Cask). Arôme: Odeur d’houblons et de pêches. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée et on y dénote aucune bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux, style savon à vaisselle, et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de mie de pain et et d’agrumes. La durée de l’arrière goût est moyenne. Palette: Le corps est mince et la texture est minérale. L’effervescence en bouche est moyenne. Présence d’amertume en arrière goût. (Rating #340)

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2005
Perfect for the style. Cask aged, hand pulled for that extra point of perfection. Pours a pale amber, SLIGHT cloudy orange tinge, with a foamy off white head that leaves serious lacings, and a creamy low carbonation body. Mouthfeel is creamy, a little viscous and leaves a chewy trace on the molars. Taste is dominated by earthy malt dancing with ripe treefruit and a heavy dose of floral/grassy hops, undertones of bitter, a slight tangy note, sweet nuts and a trace of fresh hay. Aftertaste is dry, medium bitter and finishes with a creamy fruityness, almost like a cream-cicle. All in all, it’s not what you’re comon northamerican pale ale drinkers expect. They expect a highly hopped APA. or a malty IPA, or some super malty bass copy/tribute, but this is VERY close to the mainstay of many british pubs. ’Pint of bitter’ would describe this perfectly in manchester region. Enjoy. CHEERS!

rederic (2942) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2005
A cask ale, amber-orangeish hue, with a frothy beige head, with crystal malt, floral hops, hint of fruitiness in the aroma, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity note, floral hops, crystal malt, leading towards a dry bitterness finish.

It was drizzling rain and getting pretty cold when I walked in to the pub, so a nice, tempered cask ale was just what I needed.
Bronze/orange, with a frothy, dishwater head. Oaky, cidery and apricot aroma with some citrus overtones.
Low carbonation (duh), some biscuit, mandarin oranges and a brisk, green tea astringency that creeps up on you as you drink down your pint. Easily one of the finest cask offerings in town, even though the selection for this type is pretty slim in the area.
