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!

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 Couleur ambrée tirant vers l’oranger parsemé de grosses bulles typiques au service en cask. Cet échantillon est d’une fraîcheur exceptionnelle. Les arômes sont reminiscentes des pêches et des abricots frais et rapellent presque les popsicle. Corps d’une épaisseur semi mince tout en n’étant aucunement aqueux en bouche. Le caractère épicé du houblon semble beaucoup moins présent qu’habituellement. Les flaveurs de malt caramel légèrement sucré se marient parfaitement bien au beurre ainsi qu’au doux parfums de fruits en bouche. En fut, le 9 Mai, à la brasserie.

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.

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.

HogTownHarry (6104) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Cask. at LaB. Very cloudy amber pour with an average lasting foamy white head. Leafy, dry perfume/herbal hop aroma, nicely balanced by mildly roasted caramel malt. Terrific taste - simple, refreshing ... dusty floral bitterness, light sweet malt. Soft, light mouthfeel, a whisper of squeaky astringency, a fast delicate quick finish. Really did have a mild tea-like character, man this place makes solid beers.

Cask at L’Amère à Boire. Pours a cloudy dark orange with an average size lasting foamy white head. Mild but pleasant citrus hop aroma with caramel malt, light spices and some fruit. Flavour is just hoppy enough to make me a happy camper. Average to medium bodied. A very enjoyable Pale Ale.
