[1755-20081003] Cask. Not much aroma, some light yeasty grains and lemon. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Mild yeasty bread dough flavour has some alcoholic pine hints. Light-medium body. Nice, drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask sample at C’est What Fall Festival of Small Breweries. Light golden with a small white head. Aroma is mildly sweet, slightly fruity, with a citric hoppiness with interesting lime notes. Medium bodied. Flavour is fresh and summery, with more limey hops - more like lime leaf, actually - and a mildly sweet malt balance. Very sessionable, quite nice!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask. At Volo Cask Days 2008. Hazy light gold pour with a smallish white head. Sweet generic malt aroma, with apple, turpentine and herbal bitterness. The taste - urk, not good, harsh and chemically, something not right here. Average body, slick, harsh aftertaste. Nice, if weird, aroma, but ugly taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at C’est What. Pours a clear gold with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Mild aroma is fruity, slightly sweet and with some light hops. Slightly watery flavour’s the same: fruit, caramel malt, light hops and has a decent bitter finish. Average bodied. Not bad -- a little mild and simple, but I could drink a few pints of this no problem.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008-10-03. Light amber body with a modest white head. Mild aroma, light fruity hops. Sort of citrus or elderberry like notes to the fruitiness? (6+) Flavour has a similar sweet fruity character with pleasant bitterness throughout. Touches of citrus or citrus seed in the finish. (7+) Average palate feels thinner due to the light carbonation. Fairly mildly flavoured but quite pleasant, nice sessionable brew. Cask at C’est What

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask sample at C’est What - poured a near-clear amber with a good sized head that coated the cup. Aroma quite fresh, but fairly subtle - certainly leafy, and a bit of yeast as well. Clean. Flavour kind of non-descript - nice mild bitterness throughout, and pretty velvety. Really the ideal beer for a cask. Could see drinking a lot of this.

C’est What. Mid-yellow with white foam, very lacey. Hoppyaroma, a good cask. A satisfying medium mouthfeel plus, its creamny. A constant and decent bitterness.

Aroma of fresh, wet leafy hops, decent malt and fruit, light golden, small long lasting cream head. Tastes of mild malt, fruit, light bodied, creamy smooth, pleasant bitter bite after taste. Well done! Love the Cask.
