2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Sawdust City Tap Takeover, C’est What. Pours a murky brown with no head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, a hint of fruit and some very light hops -- that sounds good but it’s a bit of a mess. Flavour follows the aroma and is also a mess. The finish is iffy. Average bodied. Just O.K.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2013-05-07. Bizarre first taste. Smokey earthy vinous character is not what I was expecting. Quite fruity but the finish has a lightly ashen bitterness. Average bodied palate, very low carbonation. Aroma is similar, odd earthy sort of vinous character. Not sure what they were going for but I really do not care for it. On cask at SC Tap Takeover, C’est What, Toronto
