3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at C’est What tap takeover. A nice cask. The basil gave a vegetable, green tea taste to a hoppy beer. A nice integration.

Cask at Sawdust City Tap Takeover, C’est What. Pours a murky golden orange with no head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity along with a hint of herbs. Nice flavour, hoppy, fruity and herbal and with a long bitter finish. Just a bit watery. Average to medium bodied. Very pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-05-07. Lightly hazy bright orange body, small beige head that fades quickly. Pleasant mild aroma, fruity, modest orange citrus. Light pithy accents and muted leafy green touches. Flavour is similar, pleasant sweet orange citrus. Light bitterness throughout. Mild green leafy notes in the finish, basil character that my palate is not sophisticated enough to have identified without knowing that’s what it is. It’s pleasantly mild, but grows as it goes. Comes out a bit in the aroma as well as it warms up. Smooth average plus bodied palate is good for a cask but nearly flat. Enjoyable. Smelled someone else’s pint later and it had a strong tomato vines like green vegetation and basil character in the aroma. Enjoyable, and MUCH better than anticipated!
