The St. Charles is a classic E.S.B. cask conditioned and dry hopped with Cascades. 10% crystal malt gives this ale a deep brick colour and a slight roast flavor. The E.S.B. is bittered with Bullion hops and is finished with Cascade and Willamete hops.

teromous (119) - - SEP 13, 2014
Cask on tap at the brewpub. Appearance: A darker shade of brown and slightly hazy. The head is eggshell white and very creamy. Superb lacing, leaving a solid sheet on the glass. Aroma: Not a whole lot of aroma, but there was a hint of lemongrass scent to it which was nice. Taste: Very mellow, with a light taste of bread and caramel with a slightly grassy flavor. There was a touch of orange to it but only in the back. Palate: Very creamy and smooth. Finishes clean. No obvious carbonation. Overall: A very excellent cask ale that I would drink again. It was smooth and easy drinking; easy to pair with any food. I recommend it.
