Draught at C’est What, TorontoLubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2011
Golden to amber color, with creamy head. Some aroma of malt and hay. Smooth mouthfeel, with nice malt and hay flavor, some cereals, a bit creamy; correct bitterness. Balanced.
A hazed amber with a thin white head. In aroma, white wine and smooth sweet malt, fruity esters. In mouth, a smooth nutty and oaky malt with oily mouthfeel, chalky, nice. Cask at Beaus’s Oktoberfest, Oct. 1 2011. Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Very decent cask format beer, enjoyed at C’est What. Slight greyish lager, with a good head, followed by lots of lace. A light smoked malt that is quite tasty, and there is a creamy mouthfeel. Surprisingly little smoke in the nose, jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2009 2009-11-29. Dark orange amber body with a nice creamy beige head and lace. Flavour is pleasant, caramel, toasty malt, very slight fruity tang. Light bitterness grows as the glass goes on. Aroma of toasty malt, light fruity touch as in the flavour. Average plus palate. Significantly better than my previous sample. 7/4/7/3+/14 - 3.5On tap at Volo, TorontoJoeMcPhee (9451) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
2009-10-01. Hazy dark amber brown body with a good sized beige head. 3+ Odd aroma is malty with a touch of a malty tang to it, light fruity notes. Flavour is similarly malty with fruity tangy undercurrents that distract from the malty core. Average palate. Decent, but I look forward to trying this again on tap or in a bottle, I am not sure it was best served on cask. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0 On cask at C’est What
Deep amber-orange pour. Tight white head. The aroma is lightly sour with a touch of soft vanilla as well. Moderate Munich malt sweetness along with a touch of fruit that is kind of unwanted. A touch estery and chewy. Medium-bodied with a little bit of toffee as well. It’s actually fairly hoppy though and the hops are more UK than German. Odd brew- this is.

Tap at the Rebel House. Copper coloured pour with a tight and sticky head. The aroma is appropriately malty with lots of Munich malt toastiness. Light noble hops along with a touch of fresh bread crust. Good balance although it’s initially quite carbonic tasting. Better than the ratings would suggest.

[2506-20091002] Cask. Not much aroma, a little grainy fruit. Murky, orange brown body with a thick long-lasting creamy off-white head. Light fruity oak wood flavour with citrus rind finish and a long sweet aftertaste. Medium body, not particularly carbonated. Quite drinkable, the oak notes are not too overpowering but definitely carve a presence.

(21st FFOCB @ C’est What; Toronto, ON)
Cask at C’est What’s ’Fall Festival of Craft Breweries’. Pours a murky copper with a small long-lasting creamy off-white head. Mild malty aroma, a touch sour, along with toffee, fruit and notes of wood and smoke. Slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, fruit, a touch wood and light hops in the finish. Average bodied. A fine beer. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 5, 2009
cask at C’est What HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2009
Appearance: thickly hazed, dark amber with mid plus thick creamy, tanned top.
Nose: neat , smooth hop sided nose , leafy with cask acidic side. Well composed. 7+
Flavor/Palate : Mid bodied , with soft silky textures. Mild sweet malts with smooth fell to it. Dangerously drinkable brew. Light yet wholesome hop character that was well rounded with slight oak cask bitter ending. Good, balanced on all sides.
Cask. At 2009 C’est What Fall festival. Hazy reddish-amber pour, average off-white frothy head. Vague aroma of orange juice and sweet grain; a little floral, woody and dry. Taste was mildly oaky, and oddly vinous - raw red wine with a green tannin bitterness, as well as bitterness that seem floral and black tea-like. Thin, acidic mouthfeel, dry and astringent, bitter and a bit harsh in the linger - seemed a bit unmeshed, I didn’t dig it much - I hope Ken brings it to the Volo event later in October, I would like to try it again.
