Spab (3683) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
On cask at Cest What. Pours a clear bright golden colour with decent-sized, lasting white head and nice lace. Aroma is mellow with hay and fresh cut grass, as well as a little sweet fruitiness. Flavour is on the mild side with fresh hay, grass and an unusual sweet, almost minty fruitiness in the finish. Very minimal, soft carbonation. Odd, but not unpleasant.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 [4762-20120914] Cask. Fresh light grass yeast aroma. Clear, light orange body with a small long-lasting foamy white head. Yeasty bread dough flavour has a hint of lemongrass hops in the finish. Light-medium body. Light and refreshing, very drinkable without any bitterness that usually comes along with this type of beer.

Cask at Cest What, Toronto
Blond color, hazy, no head. The aroma is breadish, maybe even a bit feety. The flavor is light, a bit buttery and breadish; low bitterness, with very light hop fruity touch.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is pretty subdued - a little bit of orangey fruit and some light berry character as well. Moderately sweet palate with the hops playing a backing role to the malt. Its sweet but not cloying with a blackberry sort of flavour in addition to a bit of crackery malt flavour. Fairly estery as it warms and there is a bit of slight herbaceousness as it warms a bit. Okay - but it doesnt rock my socks.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 2015-10-08. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, relatively mild. 6+ Flavour is pleasantly fruity, very lightly yeasty, green melon character. Smooth bodied palate, low carbonation. Decent, quaffable. 7/3/7/3/14+Cask at Cest What, Toronto

2012-09-14. Crisp dark yellow body, modest white head. 3+ Very floral hop character has a bit of a buttery saaz like quality to it (or is that diacytl? I dont think so.), light bitterness, mild pale malt. 6+ Floral hop aroma, lightly buttery/buttercup floral. 6+ Very smooth average bodied palate. It is okay, not what I expected, and not to my own tastes. Decent. 6/3/7/3/13 On cask at Cest What Festival of Small Breweries as "Fresh Hops"

Cask at Burger Bar. Pours a hazy pale golden-orange with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Mild aroma of bready malt, some butteriness and light hops -- pleasant. Slightly watery but easy to drink flavour of bready caramel malt, light hops, some fruit and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Simple and easy to drink, its a fine English Pale Ale. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

HogTownHarry (6566) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Cask pint at Burger Bar. Hazy gold, average lasting creamy/foamy white head. Soft aroma, zero alcohol, floral/grassy but a hint of buttery diacetyl. Taste follows, less butter, a bit of alcohol, middling cereal malt. Chewy, weak carbonation, quick finish. Simple, but easy to drink
