This is my favorite drink on the planet. I drive to Kingston from Pennsylvania a few times a year to treat myself to this wonderful tonic. It blends fruitiness with a nutty flavor and a head that coats the inside of the pint to make what I call perfection.

A very refreshing pleasent summer beer. Very mild in taste dispute being 6% in alcohol. Has a slight hop betterness, with a slightly sour taste. Aftertaste is somewhat wooden, likely from the cask. A nice beer... to bad the rest of the beers don’t match up, the White Tail is worse than vitually any macros swill

Cask- Served a dark amber color with a creamy head that faded very slowly to good lacing. Malt & coffee aroma with fresh grain & fruit mixed in. Slightly sweet with roasted malt and a clean finish. Medium body, creamy smooth, well balanced. The 6% ABV is well hidden. Great cask ale, very satisfying.

Tap at the brewery. Very tasty. Aromas of caramel, plum, and nuts. Taste is sweet, with good length. Palate is almost creamy, with a thin-to-medium body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Deep amber-brown pour with a tight creamy head - lovely looking pint really. The nose is very fruity with a soft Fuggles hop woodiness. A bit of malt sweetness with just a hint of blackberry fruitiness. A hint of tartness but its actually kind of nice. Pretty solid brew.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2010 UPRATE - OK I’m a sucker for this when its on, although it can be off. Tonight’s was great. wonderful cherry and apple fruit, equally worthy aromas -- ORIG RATE - Cask. Deep clear reddish brown with nice ring of head. Extremely fresh and tasty with nice texture. Flavor much stronger than aroma - a big, delicate middle of malt suggesting fruit, perhaps dark ripe cherries. Not offendingly earthy for me. Will drink again.

On cask, at the brewpub. My hometown is 45 minutes away from here, and I am there often, and I just got out to this place this past week. Go figure. Anyway, the pub itself was fantastic, the food was good and the beer was solid for the most part. This was my first pint and I have to say it is far better than the numbers here would suggest. Very dark brown, with a creamy (sparkler?) off white head - looks great. Some malt and slight hops in subtle aroma. Creamy mouthfeel borders on thick. Nice traditional cask Bitter taste - malt, lots of fruit notes and some complimenting hops. The fruity finish is probably more flavourful than the first half. A pint of this compares very favourably to the best Ontario cask pints like those found at the granite or Durham. Nothing spectacular to get the numbers way up, but if lived in Kingston, this would be my cask ale session pint. Kudus to the BrewPub for this fine offering.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with decent beige head. Pleasant nut and malt aroma. Nutty malt, with some spice and a mild, tangy bitterness. Enjoyable stuff!
