Aroma is a full fruity hops and fine malt,opaque golden/amber, tiny off-white head. Taste is a fresh leafy hops with a decent malt underpinning. Light bodied, well balanced, quite drinkable! Very nice offering indeed.
On cask at Bar Volo Cask Days - Toronto. Appearance: Cloudy orange, zero head, all in order there for a cask! Aroma: Chocolate, malt, nice green hops with a smidgen of tobacco. Flavour: Young hops, tobacco, caramel, bitter hops and some wine/vineous properties. Not bad. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 28, 2009

Volo 2009 English cask fest. Another good understated offering by this brewer. Golden colour with no head. A peachy fruity taste, nice hops at a low IBU of coure, refreshing. Average mouthfeel. Nice and fresh. HogTownHarry (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Cask. At Volo 2009 English Cask event. Ratting #3900. Hazy orange pour, wispy little head. Light and dry aroma of orange zest, cereal grain and dry herbal/floral bitterness - appealing, and not at ALL sweet. Initially mild bitter grassy/herbal taste, it developed more bitterness - grassy, then crushed grapeseed sharpness, a hint of lemon tartness - dry grain and even a bit of alcohol - simple, refreshing - and not sweet at all. Slick, soft, slightly astringent mouthfeel, very cask-still, with a medium-long pungent floral finish - a solid, solid cask ale, well done Doug! Beer of the night for me and most everyone else - it sure ran out quick enough!!!
