On cask at C'est What, into a pint glass.

Clear golden orange body, with a finger of white head. Good retention but no lace to mention. Nose is predominantly orange and tangerine-y hops, with some sweet biscuity malt character. Taste provides alot more juicy hop character, generally some citrus-y flavours. Moderate bitter finish, light body with really nice, soft cask carbonation. An easy drinker, and a solid cask offering. Nickel Brook appears to really be putting their shit together.

Bottle to Founders tulip glass.

A - Poured a slightly cloudy medium yellow with a big bright yellow glow around the edges. Half a finger of white head formed with good retention.

S - Big grapefruit aroma up front that accompanies a fairly big bitterness. Some pine aromas and a touch of sweetness from the malts comes through as well. Very fresh nose.

T - A good bitterness up front that is full of fresh grapefruit and pine flavours. A decent caramel sweetness from the malt bill is in a perfect proportion. A very nice APA.

M - Fairly high carbonation; too much for my liking. Light to medium body overall.

O - Another welcome addition to the Ontario beer scene. Would definitely buy this one again. Well done!
