One of the current cask conditioned brews available at the Canal St. Beer Works.
Nice golden yellow look to it with a thin head, mildly hazy.
Has a nice spiced fruit aroma to it, with the camomille sticking out, but also some coriander and decent floral notes.
Has a solid citrusy taste about it, with the hop taste being fairly understated, mixing well with the spices. Has a nice full body and a solid bitterness.
A nice solid brew, that is definitely worth a try.

Into a pint glass we go. This pours much like a Belgian pale...1 1/2-finger head with solid lacing. Body is very light lemon-honey and with a little bit of cloud cover.
Of course this is extremely floral, fruity and calming. The chamomile is definitely the master of this domain.
There's a fair amount of tropical (and other) fruits here - cantaloupe, a bit of pear, too...and a little papaya? The hop bitterness can best be described as Saaz-ish...tight and a little piney. The chamomile has that nighttime herbal tea quality to it - it's pretty hardcore in a cask. I wonder if the chamomile lends itself better to a regular cold tap - it gets a little thick after a while.
Palate feel is very sweet and tight, with a heavy wallop of bitterness from the chamomile husks. Pretty hefty.
Yup - this is OK but I think in a regular tap it would do better - chamomile on cask is a little over the top. Interesting pour though.
