Al's Cask Ale
Al's Cask Ale is one of the regular brews at C'est What? in Toronto, Ontario. I had a pint on tap at the pub after a vigorous squash game, when beer was critical. It clocks in at 4.7% alcohol and has a solid 38 IBUs. Al's is a clear, golden-copper colour topped with a thin tan head. A true cask ale, Al's is smooth and creamy with only slight carbonation. Al's has a very mild aroma--gentle, but balanced and pleasant. Likewise, the flavour is mild--hop forward, with a malty, caramel finish.
