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.
 Al's Cask Ale is a pretty nice beer.  It's tasty and well executed, if not a trifle mild. I'd like a bit more action, either on the hops or malt side of the equation. Still, when in T.O., get yourself down to C'est What? and see for yourself.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
