The beer pours a golden-red colour with a very thin tan coloured ring for a cap. There is definitely the citrusy notes of the cascade hops, as well as some weak caramel notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour doesn’t live up to the aroma. Some weak hoppy grapefruit notes mixed in with the infamous dishsoap notes. Better than their flagship IPA, but still ’crafty’ as opposed to ’craft’

Cannette 473 ml. 5,4%. Couleur ambrée, mousse blanche. Arôme de malt, un peu d’agrumes, grains. En bouche, l’herbe est discrète mais présente, florale, malt. Notes d’agrume du Cascade. Bien en avant de la Keith’s régulière, belle initiative. Je la préfère à l’Hallertauer.

A mildly hoppy pale ale that is very clean and well balanced. Definitely shows that Inbev can make a quality hoppy craft beer should they so desire. The question really comes down to will it sell as well as their non-IPA. Well crafted bee. I would buy this one again.

Ecco cosa succede a tentare di portare una birra artigianale su larga scala. Non ci si può sicuramente lamentare del discreto risultato anche se non si rimane a bocca aperta. Riapetto al livello di birra italiana venduta nei supermercati questa birra risulta decisamente suoeriore. Discreto aroma erbaceo, birra ambrata, schiuma un po’ carente e carbonazione eccessiva.

From a 16 oz can. Pours a clear orange gold with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of juicy fruit gum. Mildly bitter finish.

The cascade aromas are pretty subtle. Taste is a sweet maltiness with pale caramel notes. The hoppiness is earthy and pretty basic. Appearance is a gold with thin frothy head. Lacking on the hoppyiness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to Sam Adams fancy pint glass, beer pours a transparent dark amber with a white head. Nothing remarkable, and it looks like beer. Aroma is not very intense but carries complexity...caramel, vanilla, lots of floral notes, slight citrus, spices.... Of note though is a faint burnt rubber smell. Taste is decent, good malty backbone with a nice hop flavour and bitterness. It’s pretty subtle. Palate is thin bodied, co2 medium, balanced pretty well. Overall: Impressed, not a bad beer at all. I had no idea this was a big brewery until I researched a bit. Honestly this isn’t bad, could use a bit more hop flavour, but just a bit. Asides from that it’s actually quite nice.

473 ml can from Duty Free, Fort Erie, ONT. A golden amber pour with a billowing, but fast fading, cream head; malty aroma; carmale malt taste with just the faintest trace of Cascade. Disappointing in comparison with the Hallertauer version.
