Earthy hops with some caramel and a slight aroma of baking bread followed by the meatiness of the classic Australian draught lager. A flavour that makes many people recall coming-of-age in Tasmania, while others might call it an old-school draught beer and drink for a little of the retro-cool factor.

Staple of any full-blooded southern Tasmanian. In a country where every state claims their own signature draught is the backbone to society, this one goes alright, so much that I could be blindfolded and pick it like a dirty nose. Good, honest easy drinking beer.

Draught at Cascade Visitor centre. Clean, crisp beer with a decent malt backbone and a touch of bitterness. Easy drinking.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - DEC 11, 2015
4.7%ABV. Pale Lager. Tapped out a gold. 6°SRM. Faint beery nose. Clean. Fresh fruit aroma. Full body. Heavier mouthfeel. Sudsy. Pleasant toast, nuts, caramel. Rounder, softly beery sour palate. Toffee sweet malt finish. Brief bitter hops. Will go on the list for sentimental reasons. It’s just a good working stiff’s dive bar draught. It’s accessible quality, something progressive gentrification of all the workaday staples is making sure you see less and less of. Goes on Favorites List!

Lovely little drop, From my last recollection of having the pleasure (6 months ago) Found the aroma to be extremely pleasing especially beside a nice steak which enhanced the flavor more. Tasmanian s are lucky that they have such beautiful place to live which is complimented with some good beers. I know a lot of people prefer Micro Brewers, for me personally though I do also, yet I can not drink more than 2-3 at a time, if I want to have a good night then I will stick with something like this which is lighter on the palate and on pouring into a glass gives a nice crispy golden look with a perfect head

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Bright golden orange colour with a white foamy had that doesn’t retain. Sweetness of pole malt, a little hop bitterness. That’s about it. Easy drinking and good to try if visiting the region.

Bottle. This is one of the beers that Cascade brew only for sale within Tasmania. It is a standard Aussie-style lager with a golden body and faint malt aromas. Flavour of sweet grainy malts and little else. Not much bitterness in the finish. Medium-light body.

mkel07 (5221) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2010
375ml can. Actually looks okay for a pale lager with a bright gold orange colour and a deep foam head. Looks a lot better than most pale lagers. Aroma is mellow with malt dominating and the flavour is crisp and clean. Mildly bitter.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2010
A pretty standard lager (or draught), whatever you want to call it. Light aroma and light flavour with just a hint of citrus and hop. I like it better than most of the aussie lagers but it’s still pretty forgettable. Perfect for sticking in the fridge and drinking at a BBQ I suppose.
