1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bright golden orange colour with a white foamy had that doesnít retain. Sweetness of pole malt, a little hop bitterness. Thatís about it. Easy drinking and good to try if visiting the region.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Keg at brewery. Harsh hop bitterness, little else. Similar to Carlton Draught.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 itís still pretty forgettable. Perfect for sticking in the fridge and drinking at a BBQ I suppose.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tried straight from the tap at the brewery after doing the tour and it was drinkable, Golden yellow body with short lasting head. Slightly grainy in aroma and taste and not as sweet as the bitter.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Seems to be the staple tap offering for pubs in Tasmania’s south. Quite similar to the forgettable lager model although the malt weight has been stepped up a notch. I thought the tap version was average but this sample, straight from the bottle, showed the same crappy industrial malts but slivers of sweetness and genuine bitterness made this beer acceptable (just!).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Available only in Tasmania, as are the bitter and the lager. This is by far the best of the three, and one of the best bottled draught selections Iíve yet tried. Standard brassy gold with a foamy white head. Clean grainy aroma with a hint of fruit. The grainy palate has a faintly roasty quality, but a surprisingly refreshing fruitiness to the finish that is almost quenching (it made me think of quince). A pleasant surprise.
