2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2013 batch on tap at the brewery. Made with fresh hops, which is reflected by taste. A strong hoppy aftertaste released strong citrus flavours and hop bitterness. Some lemon and grapefruit. Dark yellow in colour, light bodied with medium carbonation. A better effort for a large brewery like Cascade.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
2013 Limited Release. Poured a clear dark amber colour with a two-finger light beige coloured foamy head that collapsed slowly and provided soap suds like lacing. Medium carbonation as seen by lots of small to medium bubbles forming trails. Aroma of slightly sourish malt. Taste initially of malt sweetness followed by a mild hops bitterness, much like many other macro-brewery lagers. Light body, bordering on watery. Long mildly bitter finish. Worth trying once.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
2013 Vintage. On tap.
Pours a dark amber with a good deal of foamy white head. Nose is grapefruit hops and some floral notes. Taste is lemon, grapefruit, some residual malty sugar and a crisp biscuit finish. Body is watery and thin. The aroma is passable but the taste is just boring and generic.
Honestly, I’m not sure who they’re targeting with this beer. It’s the sort of thing that has potential, but after trying it once I now know to never have it again. They could have built a sort of cult following with this one, but instead they put in their standard level of effort ie. none.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a good amber color with a fair head and some lacing. Aroma of clean citrus with some malt sweetness and fresh grain. Mild citrus flavor with amalt sweetness and fresh grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, smooth with a decent balance but a bit dull. Decent drinker, although I was expecting more of a hop character.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
not much aroma, but what is there is quite malty, appearence is a light red-brown-golden colour with off-white head, taste is close to water, but with some malty flavours and an acidic/bitter floral taste, palate is quite bitter but interesting, overall, not too shabby for a commercial beer, especially cascade.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A-- Poured a reddish gold color, short lived, thin, white head that went to film quickly. Same with head retention. Nothing too exciting, or special about this. Just a little bit of film lacing on the sides of the glass.
S-- Really faint, crisp Carmel apple smell. Smells a lot like the normal macro stuff Australia puts out. Not exciting.
T-- Tastes a lot like the Australian macro stuff. With a little more hops than normal. Suped up Cascade!
M-- Beer improves in the mouth. A bit over carbonated but workable. Hops come more alive in the mouth and sour apple is more apparent in the mouth. Still way too much of the metallic taste that Australian stuff is known for. Long lingering bitter taste in the mouth. Just keep thinking that this is what Cascade bitter would be like if it was mass produced.
D-- A fresh hop for the masses. Nothing really

Bootle- Sounds like a nice beer, but it is rather disappointing, Not a bad beer, just not very interesting
