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

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a dark copper with white head which disappears quickly. The aroma is honey and grass. The taste is a let down. No real apa flavour here

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
2012 Release, 375mL bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aromas of cut vegetation and a bit of malt. The bitterness isnít heavy but it is stale and harsh. Still, after all the years, reminiscent of nothing more than one of CUBís _much_ cheaper pale lagers with some green hops thrown at it. Light body, average carbonation, shortish finish. Ridiculously expensive for what it is, one of the great cons of seasonal beer in Australia.

pours a clear brown with no head.not much aroma, and all the flavour of a commercial lager with slightly more bitterness. this beer disappoints on so many levels. shame on you cascade for taking a good idea and turning it in to commercial swill.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
2011 release bottle from Mane Liquor. Dissapointment is all I can say. Although I have heard reports of last yearís were bad, I actually quite enjoyed it. This yearís however, I donít. Up front sweet malts with (what some would call) a citric hoppy finish. Barely enough hops there at all. Rather sweet and bland. Would be ok as a sessionable beer if it werenít for the price
