COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created specifically for Spring, this aromatic golden lager celebrates the freshness of the season. A combination of hops from Bavaria and Tasmania's Derwent Valley deliver a delicate floral aroma. Combined with a selection of Tasmanian and European malts, this lager has a medium bodied palate and balanced finish. Best savoured with a dish of spring lamb, wild salmon or a light seasonal salad. Serve at 4 degrees Celsius.

OLD NOTES SEP 22, 2004 Standard malty aroma, maybe a touch of that ’delicate floral aroma they speak of’. Golden body, big fluffy white head. Decent body of malt, slightly sweet, few little floral hop hints, although is spoilt a bit by a metallic bitterness. Not too bad.

This is wonderful beer, and a great brewery! They do everything themselves and they’ve been doing it that way for years!

DuffMan (6645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
Golden, clear, decent head. Green hop aroma, slightly floral. Mildly floral hop palate, but mostly lagery malt. Finish is crisp. Refreshing, but not my favourite out of the four seasons collection.

ALLOVATE (2382) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2005
After tasting Cascade’s Summer Blonde, I thought twice before pouring this into the glass. Body was a brilliant gold, with a short dense white head. Grassy aroma like stale hops, with little else. In the mouth the beer was quite floral ( one thing the brewer’s description got right!!! ), but carbonic acid seemed to plague any other flavour from dominating. Notes of leaves, green apples and minimal malt sweetness, led through to a short crisp aftertaste. Little better than any other stock standard Australian Lager.

Yet another weak effort from Cascade brewery. It doesn’t surprise me that they used a teabag full of hops in each batch, but it disappoints me. I suppose if they used any more, you couldn’t appreciate the flavour of the water they use... Perhaps that’s a bit harsh but they really need to be a bit more adventurous.

IJT (40) - Carterton, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2004
The aroma is that of very pungent hops, very pungent. This dominating character makes for a very nice and refreshing brew that goes very well with food, most notably spicy food like a curry. The palate is medium bodied and leaves a tantalising after taste of hops. For some reason the best way to describe this beer is that it is like drinking the colour of darkish pungent green. It also reminded me of lawn clippings and fresh grass.

Clear gold with a big white long lasting head, lots of lacing. Lacking the hops I was expecting. Nice enough but nothing special.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2004
Bottle: Poured a crystel clear, beady gold with a big white head that stayed. Aroma of malts and some lightly floral and citrussy hops. Some very light diacetyl and a very faint fishy note. Dissapointing taste. Too much like a macro-lager, albeit better one. Malty but with a sharp bitterness that seemed out of place. Some herbaceous hop flavour. A quite refreshing, but average beer.

Stew41 (1735) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2004
Copper hue with orange tints. Small head fades fairly quickly. Ho hum nose, doesn’t give much and feels almost largerish. Not shy in the fizz depart, although it doesn’t overpower. Fares better in the mouth than nose - fairly neutral in the ’front half’ but a treak of sweetness with citrus notes defines the finish, along with a nice trait of bitterness. Ok but jeez you expect a lot more for $4.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2004
Pale gold colour with hints of orange, OK head retention. Light grassy, minty hop aroma with some nice marshmallowy malt - not bad. Unlike this brewery’s other products this one actually has a nice, fresh malty flavour that is not overly sweet and flabby. Finish is pretty harshly metallic and bitter but it’s not too strong. Seems like a decent attempt at a half Pils-half Festbier type beer, albeit one made with Australian ingredients. Shits on some of the other Four Seasons beers.
