5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Simply amazing beer, Tasmanias best kept secret. Mainlanders should be jealous such an offering isn’t available. Beautiful golden hue, with a perfect head and perfect carbonation. Taste of tangy malty goodness, with an hefty aftertaste of grain and good Tasmanian hops. Amazing taste, leaving the northern equvelant xxx ale in the dust. Possibly the best thing is that the label has barely changed since the 50’s, because this beer doesn’t need to keep up with competition, or fads, or the latest and greatest printing and canning technology. This beer is part of life, culture and legend in Tasmania, and it will take a whole lot more then a fancy label to sway its drinkers.

All the rage during the 70s and 80s in particular. Still produced and and nice lager that is probably under-rated. Well worth asking for a Cascade 'blue' when in the south of Tasmania....they will probably look at you like you are insane anywhere else.

Fairly hard to pick up even in the hobart region - used to be all the rage when my dad was growing up. Cascade blue is an average lager - a bit of malt, some hoppiness. Sessionally speaking, its a top drop, a bit more raw than other cascade products - thats why I like it, seems almost pre-CUB days or so im told. cheers

UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 This is a classic, vintage cascade beer. Not widely consumed these days, but still an old stallion. Goes down well mosttimes. No standout but just the right balance of hoppyness and maltiness. Best looking stubby in the world in my opinion.

Tried this at Cascade Brewery available in the bottle and told only available in Tassie, not a big thing but obviously not there Premium Lager a touch more in body than there draught without the sweetness overload of the bitter.
