12oz bottle poured into goblet glass Augustign goblet. Clear and dark ruby color. Lacing covers the surface of the beer. This is an Americanized English Strong Ale or maybe a session American Strong Ale. Aroma is unsugary slightly spoiled fruit maltiness. Its almost a bit barleywine-like. There is a bit of toasted malt. Nothing overpowering but strong. Flavor is sweet dark fruits at first and it fades quickly to an earthy malt with a faint generic hop end. Lightly sweet but unsugary, low hop character, well restrained but strong dark fruit presence. Its like a mini barleywine. Cascade Lakes is 2 for 2 with me, Im always not expecting much but am very pleasantly surprised.

On tap at Bend pub. Pours out a pale crisp copper topped with a white head. Nose is cardboard grass and sweetness. Taste is as the nose but with a good caramel sweetness.

It poured a bright copper color with a beige head. The aroma was of bread, malts, hops and maybe a hint of cocoa. The taste was bready, a little chocolate, some more malts and hops. Nice. Thanks Hayduke!

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is deep amber and has just a little beige ring. The aroma is malty, chocolatey, and syrupy. The first sip brings a lot of grain. Citrus hops add some brightness and zest. Light notes of nuts and syrup. Late I get pine and some kind of spice. Dark fruit and then chocolate syrup in the finish. An interesting beer. It went trough a few style changes and that was fun.

I sense a spice or two, plus caramel and pine. Yes tastes spicy too, ginger & coriander, plum, lemon. The off white head fades quickly amber-brown a little cloudy.

Clear red brown pour some thick head. Aroma of burnt lactic caramel. Tastes the same + some smoke. It is both bitter and sweet, though Id hesitate to call it well balanced. Its sorta lacking in the smoothness department. watery and sticky on the palate too.

From bottle. Amber color. Malty aroma with grassy hops. Taste is also malty with pine and grass hops. Finishes with a nice balance of the malts and hops.
