Bottle 330ml - more of a hoppy lager than a pale ale, thin yellowish colour and no real body to speak of.

Bif (1502) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle- pours a clear straw color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma has that musty Euro Lager tinge, with some malt sweetness. Taste of malt sweetness and bit of fruit. Tangy bitterness and and a lingering aftertaste that is a bit metallic. Light body, fairly smooth. Just another Pale Lager in an ocean of lager beer

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours sparkling. Small head and clear. No aroma as such. Taste is of a lager (which it is?) rather than an ale. No malts. Slightly citrus. If I was on the beach surrounded by bikini clad girls, then maybe they’d take my mind off this beer and I’d drink it without realizing. As it was raining, and I was at home with the kids - I felt the full force of why Australia is a wine, not a beer country.

KeefOz (940) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2012
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a thin white bubble head. Laced poorly but for the duration of the beer. Low carbonation. Aroma of malt. Tastes slightly of spicy hops. Light body. Short spicy hops finish.

bottle. Not a pale ale but a lager, so disappointing from the start, but an ok beer.

davidm (1936) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Pretty boring. Aromas of citrus, hay, and band-aid. Taste is sweet, with average bitterness, and short length. Palate is thin and watery. Yellow, with a head that doesn’t last.

floydian1 (1005) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. Another one of the Cascade beers that is only available in Tasmania. Golden body with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is sweet grainy malts with a subtle citrus hop finish. Clean palate with a medium body and carbonation. Better than most Aussie macro lagers but that’s not saying much.

I get torn between whether this beer is great or whether it is simply ordinary. Today I purchased a six pack for the first time in a number of years and yes it went down well but is it a Pale Ale I’m not so sure... Worth a taste if you are looking for a lagerish style.

Davros (1991) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2011
Pours amber with a small quickly fading head. Nose shows grainy malt with a hint of spicy hops. Very light on. Flavours show some grainy malt with slight sweetness before a very dry metallic bitter finish (POR?). Body feels very watery, carbonation is pretty high.
