A cracking all-rounder of an ale: refreshing, tart and punch-packing, able to be drunk all night, and a winner with a host of food options. Spanner.

Boring lager passing itself off as a pale ale, only redeeming quality is that this beer is well hopped for bitterness and aroma, as with many cascade products. more like a czech pilzner than a pale ale.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2004 This beer pisses me off because people always tell me how they like "pale ales" and cite Cascade as their favourite. I politely point out that it is not a pale ale at all but I really want to smack them over the head. Anyway... I always thought this was bad but I had it on tap and it was OK. Quite similar to Cascade Premium on tap - lightly malty and lacking the metallic bitterness that most megalagers have. Might drink it again soon. RR: I had it again and it was pretty bad. Don't know how I thought it could compete with their Premium - funky fruit and metal mostly.

This beer is refreshing enough, fresh aroma, supporting malt with a sturt hoppy finish finishing with a lingering bitterness. Not a bad lager, it stumbles against coopers though, but is superior to cascade draught. a beer you can drink and drink and drink and drink.....cheers

Nothing special about this beer. Its easy drinking but without any great flavour.

Poor head retention but decent lacing, very slight floral aroma, medium bitterness but overall it wasn't too bad.

A good pale that falls just short of the Coopers equivalent. Tends to lose head and in my view there are better Cascade beers. However for those keen on pale, always seems to get a good wrap. Widely available on tap and very drinkable on those occasional stinking hot Tassie afternoons.

This has to be the most confusing beer I have ever had. My cricket club sells it in cans and stubbies and sometimes it tastes magnificent and one is never enough. Sometimes it tastes rancid and dirty. Nice on tap if your local has it.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2003 A good beer on tap, full body and quite smooth. Unfortuately for me being a taswegian, not as good as coopers sparkling.

Many years ago my good mate SBgoodDave and I sat down and agreed that this was a pretty good drop. Now, either through affluence or education we probably would not think the same thing. Perhaps the local beer industry is also to blame, as while the ABV has been kept constant I question whether the malt:sugar ratio has been maintained. Now this is a thin and pale pretender compared to the older (pre CUB) version. Is it an ale or simply a piss poor lager? Good now for its burpability. Barneybeer.
