It’s just no good. Did taste a bit better out of the tin in Tasie, that probably had something to do with the fact that we hadn’t had a beer in 24 hours. Just weak and dull. Why do most Aussie beers try and make themselves so boring? Its like them are not trying to offend anyone. This beer is a good case in point. Peace

375ml bottle into glass. Nose is acidic, almost vegetal. Pale amber colour with two finger white head. Tiny carbonation. Nice mineral water character. Clean light-bodied beer with metallic hop finish. Those CUB cooked vegetables are lurking in the background. Not a pale ale.

From bottle in Sydney. Got mislead by the name, was expecting some lightly aromatic hops as in a pale ale, but got instead a decent lager for refreshment. My mistake

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Comes in a 375ml bottle, not much aroma, very crisp and fresh mouthfeel, some bitterness on finish, decent for a macro lager. I think cascade is a bit underrated for its category.

Pyobon (1019) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014
(Bottle) Clear pale golden with short-lived thin head. Not much aroma: hints of damp cardboard, iron and maybe stone-fruit. Light body, rather fizzy. Unusual taste, but not unpleasant, quite crisp and uncomplicated. There’s a nice balance of fruitiness and subtle sweetness and some crisp but slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. I didn’t enjoy the first taste, but then it started to grow on me, however after a while it seemed rather artificial. Drinkable, refreshing, but a bit odd.

MRMedellin (214) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - FEB 23, 2014
Yellow pale color, stable head, not too much flavor, low bitterness, light body, watery end, not too much to say about this beer.

This definitely doesn’t taste like a pale ale, more like a slightly fruity lager, like some of the marketed "golden lagers". Not very good at all.

Sevenlee (1505) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, slight hints of fruit and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a light fruity finish. Pretty underwhelming.

Dredd (711) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2013
Gold pour with thin head, light aroma slight hop and cardboard aroma. Flavor is sweet with decent mouth feel and mild bitter finish. Would be a good session beer.

mattyhennessy (360) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Obviously heavily filtered. Tastes a lot like a lager, with few citrus notes available. Sweetness is almost indicative of added corn sugar. As a pale ale, it isn’t memorable. But as a standard beer, it is okay.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours bright clear light straw gold with well retained head. Good lace. Aromas of wheat, light grain, melon, grass. Fizzy carbonation, light med body, nutty malt grain character rounding out lightly bitter, with a lively fizzy carbonation bite.
