COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cascade Ale is crisp and refreshing. Generous herbal hop character and just a hint of caramel malt create a perfect balance.

On tap. Pours with a lightly hazed golden to orange hued body with a fluffy and lasting off-white head. Aromas are fruity, hoppy, citrusy, pine. Floral and lightly bready. Flavors are light, malty, tea like, citrus. A bit sweet overall and slightly bland. Medium bubbles with a light to medium body.

"Experimental Cascade" - I cannot remember what the difference was but Iíd add my info anyway.

Part of the 9hr epic solo drunkfest in Portland in Nov, 2010. Pint. Bright amber brew, clear, with a small off white cap with spots. Thick caramel aroma, fruits, popcorn and it appears on my notes that I could not concentrate enough to figure out the fruits as I wrote "MAKE IT UP!". Light watery taste, faint bitterness. 4.0%. Bread, caramel, faint fruit, fainter pine, dryness is happening and itís tart. Meh. 6363 11

Regular Cascade - same night. Rating is for this version.

Part of the 9hr epic solo drunkfest in Portland in Nov, 2010. Switching to sampler glasses has not stopped the almost crippling affects of what seems to be eleventy litres of beer. Light orangy amber, clear with a tiny white ring. Smell: cereal, light caramel, mild fruit, orange... nothing much here. Boring as shit. The taste follows the smell in attractiveness. Mellow and mild, grains, cereal, light fruit - very light, lemon and hints of medicinal something. Finishes.

A: The beer pours a rather pretty looking golden amber with a fluffy white head which leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. S: Unfortunately, the beauty doesnít translate to the more important factors of the beer. Smells sort of funky and overly herbal. There are some light floral notes along with toasted bread. T: The flavor is a bit better. Mildly sweet with some bread and hints of toast. Intensely herbal hop flavor with a decent floral quality to it. Mild bitterness, but it doesnít really seem to add anything to the beer. M: Light to medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: Really disappointing from Deschutes. I would pass on this beer.

I think I prefer the more complex Belgian blond style better. This one is really grain tasting to me. Effervescent with stronger malt taste then any of the hops that I cannot find. Pours a nice orange color but is a little blah to me.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Citrus and malt aroma. Citrus and malt flavor. Medium bodied. Easy drinking. Citrus and light earth lingers with malt backing.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Clear gold, frothy white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, floral. Taste is grainy, herbal hops. Very light and crisp. I wish it was hotter outside because this beer would be even better then.

Alphadelic (1769) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A very cheeky fruit on the nose with some coconut water sweetness. Pretty mild from all angles. An excellent daytime beer for out in the sun. Not too dry, not too sweet, moreish and quaffable. The caramel malt is definitely my favourite part of this.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Clear light orange/dark yellow color. Two fingers of whippy/creamy head with good retention and a good amount of lacing.. 3.0 S: Light on the nose. Not really much going on in the hop department, but there is a faint grassiness. No sign of citrus, which is strange for a cascade beer. Malts are light on aroma too, but stand out more than the hops. Caramel sweetness and graininess. 3.0 T: A mix of grainy and bready. A decently strong bitterness, but not too much hop flavor. Perhaps a touch of grassiness. Crystal malts and not much else. 3.0 M: Medium body. Could be creamier and a tad bit too much carbonation. 3.0 D: Iím simply not impressed by this beer. Weak on hops, weak on malts, no sophisticated flavor profile. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-10-2009 03:29:31

Bottle from a Portland buddy. Poured a pale yellow color with some orange notes. Nice big fluffy white head. Good lace and decent retention. Aroma was grassy malts and some bread with just a touch of hops. Flavors were almost pils like, lots of crisp malts, light hop with a dry smooth finish. Extremely drinkable and refreshing. Reminded me of the Terrapin Golden ale or a less hopped 420. Not bad.
