COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle. This medium-bodied pale ale has a distinctive floral hop aroma and refreshing citrus flavor. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Pretty much falls into the norm of 90% of all the pales I have tasted....not much else I can add other than it’s a pale ale. Not bad.

12oz Bottle No Date This Pale poured a slightly hazed golden color with a smallfrothy white head. Nice Cascade aroma as well as a sweet doughy malty aroma. Body is medium and crisp. Flavor is a classic pale with notes of citrus and hops. Similar to SNPA except less hoppy. Overall a decent Pale I’d recommend.

12 oz bottle: very light, clear yellow gold…strong starched white, dense foam. Sparkling crystal lace. Full, though light, piney aromatics with some sticky resin and sweet caramel. Even flavours – initially bittersweet, but finishes with a pretty good English Ale sourness -> this would be great on a beer engine…an incredible hop session ale with a highly hopped aroma, but subdued just enough in the flavour to be highly drinkable.

Bottle, from Julio’s, Ok nose, citrus, Lemon/lime/orange, aluminum?, little skunk. Yellowy orange color, decent head, kinda fluffy. Just a touch hazy. Bitter flavors, Grapefruit kicks in lemon/lime, little grassy. Little oily, though thinner overall. Bitter finish. Eh, seems like a half ass effort, bites on the finish. Been done before.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Reddish gold body, fizzy white head. Nice fresh cascade hop aroma. Same with the taste. Some creamy maltiness to it as well. A little thin on the palate, but still very good. Very drinkable.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Slightly hazy golden body with a thick, fluffy white head. Big, hoppy nose full of citrus fruit, pine resin, sweet caramel, whole grains, light grasses and a piece of wheat toast with almond butter. Fairly light body but with a nice creamy mouthfeel. The flavor shows a nice, hop flavored Pale Ale that is not overly bitter, but immensely drinkable. Great, crisp citrus and pine that shows fresh, sticky hops. Underneath the great hops are enough whole grains covered in caramel to keep things interesting. The finish is light but the beer does not evaporate. All in all, this is not a mind-blowing beer, but one with great flavor and amazing drinkability. A real winner.

Hazy pale gold color, thin whitish head, sparatic lacing. Aroma is nice and fairly hoppy, clean, sweet, citrusy, a bit juicy with some hop resin and floral notes. Taste is crisp and clean with a favorable fruity balance between the bready sweet malts and the dulled citrus of lemon flavors. Hops do their thing with some milding bitterness of slight resin, flowers and citrusy things. Feel is about medium, with a soothingly smooth slick carbonation and the bitterness is fully in check. A pretty good Pale, perfect session brew or poker night drinker.

Great big cascade hops aroma and taste. 24 IBU but seems much higher. Citrusy notes hide most of the sweet malt. Unbalanced, but purposely. Hopheads treat.

Aroma of sweet resiny hops. Flavor is very sweet with a solid hoppy kick. The flavor is a bit to sweet.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2005 keith-Good clean pale ale. Cascade hops aroma reminds the drinker of Sierra Nevada. Balanced flavor thats not complex at all. 3.2 Eric-thanks to dogbrick for hooking me up with this fine pale. pours a slightly hazy orange hue with a sudsy white head and nice lacing from the start. big notes of grapefruit, orange rind, some light pine and a good malt sweetness. I really like the fruity notes from this beer. I didn’t think cascade hops could have so much character on the aroma. Big citric sweet flavors with nice notes of orange, pine and pineapple. great palate-pillowy and fluffy with a good body. If i was living in my homeland, i would drink this beer on a regular basis! This is the perfect session beer!
