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.

Bottle. Hazy orange with a foamy off- white head w/ good retention and nice lacing. Sweet malty, citrus hops aroma. Flavor was slightly sweet malt, orange/citrus, with a light bitter finish. Medium body. Overall nicely balanced malt/hop flavor, not overly sweet or smack-you-in-the-face hops.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 oz. bottle via trade with manny57 - Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is pine and citrus hops. Flavor is also hops, but toned down some. Finish is balanced with no astringency. Medium body. A nice PA. Thanks Ryan.

StefanSD (2375) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 oz bottle courtesy of manny57. Thanks. Pours a cloudy brass color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild and indistinct with a bit of grains, onions and herbs. The flavor is lightly hoppy with pine, grains, biscuit and herbs. The palate is smooth and malty. Finishes long and dry with lingering biter hops. Overall: Not bad, its probably best fresh on tap though.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours golden with a small head. Refreshing citrussy hop aroma. Good citrus hop bitterness that leaves the mouth dry. Good and dry.

larsga (7297) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
Medium beige head. Hazy amber body with floaties. Resiny fruity citric aroma with strawberry notes. Dry resiny grassy herbal taste with papery citric notes. Mid-bodied. Faintly sharp mouthfeel. Dry grassy floral citric aftertaste. Not bad, but could use more freshness. Might be old. (0.355l bottle, Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim.)

nickd717 (4165) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 25, 2010
12oz bottle via trade. Pours a bright slightly hazy golden color with a one-finger white head and great lacing. The aroma is floral and citrusy hops, assertive but not too intense for the style. Some sweet malt in there as well. The flavor is a good balance of caramel and pale malt and orangish and slightly ganja-ish hop flavors. The hops are nice and subtle. Medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate. A good but not super-exciting mouthfeel with average carbonation. Solid on-style pale ale overall. Not an IPA masquerading as a pale ale, which I respect. Drinkable.

Bottle, beermerchants.com. This was the first Founders of a night’s tasting of 6. Frankly, I was underwhelmed, as were my drinking companions. Maybe I’ve become used to US micro brews bursting with flavour, but this didn’t have too much of anything, unfortunately.
