COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While our Cascade Pils is inspired by classic European pilsners, this beer is really a celebration of the fresh, local Cascade hops grown by family farmers right here in our beloved Pacific Northwest. It has intense aromas of citrus and pine, supported by a medium body and dry malty palate. As you savor that unmistakable aroma and long, clean hop finish, tip your hat (and your glass) to the generations of hop farmers who help us live the locavore dream every day. We originally brewed Cascade Pilsner as a special release to celebrate our 26th Anniversary and our Northwest hop growers. It quickly became our fastest growing Full Sail draft beer and our bestselling 22oz. bottle. With that warm consumer response we decided it deserved its own year round six-pack.

Braudog (5978) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Crystal clear and golden-bubbly, as a good pilsner should be. Crisp and clean, this drinks like a summer cooler, then barest whisps of flavor (for our beaten-down American palates) are straw, lemon and pine. Excellent lawnmower beer. (#5970, 5/17/2015)

12 oz bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Right off the bat i smell the cascade hops and clean crystal malts- Pours clear golden with a sustaining white head. Aroma is so clean, crisp, light floral, hops. The taste is grains, citrusy, the malt is so light and refreshing, just what i needed after some heavy beers. Body and carbonation are perfect, crisp and zero flaws. Nice beer.

Aurelius (4606) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pedestrian packaging, standard longneck. Very pale but intense yellow, miniscule almost-white head. Fresh, somewhat candied citrus gel aroma. Refreshing, a little mineral, moderately bitter, a little starchy and generally dry. A little fruity tang. Medium body. Good carbonation. Exceptionally average, nice light summer fare. Publix Liquors, Bradfordville.

onceblind (5232) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Clear light golden with a thick white fluffy head. Earthy orange rind and Pilsner grains on the nose, a bit dry and earthy. The flavor is classic Pilsner--lots of grassy bitter, dry golden malts, dry bitterness and a grassy bitter finish.

poisoneddwarf (1918) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2015
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is latex, bready, floral, citrus powder drink, grassy. Pours clear honey-gold with a medium white head with decent retention; laces a little. Taste is most everything I want in a pils--starts sweet before a nice hoppy bitterness sets in and lingers; light pine and bready malt flavors. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Palate is perfect for style--carbonation average, not harsh, medium body. Really nice beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7370) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2015
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a tiny white head. The modest aroma offers up sweet malts, a touch of cracker and then light spicy to floral hops. The taste begins with a fair load of sugary sweet malts that have a thick edge of biscuit to lightly roasted maltiness. Behind the malts lurks thin notes of spicy and floral hops that have a mild fruity ester note off in the background. Decent Pils but it seems a little thick, sweet and sluggish rather than crisp, fresh and snappy.

malvrich (88) - durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2015
UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner. Best by 02/24/2015 so already a full 2 months past fresh. Fucking Total Wine, man... A: Pours a rich tawny brass color with a half inch fine beaded head which retains fairly well and laces in sheets. Steady carbonation rising.Nice. S:Citrus smack at the start with subtle fruity dough rounding out the nose T: A bland white bread/baguette malt hit opens the taste. Dry bitter hops follow and manage good balance. Alcohol is noticed in the finish and is unwelcome. Herbal hop and flat bread dominate. Not so much fruity as the nose unfortunately however as it warms fruit flavors reappear. Not grapefruit though, more pear/melon notes but OK. Has an off-putting mineral/vegetal taste that lingers. Not too good overall. M: Medium heavy body with a good deal of carbonation to break things up. I think the high ABV does more harm than good. O: A bit disappointed with this considering the great reviews by others. However my six is well past freshness date so probably worth a revisit if I can find it fresh.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 18, 2015
Light aroma: Citrus hops, bready malt. Maybe a little soapy? Citrus, floral hop and bread malt flavor. Herbal lager yeast. Finishes sweet. Substantial bitterness. Nice grapefruit aftertaste.
