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.

HonusWagner (1692) - Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
A hoppy citrusy pilsner, almost more like an American IPA because the malt is reminiscent of a pale ale rather than pils malt and the bitterness is quite apparent. A good beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - 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 (78) - 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 (716) - 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.

OldMrCrow (2090) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2015
12 oz bottle.

Good looking yellow pour with a nice white head. Hop-heavy nose and flavor that follows, more PacNW than pilsner character. Drinkable enough, but not really what one is looking for in a pils.

BVery (7470) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bomber at home. Clear yellow-orange pour with a big white head. Floral, slightly herbal, and this might have a little too much age on it.

mikedR (1500) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2015
Good, perhaps not best of breed. Overly carbonated. Not as flavorful as was expecting for the relatively high ABV (for this style).

Derek881 (1037) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a rich, lighter gold color with a good-sized foamy white head with good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma had strong notes of pine and grain with floral and straw undertones and a bit of citrus and spice. The taste was a lightly sweet-mostly bitter blend with hops, floral, and lemon like flavors. It was a lively beer with a good fizz and fairly full mouthfeel with a dry finish.

gripweed57 (891) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Bright pale gold color. Moderate foamy white head. Fresh grainy malt aroma. Crisp dry malt flavor has notes of floral hops. Tangy and fruity with a wonderful cascade hop burst in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel and medium bodied. Quite a tasty pilsner.

cblado (271) - Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful bright golden color, slight white head, no lacing. Aroma is crisp grassy hops with some hay and caramel malt notes. Flavor is bitter hops and caramel malt up front, with a great finish. Palate is thin and lively, like a good pilsner. Overall, a great NW take on a classic beer.

Danyel (1291) - Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear, crisp orange with thick white head. Aroma is spicy, tropical, lager. Taste is light bodied, crisp, clear, nice bitter hop finish. Overall, a very refreshing, easy beer. A great pilsner.
