Cascade! Really! tastes more like fuggle to me. Considering this is a single hop beer, you would be forgiven for not knowing it had any cascade in it. That said it is a very drinkable tasty beer, but no cascade coming threw whatsoever.

Cunningham (5163) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Citric and toffee aroma. Medium body. Ok balance between bitterness and sweetness. Average carbonation. A bit typical British special bitter with some more citric notes. A lot of caramel, toffee, mild fruity and citric flavor. Fresh and nice ale.

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
500 ml bottle. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear golden colour, small white head. Sweet maltiness, mild hops and a hint of bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is sweet maltiness, moderate bitterness, nutty dryness and sweet hoppiness. You could get more out of Cascade hops. Still quite enjoyable.

500ml bottle from M&S in Bristol (now labelled as "Nottinghamshire Cascade Pale Ale"). A pale golden beer with a large loose white head that leaves nice lace rings. Light aromas of pale malts, grapefruit and pine with a decent citrusy bitterness on the tongue. Medium-light body with a soft mouthfeel and easy drinkability. A pleasant pale ale.
