COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Point Cascade Pale Ale is handcrafted combining special top-fermenting yeast and a dry hopping process to create this truly classic American Pale Ale. The intriguing character is derived from generous quantities of the choicest Yakima Valley Cascade hops and the finest crystal, 2 row pale, and Munich malts. The result is a delicious American Pale Ale with a signature fragrant hop bouquet and soft malt palate.

Not the best pale ale I have sampled, i though it was watered down for the most part, in comparison, with say, the Summit EPA. Would be a good Ale for those who arent fans of supper hoppy, bitter ones...

auerbrau (3147) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Pale amber hued golden, with a froth of off-white. Delicate aroma of west coast hop tinged malt sugars. Flavor is a somewhat thin-bodied sweet hop sugars, gentle and wafting. The sweet orange cream Cascades meld with light malts. The body doesn’t really bother me, as it’s perfect for drinking and not particularly watery. Not distractingly thin. There are some cheap corn fusels and distant off-notes that hold this one back. But, the nice long parching hop smack, in apple, provides balance. For the price and for sessions, a good choice.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Aroma is light citrusy with a touch of bready caramel malt notes. Color is a clear amber with a thin white head. Flavor is on the light side. The malt is thin and grainy and there is a touch of citrusy hop flavor in the finish. The grassy-grainy flavor isn’t super pleasent to me. Texture and body is light with medium high carbonation. Thanks Jeff, for the bottle. I can see what you mean by almost skunked. I think that is a combination of the citrusy-grapefruit and the grassy flavor.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Subtle IPA bitter on the nose. Light orange in color with a white head. Your basic issue IPA bitter mild taste. Pretty uneventful watery mouth feel. One could, er one did get bored drinking this stuff. Yawn. Didn’t pay much for this stuff, got what I paid for kind of beer.

Earthy grassy notes. A nice hoppy aroma. Copper colored. Off white head. I had my first experience with Point beers back in college in Wisconsin. I don’t remember them being very good. This was a better than average pale ale. I see no discernable flaws here, and would easily order this beer again.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2006
The fragrance of this pale ale is a biting hop one but with an earthy undertone. The flavor brings a unique mix of hops that offers a mild citrus zing that the malts smooth out nicely. There is some bitter/ sour after taste that seems to rise and fall like waves and lasts much too long. Despite the after taste, this is a very nice American Pale.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Mild, not too bitter, but flavorful Pale Ale. Easy drinking. Color is a pale golden with a white head, nose has clear but not over-powering hops. A decent Pale, and worth drinking.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Nice golden color,small white head that had a decent hangtime then faded to leave little behind.The aroma was lightly malty and mildly citrusy with a decent but mild showing from the hops.The flavor was fairly decent but also a little on the weak side.Mild malt coming through with a bit of a citrus side and a mellow bitterness from the hops coming on towrds the end.It’s not exactly a top notch brew but it is fairly smooth and easy to drink,imo it’s worth having a few more especially on a hot day when the usual fare is getting old,and you want just a slight bit more.

This little brewery in Wisconsin does a Pale Ale right. Intense Cascade Hops brings a slightly sweet, tangy bitterness with a great lingering aftertaste.
