2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Dark straw pour with smallish head. Aroma is bready caramel malt, Cascadey dry hops, lemongrass, mild black peppery notes. Tastes very dry hoppy, with too much of a hop bill to match the malt bill. Another average beer. Nothing was really offensive here, but nothing really stood out either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from the bottle to a yellowish red with medium off-white head and okay lacing. Aroma is a nice hoppy floral-citrus, and thre mouithfeel slightly carbonated and tingly. Flavor was mostly floral hop, with a touch of malt entering in as the beer warmed.
A nice enjoyable summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow! What a very good value. $5 for a six-pack. Right now, all Stevens Point Brewery products are on sale at my local Hy-Vee, so I’ve sampled a few. The Cascade Pale Ale is by far the best. It’s in a league with much more expensive beers. It pours a dark amber, organish/coppery color, and has a head that lasts a decent amount of time. It also has plenty of flavor, and good thick mouthfeel. If it were always $5, it would be my regular beer of choice. Unfortunately, I seem to have bought them out of Cascade Pale Ale. I wonder if they will order more? Perhaps I should ask.

In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours a dark gold with a medium to thick sustainable head in my pilsner glass. Mild toasted malt aroma. Medium soda cracker-like flavor that cannot mask too much watery metals. This is only a medium-class pale ale. Hop content not very artistic.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a clear orange tinged copper color with a small white head, that does leave some nice lacing. Aroma, citrus hops, pale malts. Flavor, doughy and nutty malt notes, with a light citrus/orange hop flavor very little bitterness on the finish. The body is on the lighter side.

12 oz bottle poured a light orange. Thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is mildly hoppy and somewhat grassy. Not exactly what I was expecting, but overall not to bad.

12 ounce bottle in a variety pack. Light colored with a very small head. Was a fairly run of the mill pale ale. Could have had more hopsy flavor.
