3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

a slightly above avearge beer thats a decent value. light golden with a quickly fading cream colored head. a slight citrus aroma with a hint of hops. it tastes like you’d expect a mild pale ale to taste like except the extra slight bitterness of cascade hop. crisp finish.
it is a mild beer that my parents could enjoy, but not too average so that i was not completely bored with it.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A light golden color. Light fragrant smells. Tastes slightly watery, with a bitter finish. Expecting more hops and bigger character. An easy beer to drink but not that complex.

Surpisingly flavorful. Nice citrus hint. I drank an Anchor Liberty right after the Point Cascade pale ale and there really wasn’t a significant difference in quality of taste - I sh*t you not. It’s an excellent value. Zeswaft nailed it in his review below.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fine lively citrus hop aroma, very light orange amber color,a quick flash of tart citrus hop and a little sweetness, which quickly faded into a light easy drinking session brew,taste really didn’t live up to the incredible aroma, somewhatunbalanced,but one I would take over Miller or Bud in a heartbeat

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer is slightly above average overall. I would drink it again, but I’ll likely forget any good or bad characteristics of the beer before long. This is not a very memorable ale. It is dark yellow/gold in color with nice head. Aroma is subdued hops mixed with that cheap aluminum smell associated with beers in cans. This one came in a bottle, weird. The flavor is fairly bitter and floral, more pine than citrus in this one. Point’s Cascade Pale Ale is pretty fizzy on the tongue, adding a sharp bitter taste that’s not too unpleasant. For its price (less than $6 a sixer), it’s not a bad deal. 11/20

Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga. - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour, decent off white head. Detect a faint bit of spruciness and citrus fruitiness in the aroma. Flavor has a bit of a citrusy bent to it and is decently tangy. Drinkable. Slight caramel in the finish. Mouthfeel - average, overall - very run of the mill APA.
