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.

Pours gold with a reasonable head, heavy carbonation. Aroma is mellow and wonderful hops, very nice. Flavor is less impressive, and pretty well balanced. There are better, but this one is tasty and cheap.

thegreenrooster (3174) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2005
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white haed. Aroma is of fresh,clean hops with a little citrus thrown in there. Flavor is piney hops with the right amount of malts. Easy to drink and even non hops heads could find this pleasing.

BOTTLE: Very light hop flavor with piney finish. Almost sweet. A great summer beer.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 Had this one bottled. Clear, light golden color, thin, rapidly dissipating head. Nose of maple syrup, very slight hoppy taste, thin mouthfeel. RERATE 6/26/06: Hoppiness is seriously understated. This is an excellent example of the type.

Right out of the bottle. I was given one as a test group, because some one else thought it tasted like wet cardboard, or a pine tree. Goes down easy, nice sharp taste and smell, I did not pick out the pine. I will have another tonight, and re-rate as needed.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Light amber with a decent head that stays only as a thin film. Average citric-hop aroma, followed by lovely piney hop flavors, stout enough to please, but not too overpowering for the average drinker. Good beer for a weekend of drinking!

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2004
This pours a light reddish-amber with a thin head and some light but steady carbonation. The aroma is a caramel malt with some floral and piney hopping. The taste is a good balance betwween the malt and hops. Nice dry, bitter finish. Nothing great, but a decent drink.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 23, 2004
12 oz bottle in a Gouden Carolus glass. Medium very clear amber with light bubble action, little head with a lasting dusting of foam...aroma is peachy-piney hops, very fresh and piquant ...body is unfortunately less fruity and drier, to the point of being somewhat low-powered, flavorwise...a touch peppery and smoky towards the dry, bitter finish. Decent but I ain’t gonna write no novels about it...

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Pours a red/amber color, small white bubbly head. Aroma is piney hops. Flavor is hoppy, with a malty finish. A nice session brew.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 UPDATE May ’07: Tried another batch and revised my ratings upwards a notch. The palate has been improved (less carbonation) and there’s more depth to the brew as well. This is a fantastic buy at $9.50/case of 12. ORIGINAL RATING: From a bottle: Very nice, fully-hopped aroma. Beer pours a medium amber with reddish overtones. Minimal head that disappears quickly. Very clean taste with more floral hopping than I dared hope for. Malty background. Not much in the way of negatives to report, except for being slightly overcarbonated for my tastes. A very good beer that will become a regular buy for me. UPDATE 8/13/05: Just sampled this back-to-back with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The Point Pale Ale has a better hop profile in my estimation. Sierra Nevada has a slight edge in palate though. Both are good beers but for my money, the Point variant is superior by virtue of its hop flavoring.
