3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A classic brewski. Hoppy, but enjoyable to a wide array of people who enjoy beer. A popular brew. A typical pale ale in my book. But a goodie, none the less. Pours nicely in a big muggy mug. Tastes of a little bitter grapefruit, but just a hint.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 MMM, I love this beer, great flavor. I love it in an ice cold glass. I could drink this stuff everyday, and be about as happy as could be. I strongly recommend this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At a bar in Madison, only hoppy beer they had and I was in the mood for some hops. Nice grapefruit nose, typical of cascade. Good flavors of pine, grapefruit and some mild caramel malt. Medium body, high carbination and lively mouthfeel.

I believe this is a classic American amber beer. Lots of notes for something so widespread and popular.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Creamy good head. Nice orange colour. Ok fruity aroma, but averedge taste. Light bitter and moderate sweet. Watary palate and its too fizzy.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 The old standby. Sometimes a little on the heavy side, but most times just right. I think this is the best all-around beer I’ve tried - not always the perfect brew for the occasion, but always very good. Combined with its reasonable price and wide availability, its surely the "Budweiser" (in the ubiquitous sense) of QUALITY beers - the ONE beer I’d keep if I could only have one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Little to no head. Pours darker than I expected - copper. Aroma is flowery and slightly sweet. Taste is smooth with a heavy hops aftertaste. A little sour on the back end. This is a decent choice for a refreshing drink on a hot day.

Clear amber golden body with a medium size white head. Hops on the nose. Taste is lovely and bitter and smooth, slight raw hops, not big in body but very easy drinking.

This is the best beer that I have found that is available almost anywhere and has a twist off cap. Cascade hops experience for the masses. Pours a nice amber with minimal head. Maltiness balances extermely well with hops for a change of pace for something you can find in most places that are worth their salt.
