3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle, a clear amber with a thin head. A strong malty aroma - very nice. Malty again in the flavour with a bitterness in the aftertaste. A solid beer that is very drinkable (as evident from ther number I had during my trip to California).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden hue with a fine head. Hoppy nose with a faint spicy aroma. Malty palate, with hops dominating the flavor, although nicely balanced. Consistantly drinkable, bottle to bottle. In restaurants with a limited beer selection, I will look for this , as it is so widely available.

Bottle. Smells hoppy and slightly fruity. Tastes initially of hops with a little bit of a malt kick after the initial bitterness disipates. Pretty good. I could definately knock back a few of these...

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Nice pour with a great golden color and a decent head. The aroma is malty with a classic "beer" smell with hints of cascade hops. The cascade hops are up front on the tongue with the malty flavor following to balance things out. This is a much better beer than I remember. Maybe my beer palate is changing?
