COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Notre Cascade Spéciale est une «Pale Ale américaine» typique qui offre de riches saveurs maltées et une finale rafraîchissante toute en agrumes.

This stuff is like so many of the Simple Malt hop series: overwhelmingly malty. It’s got a bit of faint citrus going on, but it’s almost entirely dominated by a spicy caramel malt - the same spicy caramel malt as usual. That being said it’s really not that bad, but like most of the offerings in this series it pales in comparison to their Double IPA DH.

Whoa! Puissant «gushing» à l’ouverture de la bouteille! Impossible d’empêcher cette mousse de surgir hors de sa bouteille. Il y a trop de mousse dans mon verre également! Où sont mes essuie-tout? //// Bière orangée cuivrée, voilée d’une multitude de particules en suspension, effervescence moyenne, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre à grosses bulles d’abord hors de contrôle, mais qui se réduit tout de même assez rapidement pour ne laisser qu’une trace mousseuse à la surface du liquide et sur les parois du verre. Arômes de houblon floral et poivré, avec un peu de conifère, du pain légèrement grillé, une touche de caramel, et des notes de phénols de fermentation (clou de girofle, eucalyptus, aseptisant, caoutchouc…). Nez peu intéressant, peu complexe, peu intense… En bouche, pétillement faible sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, pain légèrement grillé, houblon floral et poivré, phénols de fermentation à la limite de l’agréable, alcool mal intégré, esters excessifs… Soit je suis tombé sur une bouteille contaminée, soit Brasseurs Illimités perdent leur temps à brasser cette bière désagréable qui terni leur gamme Simple Malt.

Barely managed to choke it down. In a word....VILE! No Idea where they got the idea that this was anything that belongs in a bottle, glass, keg....etc.

robinvboyer (3259) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
500ml bottle purchased at the SAQ in Ville Marie Quebec. Copper pour, large off white head. Sweet, caramel malts, slight grains, some grass and super earthy hops, with hints of pine. Soft carb and mouthfeel with a medium to surprisingly light bitteness. The finish is incredibly earthy, the hops are slightly piney, and the malts dominate. Disapointing.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Copper orange, very lively off white head. Exceedingly sweet caramel malt profile, soft tropical fruit hops, medium-low bitterness. Not the cascade character I was looking for. Disappointing.

mathieuc (1494) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
500ml bottle fromthe SAQ, best before 11/14 so pretty old I guess. Pours a strong golden with a thick offwhite head that leaves intense lacing. Nose is of citrus and oxidized alcohol, this bottle is definitely old (1+ year?). There are also some esters (or it might be the oxidation) that are reminescent of a Belgian brew. Taste is moderately bitter and offers some more generic citrus and not much caramel (a good thing). Alcohol is quite present for such a "light" brew also. Body is medium, carbonation too and mouthfeel is quite airy. I simply cannot get over the boozy finish, though. Overall this wasn’t bad but it felt like it was brewed in ancestrial times and just too old already.

Bouteille de 500 ml d’ambrée. Arôme de pain/céréale et notes de caramel. Au goût elle est sèche avec une bonne amertume et un arrière goût persistant. Notes fleural et d’agrume en rétro-olfaction.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2014 500ml bottle from a SAQ in Montreal.Pours a coppery hue with a one finger white head.Aromas are mainly caramel malts and a slight hoppy undertone. Also a bit of sweet toffee. Very creamy mouthfeel. Tastes are a bit bready, with some red fruits on the swallow. Also an unfortunate hint of wet cardboard. Overall it?s easy drinking enough, but also easily forgetable. Wouldn’t buy this again.

500ml bottle. Looks, smells, tastes and feels like a single hop Cascade APA. Well done, but common. Worth trying.

cargo150 (775) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bière de couleur ambré avec peu de mousse. Nez intense caramel et de quelques agrumes. En bouche beaucoup de caramel sur une touche d’agrumes, quelques houblons floral, manque de corps, sur une moyenne amertume... Je ne vois pas quesque cette bière a de spéciale...
