DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
Available only in Tasmania. Just as well really, as it was nothing terribly exciting. Straw yellow, slightly stale wet dishrag aroma, grainy palate. Their draught is sooo much better as standard lager fare.

Orangy gold with a frothy white head. Medium carbonation and body. Sweet and malty. Drinkable but nothing special.

Pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Moderately bitter. Thin bodied and watery. Short dry and slightly metalic finish. Nothing special in the flavour department but a not bad lager. 375ml brown glass bottle.

Fairly hard to pick up even in the hobart region - used to be all the rage when my dad was growing up. Cascade blue is an average lager - a bit of malt, some hoppiness. Sessionally speaking, its a top drop, a bit more raw than other cascade products - thats why I like it, seems almost pre-CUB days or so im told. cheers

UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 This is a classic, vintage cascade beer. Not widely consumed these days, but still an old stallion. Goes down well mosttimes. No standout but just the right balance of hoppyness and maltiness. Best looking stubby in the world in my opinion.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Can only get this stuff in Tassie, and usuall only around Hobart. Unremarkable beer that is by no means offensive but by no means a taste sensation either. Was the brewery's most popular beer 10 years ago but since been well overtaken by just about everything else, including Cascade Draught, which is now the brewery's best selling beer in Tasmania.

All the rage during the 70s and 80s in particular. Still produced and and nice lager that is probably under-rated. Well worth asking for a Cascade 'blue' when in the south of Tasmania....they will probably look at you like you are insane anywhere else.
