1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: You guys have been very generous. Bud light with hops. Not much aroma, Thin head, Thin mouth feel.
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a hazy amber color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a quick pace. Sly foamy lace.
The aroma had some soapy sweet malts, slight grassy hop tones, and a little bit of caramel/toffee malts.
The flavor was somewhat sweet and malty. Aftertaste was all about the malts. Finish was malty too.
The palate was almost medium bodied and was somewhat sessionable. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, seemed like an English pale ale to me, it was okay, maybe again. Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 14, 2015
Hazy amber color beer with a beige head. Aroma is herbal with caramel, hoppy. Flavor is sweet and malty with cardboard notes. Body is thin and carbonation is low. Dry short end. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2014
"more like a hoppy golden than a pale I may like this beer better than Mirror Pond. It’s fresh, clean, and well balanced with a generous amount of cascade hops creating an enticing aroma."

Golden clear body is capped by creamy off-white head & nice lacing. Floral hop nose & caramel malt flavors blend in this well-balanced ale. Squizzle (304) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Cascade ale is a nice good micro brew. Sometimes it feels a little heavier than I want it to be because I associate it with summer beer. It ends up being more like lunch then something to wash down lunch with.

A: golden ale with brilliant clarity and a fleeting finger of white foam falls to a cap and rim of the same. Spotty lace.
S: Smells sweet and slightly floral. Very simple and crisp.
T: Nice grain flavor with some bitter tone and good, subtle floral character again.
M: thin with moderate carb. Semi dry finish.
O: really a spot on Blonde with the drinkability I desire and subtly to offer intrigue. Totally wish this was more regularly distro in my area as I would purchase more often.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Semi crisp dry palate. Dry pale malt. Trace of banana. Redisual hop. Insipid orange with a tiny bit of bitterness. Very dry finish. Pretty grim in most departments. WTF happened here Deschutes?
Aroma is yeast, grains, spices and citrus hops. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, an undertone of caramel and a long, medium hoppy finish. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2012
12oz bottle from La Bodega. Kind of a simple, toned-down pale ale. Some toffee and caramel notes in the background but herbal hops dominate the flavor and aroma. Solid beer.

Not sure why some of the low scores. This is what a beer should be like! It’s not trying to push any extreme or play fancy with anything. It’s a wonderful session beer that still has plenty of flavor and hops. Pour is golden with plenty of foam. The aroma gives you a little hops along with the malt. A little more hops thrown in with the taste, following up with plenty of malt, biscut and carmel.
