COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While our Cascade Pils is inspired by classic European pilsners, this beer is really a celebration of the fresh, local Cascade hops grown by family farmers right here in our beloved Pacific Northwest. It has intense aromas of citrus and pine, supported by a medium body and dry malty palate. As you savor that unmistakable aroma and long, clean hop finish, tip your hat (and your glass) to the generations of hop farmers who help us live the locavore dream every day. We originally brewed Cascade Pilsner as a special release to celebrate our 26th Anniversary and our Northwest hop growers. It quickly became our fastest growing Full Sail draft beer and our bestselling 22oz. bottle. With that warm consumer response we decided it deserved its own year round six-pack.

HonusWagner (2250) - Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
A hoppy citrusy pilsner, almost more like an American IPA because the malt is reminiscent of a pale ale rather than pils malt and the bitterness is quite apparent. A good beer.

Hazy golden pour with a white head. Notes of citrus, pineapple, pine resin, grassy hops, light oxidation. Decently simple pilsner.

An American craft brewery's interpretation of a classic Bohemian Pilsener but hopped with Cascade to lend it an American twist I guess. Bottle shared with Goedele, handed to her at Billie Craft Beer Fest, where these and other bottles where very generously given to the public as a gift - which I never saw before in Belgium, but anyway. Thanks to Billie's crew, in any case. Thick and frothy, dense, snow white, cobweb-lacing head, very lightly hazy, pure and warm golden colour. Aroma of dried bread crust, dried lemon peel, camomile, herb cheese, cream, wet paper, white pepper, subtle hint of dried mango when warming up. Sweetish, rounded, 'malt fruity' onset, cereally but clean and pure with minerally side notes, medium carbonated for this style. Smooth, supple mouthfeel, proportionally 'full' for this style, leading to a dry, long, hop bitter finish, very floral and a tad dried herb-like, bit peppery with a subtle citrus peel note, refreshing and crisp. Delivers precisely what it promises: a very genuine, all-malt, artisanal and cleverly constructed, balanced rendition of the style that gave rise to the vast ocean of depressing industrial pale lagers - a return to the origins of the style as it were, with an American twist to it without becoming too IPL-like (which I have nothing against, for all clarity). Pleasantly surprised by this, this is among the finest Pilsener I had so far, so I guess its place in the top-50 of the style on this site is justified. Bottle wasn't all too fresh anymore though, I can imagine the orangey qualities of the Cascade being a lot more pronounced when young.

kraddel (9338) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2017
Pours clear yellowblonde, unstable and small white head. Smell is tad fruity, mild grassy. Medium low intensity. faded pale malts. Taste is sharp, tad bitter, medium-intense, pale malts, bit grassy hops, tad fresh, but not overly so. has a bit of stickyness to it, mildly sweet, presumably by the hops. Decent for what it is. Dated 021517, perhaps could have used more freshness

Alusmamuts (2171) - LATVIA - NOV 30, 2017
Golden clear with small white head. Malty aroma with some hoppy notes. Medium to strong hoppy bitterness with slightly sweet malty background. Strong lasting bitter aftertaste.

3.6
geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 18, 2017
Aroma is grainy and hoppy, with notes of bitter grass, malts, pine, lemon, bread, aromatic butter. Taste is light and crisp, with bitter herbs, lemon juice, pilsner malts, bread. Refreshing, well made. Good stuff.

3.6
Idiosynkrasie (8212) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2017
355ml bottle. Crystal clear, bright golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Intense, piney, grassy, slightly citrusy and minimally floral hoppy aroma with a cautious soapy bath salt touch, hints of old lemon peel and young conifers. Taste is minimally sweet malty, dry, piney, slightly citrusy and minimally grassy hoppy, hints of lemon peel, a touch of mandarine, fresh coniferous wood; oily texture, lasting hoppy finish. Very clean, superbly hopped, coherent and concordant malty basis. Maintains the Pilsener character by avoidance of drifting into hoppy regions too citrusy or fruity or something.

3.5

Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma is floral and grassy with a slight skunk. Taste is light sweet and light bitter.
