COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Has also been available bottled.

With all the glow of a midsummer sunrise, this popular golden ale is a thirst quenching and complex beer with a truly broad appeal. Lightly bitter, subtly floral, and buzzing with zesty citrus, soft fruits and spices it benefits greatly from the Cascade hop from which it takes its name.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, - OCT 1, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Amber, lacking a little condition. Slight sulphurous aroma. Fruity with bags of flavour but not exciting on the palate. Must have been a good beer at some point in the recent past.

jjsint (2459) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Cask at the Alexandra Arms, Cambridge. Golden with some wispy white head. Decent aroma with some tangerine and cereal. Taste is bittersweet and has that Cascade punch, but this is met with a slightly sulphurous acidity near the finish. Drinkable but not perfect.

Mr_Pink_152 (4032) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Tried at the Threekingham beer festival. But spelt with a c not a k. Golden colour with a small white gear. Aroma is fruity caramel and hops. The taste more nasty caramel.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
On cask at The Huntsman, Cheadle. Pours amber with off white head. Fairly inoffensive session ale. Not much really going on to excite or disappoint.

ManVsBeer (8809) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Cask @ Ring OBells, Halifax. Golden-yellow with a creamy head. It has a malty aroma and a light session texture.

rlgk (18730) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2012
Cask at The Rake, London. Somewhat hazy amber beer with an offwhite head. Malty fruity aroma, grapes, pears, citrus, lemongrass, notes of grapefruit. Fruity hop flavor, citrus, grapefruit, apples, malty, biscuits, some metal notes. A bit thin and with a bitter hop finish.

Aroma is faint hops and swimming pool. Taste is watery. Something didnt go to plan. Meh, its a blond ale, why should I care?

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Semi crisp palate. Fresh minerally malt, nicely balanced with light orange and tangerine hops. Turns fairly soft in the mid but finishes with a carbonated snap. Fresh clean beer, refreshing. Double the hops and it would be very good indeed!

swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
bottle, nice u.s. hop(citrus) aroma but not as strong as sometimes is, but still nice. golden, cloudy, white foam, very bitter and might be little malt sweetness in the background. medium body very refreshable, but this bitternesssurely make you hungry .... slick feel, soft carbonation, good stuff but could be a bit better
