3.2
DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is malty, sweet, berry-ish hop aroma-- certainly not a signature Cascade nose IMO Similar in the flavour department, low bitterness, a little earthy. Almost more British in style, I would never have guessed Cascade is their hop of choice in this brew. Hmmmmm...
