My main criticism of Cascade's ales is that their base beers tend to taste fairly similar, which combined with their reliance on lactobacillus, tends to render their beers fairly much of a muchness. This beer has far too much of a limeade quality for my liking.
A - Blonde ale base is evident.
S - Pungent lime slaps the nose, a little honeyed sweetness follows with mild ginger.
T - Tangy limeade. Fairly sour. Too much of a soda flavour.
M - Nothing to complain about.
O - Like their other beer 'The Vine' this beer has fake fruity flavours such as those found in sodas or artifically flavoured foods. Not really to my liking.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ
A: The beer pours a pale golden color with a minimal white head.
S: Just a huge ginger aroma to this one. The lime is almost as strong. There are also some different herbal notes such as basil and mint. A mild vanilla and oak note with light lemon zest.
T: The flavor is almost all ginger. A decent sweetness of honey with some strong lemon and lime notes coming through as well. There is a mild mint and just a very herbal flavor. It's only slightly tart.
M: The body is medium with low to medium carbonation.
O: This beer was sort of strange. It definitely tastes like all the things in the name, which is sort of impressive.

The bar I had this at listed it as "Ginger Lime Honey", but I doubt there are 2 brews from this brewery using those 3 ingredients. Served in tulip. Poured a hazy gold color with 1-1/2 inches of white head that had good retention and moderate lacing.
The aroma was good, it featured all 3 of the named flavors over a mild grain base. The flavors were pretty similar, the graininess of the malt showed through a bit better and for a more solid base for the featured flavors. Lime, Ginger, and Honey (I've met strippers with all three of those names, BTW) all had distinct roles, while melding together nicely.
The body was nice, crisp and dry, and evenly medium. Drinkability was good, I probably wouldn't have more than 2 in a row, but would have this beer multiple days in a row. Your opinion while depend on your taste for the 3 stars of the show. Overall, a very tasty brew from a brewery that's been hit-or-miss for me. A must try if you see it.
