appearance: nice label, per usual from deschutes. served in my wicked hilliards can-pint. acutally a really gorgeous beer - medium orange body, fluffy white cap
smell: light grassy hops, some toasted grain, hay
taste: Hey, a blonde ale. I guess I bought this sixer by accident - what's a guy to do with 6 blonde ales? The deschutes version fits their bill - by all means solid, by no means spectacular. Simple toasted grain, light grassy hops, some caramel, salt.
mouthfeel: pretty big for the typically minimalist style, light bitterness
overall: a fine blonde ale, for whatever thats worth

12oz bottle.... These are probably the first bottles of the Cascade Ale that I've had in a long while... I remember it being much more hop forward...
The brew pours pale orange with a short lasting white head and little retention... nose is pale malts with some minor floral hops and just hints of citrus...
Flavor is better but ... only slightly.. nicely done sorta husky pale malts and decent background hoppiness ... light floral hops and minor citrus...
Easy drinking .. yummy... smooth.. digging it, but the mild aromas and flavors are a bit too light in the middle of winter.

First had: on tap at Deschutes, Portland, OR
Poured a clear golden brown with a small white head that didn't stick around too long. Bready aroma, grassy, herbal hoppage. Similar taste: bready malts, mildly sweet, good mix of herbal and floral hop qualities. Crisp finish. Light-medium body, not extraordinarily flavorful, but still fairly drinkable overall.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a tulip glass.
Pours a clear light orange/yellow with a 2 finger head that thins to a tight lice around the top of the glass. Lemon and fresh cut grass on the nose, earthy, and grassy with a delicious buttery malt backbone. Again buttery malts on the tongue, grassy hop feel, a slight "funk" and lemony zest on the finish. Touches of fruit found throughout, some citrus some pear. Light on the body, full of carbonation, very easy drinking. This is a decent blonde, its got a lot of flavor and average characters. I could only assume that this beer would hit the spot on a summer day at a bbq.

Had on-tap at Deschutes in Portland, OR. Poured a very clear straw yellow color. Thin white head that dissipated quickly, leaving only a ring of bubbles. Had an aroma of light earthy hops and grass. Not much on the nose. Taste was floral, grassy and slightly citrusy. Very crisp, clean and refreshing.
Light in body with hardly any noticeable carbonation. Unfortunately, I just found this brew to be too light in taste and body though it was hardly bad, just not great. Probably would not have again.
