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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Best by: 28DEC11

A: golden ale with brilliant clarity and a fleeting finger of white foam falls to a cap and rim of the same. Spotty lace.
S: Smells sweet and slightly floral. Very simple and crisp.
T: Nice grain flavor with some bitter tone and good, subtle floral character again.
M: thin with moderate carb. Semi dry finish.
O: really a spot on Blonde with the drinkability I desire and subtly to offer intrigue. Totally wish this was more regularly distro in my area as I would purchase more often.
