This beer has a haze that quickly clears up to a lighter amber with a thin, fuzzy collar.

Ginger is bright and spicy up front, with herbal lime behind it and a floral potpourri that's almost like cleaner.

Before I got a chance to dig in, the old lady said it was very sweet. Sure enough, it is...so I guess this is why all the basic bitches kept ordering it left and right. The flavor profile starts with honey and light graham followed by lime, while the ginger is lighter on the tongue than it smells. It seems closer to a mead than a wild ale.

Slick, round, smooth and semi-dry, it's kind of like a weirdly herbal key lime pie that I'm just not into.

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.

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.
