Bought in the usual Deshutes brown 12 oz bottle.
Nice light amber appearance a small head dissspates real fast though it leaves some lacing.
the aroma while pleasant is not over whelming,,but i like it.
Nice crisp light hoppiness dominates the flavour though there is some sweet maltiness also.
Very good on the palte enjoyable
An exceptionally drinkable beer for me at least I can drink this all night.
NOtes: I read on the Deshutes Web site that this is quite a low calorie beer almost as light as a Bud Light..well its the best "light" beer I have ever tasted..brilliant.

With the name Cascade, I was expecting an overly hopped brew using cascade hops, but that was just my expectations. Not much hop use, as I expected, couldn't smell any, but could taste a little bit. Nothing special to write about. Still, this is a good beer, and will buy more if it is on sale.

This beer pours a thin head but is sufficiently carbonated. You will be very refreshed by drinking this beer. It would be a great beer for the summertime. It has no detectable aroma hops but you get surprised a good dose of bitterness and hop flavor. This is an easy drinker, a great session beer. Good use of hops gives it a earthy/citrus hop flavor but not so much bitterness that you can't drink quite a few.

I feel bad panning a brew that a friend carried with her halfway across the country, just for me. Maybe I got a bad bottle?
Foamy white head, deep bronze color, and ...what the?!? little yeasty floaties! I didn't see that coming.
Fresh, sea-foamy nose, a little floral, but not much else. On the tongue, rather flat. Hops are hiding, if they're there at all. Another boring session ale, I'm sorry to say. Sweet and sour finish. An overall bland beer.

Presentation: 12 oz brown with a simple yet inviting label, purchase before date clearly marked.

Appearance: A creamy bubbly white head sits on top of this golden hued brew that has a faint chill haze to it.

Smell: Sweetish noble herbal hop, faint citric and light malt aromas in the nose.

Taste: Smooth with a light to medium body, a nice malty flavour of grain, sweetness and some breadiness (caramel?) is up front. Then comes an adequate hop bitterness that leaves a slightly lemony / spicy finish with hints of herb in the taste which lingers for a while with some grain.

Notes: A very well crafted ale, excellent use of hops and very refreshing.

Good solid pale ale...refreshing and easy drinking...nice floral hop aroma, and taste..not overwhelming but clean and crisp. Not much malt evident, but it does seem balanced so it must be there. Smells wonderful...taste isn't as strong on the hops as I'd hoped based on the smell, but a good beer nonetheless.

Hazy orange tinted gold color with a small amount of yeast sediment floating around. Pours a thin bubbly white head. An herbal spiciness is noted on the nose. A really nice dry aspect to this brew. Just the slightest hint of caramel malt. Hops are not intense or overbearing in this beer, but they do provide the character. There is just a slight kick provided from the Saaz hops I believe. Easy drinking ale with some hop spiciness.
