Description 

While Cascade Pils is inspired by classic European pilsners, this beer is really a celebration of the fresh, local Cascade hops grown by family farmers in the Pacific Northwest.  It has intense aromas of citrus and pine, supported by a medium body and dry malty palate. As you savor that unmistakable aroma and long, clean hop finish, tip your hat (and your glass) to the generations of hop farmers who help us live the locavore dream every day.

This beer makes a great first impression with a tall white head topping a clear gold column of beer. The familiar pine and citrus of Cascade hops are restrained but not so high as to blank out the cracker, hay and touch of honey from the malt. The flavor has a little more malt than the aroma. The bitterness slowly creeps in until it is firm and dominates the dry, crisp finish. It builds rather than simply smacking your palate. The body is medium with moderate carbonation and just a hint of creaminess. This is a well executed idea that gets better after each sip.
