Point Cascade Pale Ale
(Stevens Point Brewery)

The folks at Stevens Point were nice enough to send me a variety pack containing all four of their canned releases. This was the one that probably intrigued me most as quality hop flavor/profile can be preserved so well in a can.

 

From the Stevens Point Brewing site:

 

"Point Cascade Pale Ale is handcrafted combining special top-fermenting yeast and a dry hopping process to create this truly classic American Pale Ale. The intriguing character is derived from generous quantities of the choicest Yakima Valley Cascade hops and the finest crystal, 2-row pale, and Munich malts. The result is a delicious American Pale Ale with a signature fragrant hop bouquet and soft malt palate."

 

Here we go...

 

Pour - light amber almost golden in appearance with plenty of tiny bubble floating upwards creating a half inch of thick, bubbly, white head.

 

Aroma - light grassy or hay notes along with orange and lemon, a bit of an iced tea smell and some green, green citrusy hops. Not a huge pungent hop aroma but nice nonetheless. Its balanced by a good dose of caramel-y malt.

 

Taste - light, crisp and hoppily refreshing.  A nice dose of sweetness follows a mildly abrasive hop bitterness. Very light on the tongue, almost like a "light IPA" in mouthfeel. Super smooth going down and ridiculously easy drinking. Nothing off-putting about this brew, just a simple pale ale in a can that provides your mouth with some happiness.

 

Overall - solid brew. Nice hop flavor and ridiculously easy going down. This is a great beer to have in the cooler or in your backpack when you're hiking or playing disc golf. Simple yet very enjoyable.

 

Would I buy more of it? - I think I would. This one and their Nude Beach Summer Wheat. Sheer drinkability makes this a worthwhile investment.

 

Note - Stevens Point brewery also cans beers for Schlafly Brewing and O'Fallon Brewing in neighboring Illinois.
