Cascade First Harvest (TAS)

Cascade First Harvest is a limited edition ale from one of Australia’s oldest breweries. The Hobart-based brewers’ 2014 edition comes in a vintage style bottle celebrating their 190 year brewing tradition. Tasmania is renowned for its quality produce and this ale sits nicely with that reputation.

My particular bottle is flavoured by a range of 3 different locally grown hops (Macquarie, Brooker & Argyle) picked and brewed on 12th March 2014. It’s another English-style pale ale, but quite removed from the William’s Pale of the last post. This one is a reddish amber in colour and holds a great head. It tastes fresh and young, like the hops it’s made from but there’s a certain complexity too. There’s hints of caramel toffee with a kumquat bitter finish. It really is quite mouth-watering.

There is an ephemeral beauty in a limited edition, this won’t be around for long so go and grab one now. The First Harvest is first class first quencher ……. and I’d like a second!
