Breakfast Beer Tasting: Iceni Cascade

Now I’ve not had the best of luck with Iceni beers, but I’ve been assured that their Cascade is the best there is. After all, how wrong can you go with Cascade hops?

The basics: It’s another bottle conditioned 500ml bottle that comes in at a surprisingly weak 4.1%. It poured cloudy orange with the very thinnest of heads. The aroma consisted of a whisper of citrus hops.

Taste: Thin. It was like someone had dropped some hops in a glass of water. You could tell there was Cascade in there, along with a little buttery malt, but there was nothing else.

Finish: A brief burst of bitterness.

Conclusion: Very disappointing. Lacking in body and even the slightest complexity, rendered this akin to drinking a slightly bitter fruit drink. One for the dustman.
