First Harvest Ale is the exciting result of the very first day's brew at the iconic Cascade Brewery. Cascade First Harvest Ale was the first beer of its kind in Australia, to use wet green hops to deliver a fresh, vibrant and flavour packed ale for a limited time. Swathes of fruit driven flavours with a slight spicy tang on the nose, a full mouth feel comprising rich, sweet malt with glints of caramel before the expected bitterness catches up and takes a long ride home. Cascade First Harvest Ale is a beer that can be enjoyed all year round, but save it for when you have a little more time to savour it.
The 12th vintage of Cascade First Harvest Ale, using experimental "green" hop flowers immediately after picking, has hit the shops in 375ml bottles. This year's hops are named after Tasmanian mountains: Wellington for bitterness, Belmont for flavour and Field, added late, for aroma. First sniff: a breath of fresh country air. First taste: cereal, apricot, peach. Middle: dry, spicy, fruity, bitter. Aftertaste: smoky, smooth, malt. Long may the annual delight continue.
