Draft. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind as a local bar session beer.

Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Aromas of pale malts and light citrus. Flavors of pale malts with light hop and citrus note. Easy drinker. Actually better than I thought it was going to be.

Yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste is sweet with a tiny bit of hops.

Although not typical of APA's (which have gone over the edge in hoppiness), I liked it. Pours a golden straw with a one finger head that dissipated quickly. Medium carbonation and very subtle citrus notes. In the end, closer to a lager but yet refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2012
12 oz bottle - darker yellow in color. Not much in the way of aroma. I didn’t care much for the flavor. Tastes a bit moldy.

Bottle shared with my father-in-law (thanks JoePeesie!). Pours a pale canary yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is mild of burnt caramel with a touch of pine. Better balance in the flavor with more hops presence. Slight cooked vegetable presence in the finish. Soft carbonation. Light overall and not bad.

Yes, it’s underhopped - being a ’pale ale’, that’s the point, and why I’m rating it very highly. ’Hoppy’ flavor is a by-product of American craft brews, which I find distasteful, & tiring - literally. Great floral flavors pervade this brew. It also has a light citrus flavor (not overpowering Belgian style), & the color is lovely. I was not expecting much more than Chicago Goose Island, but was so pleasantly surprised. Hats off from a very critical beer connoisseur!

Onslow (1130) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Light amber bre with white head. Aroma of moderate malts and light hops. Taste is light sweet malts with a dry finish. Hops are very restrained. Weak. WHile I like lagers, the lagerishness of this one diminishes it. Yeah.

12 ounce bottle bought at binney’s in Bollingbrook, poured a light clear orange amber color, aroams of watered down citrus, light malt, and some hops. flaovrs are the same, light overall, not much flavor, mostly taste of carbonation.

Undermanned and undergunned. Everything, aroma, color, tatse seemed watered down. Its as if you mixed one pale ale with one cerveza. Slight floral hop taste, light body, no finish, best thing i can say it was cold and its 102 and humid here in Chicago.
