COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a blend of aromatic rye and a whisper of Orange Blossom honey, our Gandy Dancer is light and sparkling, yet full of flavor. The addition of three varieties of hops guarantees an inviting and complex taste, proving that lighter beers can have character.

Had this on draught at the brewpub in Flossmoor, Illinois. Light copper pour with a faint, malty nose of baked bread, balanced finish. Good.

Draught at the brew pub. Clear golden-orange color with a thick off white head that laced the glass. Smelled predominantly of flowery hops. Flavor was similar. Medium bodied without much hop bitterness. Nice.

#904 On tap at the brewery on 10/21/2006 at the 2nd monthly meeting of the Chicago Ratebeer group.

My notes for this got kinda messed up but from what I can make out it was average with a medium head. Nose some skin fruits and the taste was rye ish.

On tap at the brewpub. The body was medium gold with a white head. The aroma had some apples, honey and a litle hint of the rye. The taste was lots of rye with apples and toffee. Most rye I have ever tasted in a beer. If you like rye, this is for you.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Found some old notes from a visit to Flossmoor Station. Had been so underwhelmed that I never set about rating. Per the notes: Red/orange body with a medium, frothy beige head. Sweet malt, honey, pine hops, touch of rye. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. Flavor was unoffensive but not appealing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 24, 2005
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of malty sweet honey . Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly rich smooth and thick with a lingering slightly tingly aftertaste. Its flavor contained sweet honey malt notes and was very tasty. An above average brew.

Tap at Flossmoor. Small white head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, excellent lacing, transparent, and a golden amber hue. Malty, hoppy, sweet, and honey aroma. Flavor was sweet, lightly bitter, hoppy and honey. Tingly, hoppy mouthfeel. Light-medium body.
