I’ve never wanted to rate a Goose Island beer and think about how they are owned by AB, but with this beer, that’s what happened. First it was a nice enough hop nose, bright citrus, a touch grassy. But the malts were dull, toffee and bread but also a touch buttery, lightly vegetal and overall extremely reminiscent of the old Bud American Ale from a few years ago.

glennmastrange (2397) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Great tasting American Pale Ale, Nice fruity melon like aromas and a nice balance between malt and hops. A great boat beer, with a little extra flavor thrown in.

tfontana (76) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle from Foods Plus, Plaistow NH. Aroma is hoppy, slightly resin, herbs. Appearance is clear golden, lightly sparkling, with small white head, poor retention and no lacing. Taste is contrary to aroma--more malty and moderately sweet. Palate is medium body with lively carbonation at the tip of the tongue and long mildly bitter finish. Overall, not a heckuva lot going on but slightly above average.

Not bad to have when it’s on tap along with Bud and Miller. It lacks in the important categories though. Not bad, just not great.

rondphoto (2686) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, white head cover, sprays of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt that quickly acquires a somewhat bitter edge, the edge growing into solid medium citrus hops in the finish. A simple brew, but similar to the 312 Urban Wheat Ale, it does what it intends very well. A solid, drinkable brew.

Cybercat (3832) - Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours clear amber with a frothy and rather persistent ivory head. Aroma is not strong, but has nice malty and hoppy tones. Malty flavor is so-so, but refreshing; hops peak through in the finish. Texture has average thickness and not much fizz. All in all, a good beer for a party or with a meal.

Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale has a thick, creamy, off-white head, a mostly clear, fairly bubbly, golden appearance, and spiderweb lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sourdough bread, a touch of citrus, and yeast. The taste is of those elements, with mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a touch slick, and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and highly drinkable. RJT
