sfontain (830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2014
12 oz bottle. Light amber-yellow. Aroma heavily lemon citrus, some malt, light bread/caramel. Flavor toward malt, and shockingly soapy, blech. Okay as a session-ish spring beer but nothing more.

Cybercat (3734) - 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

Bottle in Chicago

Darker amber pour, nice head and crisp, spicy hoppy nose. Decent APA.

jsquire (3641) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Golden color out of the bottle with a lasting, sticky off white head. Light nose with some citrus and pine notes. Some orange and tangerine citrus notes with some white sugar sweetness in the finish. Pretty light drinking for a pale ale. Not bad with dinner but not real interesting as a beer.

3/8/15 (Bottle) - Crisp golden pour with nice white foam head and a good flow of carbonation. Aroma of malt and citrus. Crisp taste, nice texture and feel going down.

zach8270 (3711) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper pour with a puffy white head. Very light aroma, some light hops and a touch of hay. Dry and astringent bitter flavor with a strange fruity and piney note. A bit unpleasant.

Beerathon (1418) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Iím not saying this is great, but it deserves better than the current 48 rating it has on here. Great clarity, bright orange, thin head that remains. Slight pine, decent grapefruit action, malts sweet enough. I dig it.

Clear dark amber color. Not much aroma, slightly hoppy. Good taste with a tart hoppy initial taste. Mildly tart after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is light malt. Taste is a nice malty mouth feel, nice malt aftertaste. Light ho flavor. OK lacing.

Bulk_Carrier (2442) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottom of the can is stamped reads "20Nov14". Iím thinking that is a born on date. This was poured into a pint glass. Keeping it proper. The appearance is a clear bronzed yellow color with a one finger white rocky foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Nice slightly sticky lacing graces the glass. The smell had a sweet grassy ordeal of malty covered hops. Bitterness is mostly subdued but shows a subtlety of slight "pine" aroma. Itís really hard to pick out but itís somewhat there. The taste was sticky sweet through the malts. Thereís a a semi - clean sweet grass aftertaste leading to a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was mainly subdued but still good for its style. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA, a bit maltier than expected but then again I did have one from November of 2014. Iíll look for fresher next time.
