2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours bright golden with a 2-inch white head that settles slowly. The ale has a very slight haze and the haze aside, looks like a pilsner. The lacing is very modest. Hints of hops in the nose. Light on the palate. Light body. An unexpected, and to me undesirable after-taste. The unpleasant, but yet unidentified aftertaste lingers. Fortunately, the after taste is light as well. Carbonation is moderate. The wheat characteristics are barely perceptible. This is a light ale and may appeal to many for that reason. I find it a decent summer, quaffing beer, but wish it had more to offer than the pervasive lightness (carbonation, nose, body, and flavor).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Straw color, very nice lacing. Fairly straightforward American wheat with some tanginess to it, low hops ( I didnít notice the Cascades), light body. Refreshing. Recommended if you like the style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Very pale gold, greenish tinge, thin white head. Not a huge aroma, touch of soap on the hop, but really refreshing beer. Bit dullish, little bit of lemon edge to it, more an American wheat than a wit. Not very exciting but very refreshing.

Pours a cloudy golden color. Not quite as sour or as fragrant as most wheat beers Iíve tried. Itís a bit more restrained. Good accompaniment to food.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Pale yellow with a thin white film. Faint citrus and yeast, some boring malt, lots of pondwater. Bloody hell. Rank. As the commercial description says, "not like any other Goose Island beer". Most of them are decent, some superb. This however was not either.
