COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, itís a beer thatís densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We donít filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thatís how you know itís unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. Itís not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youíd expect.

A bit of yeast on the aroma. Hazy gold pour, medium head with some light lacing. Itís balanced and refreshing but nothing special. Bottle into nonic pint from a 24 sampler pack purchased at Cosco that is about 3 months old.

surprisingly found this beer in a Turkish kebab shop in southgate quite enjoyed it a really good hoppy beer that has a nice bitter finish that makes it a quite easy beer to drink on a nice hot day

tillmac62 (192) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
BOD 11/23/13. Fairly clear light golden pour with a good head. Well formed lacing and moderate retention. Light nose of lemon with a hint of banana over a touch of clove against a light biscuit sweetness. Light medium body that is smooth. Normal carbonation level with good effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is laid back and a bit weak. Some light tart lemon flavor is predominant with only hints of clove. The finish is clean and somewhat crisp.

Barnoloid (174) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2014
What you see is what you get here. A hazy, straw colored wheat ale with a slight citrus touch. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking - watery and a little bland which does the trick sometimes.

What to say about 312. Not much to say. Better than bud light and better than coors light. Along the same lines though.

Lemke10 (784) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2014
On-tap at the local BWW. Pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow color with a slight bubbly white head. The aroma is weak with grains, wheat, and citrus. The taste is smooth, with a mild grassy grain taste. Not a bad lighter craft brew but really lacks depth in the taste.

On draft. Straw color with little white head. Grassy aroma. Bready taste and very weak. Not a fan of this beer.

This beer grew on me a bit but it is not my style. Chalk one up to the advertisements, I was captured by the attractive telephone handle tap. Very light beer, slightly hoppy. The sweetness grew a little on me but not the best effort. Pardon the pun but they were "phoning it in" with this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
