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.

Foxbush (1219) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12 oz bottle Birthday gift The ale poured a hazy gold with a white frothy head and lacing. The aroma was light citrus. The taste was pleasant with some citrusy hops and tropical fruit. The light body ale had average carbonation. I see why this beer is so appealing to broad groups of beer drinkers. It is rather mild in all repects yet very drinkable. The finish was light with no bitterness.

On tap at Little Markís: Pours slightly hazy golden with a two-finger white head. Aroma of cereal malts, corn, and wheat. Taste is very mild, more cereal malts, a little bitterness from hops, but very smooth. Light body, nice carbonation, very drinkable, but nothing that stands out. Very tame beer, but thereís nothing offensive about it. Safe is the keyword. This is something Iíd recommend to someone that doesnít like beer.

312 is a good wheat ale, but itís nothing special. Thereís just nothing thatís different/unusual/innovative about it. Frankly, it seems like Goose Island decided to stay on the safe side with this brew. While itís still a nice beer, itís nothing unlike what youíve had before.

Pours straw yellow. A little haze in the color but not much. Fizzy white head is gone almost instantly with very little lacing. Aroma is wet grass, and a little sweetness. Not much complexity so far. The beer taste surprisingly sweet. Itís a slightly more complex version of the mass produced American beers. Itís hard to pin down exactly what the flavors are because none of them really standout. There is definitely some malty characteristics that I donít typically associate with this style. The beer also feels a little over carbonated. Overall, this beer isnít as bad as I was expecting. Maybe itís because I just got home from working all day and this is the first beer Iíve had in a couple days. Go into this one with low expectations, and youíll have yourself a middle of the road session beer with high drink-ability.
