4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The Goose is Loose in Connecticut, finally! My salesmen have been taunting me with the Goose Island beers for over a year now, and as of May 1st theyíve finally been released. Just today we received our first shipment which included this little gem, the 312 Urban Wheat Ale.
Despite its appearance in the picture, the 312 pours a light straw shade of yellow, with a bright white one finger foam on top. As the foam recedes, a small amount of lacing remains.On the nose, the 312 is a light crisp combination of malts, wheat, citrus, and just a touch of soft hops.
The Goose 312 drinks somewhere between a crisp summer ale and a soft American wheat ale. The body is light and easy drinking, thereís a subtle hint of hops, just a little sweetness, and nice lingering finish.
This is the first time Iíve had the Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat ale, and Iím definitely a fan. Where I come from we do our best to keep the freezer full of geese, but now that Goose Island is available in Connecticut, the hunt is going to be a lot easier.

Bottle from The Beer Cellar October 2013. Hazy yellow colour with a modest amount of foam. Aroma is also modest with some grain coming through. The flavour is a bit above average and all round this is not a bad beer.

Bottle from Tesco. Poured a hazy yellow, with a thin halo of white head. Aroma of bread, wheat and very light lemon zest. Yeasty flavours, with some lemongrass and apricots. Finish was very light; some grass and grain.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a very light hazy straw yellow color with some fine yeast sediment in suspension. There is a little visible carbonation as well that helps support it nice foamy white head. The head hangs on well and makes a few cool lace rings near the top of the glass.
Smell: The aroma is light and has a simple clean bready/yeast character.
Taste/Palate: There is a light clean bready/biscuit like malt base with a very light hop bitterness. The finish is snappy and the light body and texture are refreshing.

16oz can displaying proud images of Chicago, but the fine print says it was brewed and canned in NY and Colorado, not sure how it was brewed and canned in both. Brewed in one, canned in the other? Can half filled and sent to the other plant? Either way dated mar 30 of this year. Consumed straight from the can, so canít comment on the appearance. Taste is crisp and has an almost juicy red apple taste. Sort of a creamy texture. Overall, not bad. I remember liking the stuff way back when it was tap only, stopped drinking it when I moved to IPAs, and really never looked back. Either way, this is a decent beer. Iíll drink it if the alternative is BMC.

Bottle sample at a tasting at work. Clear gold, white head. Floral, some citrus peel. Slightly tarty, fruity with delicate bitterness. Light body, plastic aftertaste. Mediocre.

This is one of those retro ratings. This beer just was average to me, nothing that made me hat it or wAnt to buy it again.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bland and insipid, with a heavy dryness. Every swallow was a struggle.
