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.

Wife got a bottle of this, I borrowed a few ounces. Straw yellow color with thin white head. Very light aroma, detect wheat, fruit and spice notes. Taste is even lighter then aroma, pale malt sweetness and grass. Light watery body with medium carbonation. In a word, bland. Iím surprised GI has their name on this, o well.

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.

Yellow golden color, slightly hazy, white thick head. Aromas of yeast and spices. Sweet taste, malts, yeast, some sweet fruits, maybe some bread. Sweet aftertaste, sticky-oily mouthfeel. Light body with medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale, hazy yellow with very little white head. Light aroma, some sweetness and a little hops. Crisp flavor has some citrus and grain. Not terrible.

Sabor suave pero con un marcado sabor a lúpulo. No deja mal sabor al final. En general es sabrosa y refrescante. Bonito color amarillo.

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.
