COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is wheaty, fruity and yeasty. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. A bit watery and lacks body. There is something artificial about the fruity sweetness. 010311

brokensail (12466) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2011
A: The beer pours a slightly hazed bright yellow color with a short lived white head. S: Fairly light on the nose but some definite citrus notes of lemon peel and orange. A decent enough floral hop character is present as well. Sweet bread and wheat in terms of the malt content. T: Much more yeasty than I had expected. Wheat bread is there, but the flavor is quite light as well. Lemon zest and a mild to moderate tartness. Not as much hop flavor as I had anticipated, given the nose. M: Light in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: As far as the Pale Wheat style of beer goes, this isn’t bad, but it’s still not something I’d care to drink again.

Theydon_Bois (12058) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home - Apr ’12. Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Little aroma to this beer, faint wheat and grain, a little pale malt. Taste follows on from the nose with a little citrus and grassiness in there. Light to medium in body and perhaps a little over carbonated. No need to re-visit!
