Hmmm... Very clean tasting. Light hops and malt. Very balanced. Creamy head. A little weak, but pretty good drinking beer.

on tap at the brewery. aroma of cascades, but not overwhelming. nice balance between hop bitterness, flavor and grainy maltiness. has a rather american beery flavor. smooth mouthfeel. not too heavy or too thin. not too many beer wonks like this style, but this one is appears to be above average when on tap. i haven’t tried it from a bottle.

Moderate hops bittering and the brewery’s signature slightly floral hops. Bittering was a tad heavy at the back. A solid and respectable ale.

Nice gold color and creamy white head. Decent hops on the finish. A light beer with some body. All in all a pretty good quaff. Goose Island just makes good beer, no matter what style.

Both myself and my roommate enjoyed this beer, so I’m going to have to disagree with the masses here and stay I thought it was a pretty decent beer I wouldn’t mind having it again. Very drinkable, with a fine aftertaste.

Good going Goose Island. Light flavor with the right amount of hops makes this a good beer to drink.

Liked this beer, not anything special, just a good blonde ale. If you like blondes, this one shouldn’t be over looked.
