Adequate beer, a little lite for me. Decent malts and hops, but a little weak in the knees.

From the cask at the brewpub: Silky smooth medium-yellow brew with mellow flavors ... light malt, mandarin orange, fruity twist at the finish.

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

Brent (116) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2001
Moderate hops bittering and the brewery’s signature slightly floral hops. Bittering was a tad heavy at the back. A solid and respectable ale.

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

A very flavor full blonde ale. It has the distinct Goose Island flavor that is present in all Goose island brews. Very drinkable and when cold, very inviting.
