This is a very average pale ale. Drinkable and easy going on the taste buds. Not really my thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got this one as a tap pour at GI Wrigleyville. Poured as seen in the example picture. Head was very fine and pillowy, and added to the honey malt and spruce/resin hop presentation. This is what I expect from an APA, and went down very easily. Highly recommended.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Wrigley. Nice clear gold pour with white head. Aroma of very light hops, something slightly metallic and off. Some grain flavors, a shy hop bitterness and a metallic/caramel finale. Palate is well carbonated and has good body. By far the least impressive GI beer I had.

On tap: The aroma consists of is lightly citrusy with a hint of grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head that leaves singe spotty lacing behind. The flavor starts lightly citrusy. The finish has light lemon peel and a grapefruit. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, easy drinking, but a tad on the light side.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a clear medium orange color with a creamy white head. Smelled of mango, citrus fruits, and bready, pale malt. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. Carbonation was lighter than I had expected imparting a relatively smooth mouth feel. I tasted honey-touched cereal grain, caramel, and light flowery hop.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Uncommon Ground. I honestly didn’t like it the first time I had it. But lately it’s become a staple. Pours golden with a foamy white head. Light citrus aroma. Big flavor for a pale, good amount of hops with a dry finish. Bitterness of an IPA. Strong carbonation on the palate. Solid Pale from Goose.
