UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Not bad, good session beer. Easy to drink, a little bit bitter on the finish. Crisp, hints of malt/caramel. Not too much hops. Standard.

Very lightly hazed amber pour with a light off white head that provided nice lacing. Smell is sticky toffee like malt at first, then some metal, and light hops only at times. Taste was a bright lemony, sticky caramel like malt. Not overly heavy with malt, but not very hopped either. Some nice light finishing bitterness, a hint of metal, a touch of fresh citrus to it. Pretty good, considering I donít generally like the English Pale Ales. Best of the style Iíve had, and I could drink this again.

Pours a light orange golden amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of faint floral hops and funky caramel nuts. Taste is faintly floral hoppy with hints of caramel and nuts. Average.

LinusStick (3223) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2007
A decent EPA. Aroma of slight hops and some caramel but itís hard to pick out. Pour was a nice amber with barely a head. Taste was dry and lightly carbonated. Mostly malt in the beginning with a nice bit of grassy hops in the aftertaste. The flavor was short lived and light. Not terrible, but this isnít the Gooseís best beer.

Kind of a mellow pale ale. Halfway between an English and American pale ale. Nice all around.

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, maybe some orange coming through and some spices. Taste is well balanced between the malt and hops, seems to be a little malty for me, again I get an orange Kool Aid taste. Little bitterness, medium body. Went well with pizza.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Had this beer on 6/23/2000. Aroma is a dry, roasted malt scent. Color is a golden brown with good carbonation and head. Taste malty, slightly sour and bitter. Starting with light body that goes down crisp. Finish is a lightly roasted malt flavor followed by a light hop flavor and good bitterness. Itís smooth, fruity and just plan good.
