Pours a brownish amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, toasted malts, caramel, and some yeast. Flavor is pretty well balanced with the hops and toasted malts, but it seems a touch watery and doesnít have much of an after taste. Wasnít too impressed with this brew.

Pours reddish w/white hoppy head. Not to bitter, not too bad, not too exciting either.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2007
Very nice sweet malt wafts off the rim of the glass. Honey colored with a decent white head that dies quickly. Not a lot of frothiness on the palate, but not flat either. Taste is malted caramel with out a bitter ending. A basic red drinking ale. Easy on the palate, not as good as goose Islandís IPA although.

It pours a small white head, and appears kind of a slightly cloudy copper color. The nose is very hoppy and nice. The flavor is well-balanced, though more to the hops side but in a very pleasant, not overbearing way.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with kramer17801 (thanks!). Bottle labeled BB 031007. Poured a medium and slightly hazy orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel and some citrus. Tastes of toasted malts, caramel, and some citrus. Drinkable but kinda boring.

Draft at Mother Hubbards. Went here a couple of times after work at midnight. I was glad they were open until 4am! Came out coppery amber. Nose is hoppy and lightly floral. Nose reminded me of a pale ale, but more towards American now that Iím seeing this as an English style. Taste is hoppy, floral, dry malts, and light nutty notes. Body is medium and has average carbonation. Finishes with more floral notes, soft citrusy hops and malts notes. Subtle spices as well. Not bad.

Iíve had this beer before a few times...never got around to rating it though. Well, a buddy of mine brings it over, so I thought Iíd give it a rating.

I used to think this was a very solid beer. However, I really wasnít that impressed this time around. Malt heavy, and very few hops to speak of. Slightly let down after almost raving about this beer when I first tried it.

On tap @ Bar Louieís in Flint. Hard to detect much of an aroma... a little hops, but not much else. Flavor was of malt and hops. It was OK... nothing special.

A copper pour with small head. Similar to a an APA. Hoppy aroma with some caramel malt and citrus. Watered down flavors of citrus, malt, caramel, and hops. Just another average offering from goose island.
