Had this at a fish fry and I donít know if it was the fish or the beer, but they both were great. Nice Pale Ale with an amber color and very smooth finish.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Great amber color, almost no head and what little of it is is gone in seconds. Has a very spicy carbonated taste to it but goes down smooth. Light hoppyness with a good bitter character like an esb. An above average beer.

Solid pale ale. I first got hooked on beer via pale ale and drank Sierra Nevada for years. This beer is comparable to that one. Very drinkable, but not too special. Lacking a bit in hops. Great mouth-feel, though...and nice balance with malt.

Didnít care much for this beer. There was just nothing special about it. Lacking in both flavor and aroma. Not bad, just not great.

Big thanks to footballguy TD32 for this midwest brew. Pours a clear amber color that forms into a medium sized head that faded preetty quick. Smell is the smell of a bitter, pretty good. NOt a bad taste, but pretty light IMO for an English Bitter. A solid drinker though, just nothing special.

Got some malt and slight hops in the aroma.Pours alight to medium copper with a medium off white head.Sweet malt stood out in the flavor.Thin mouthfeel with a sweet finish.

33 cl bottle, Minneapolis. Hazy pale amber colour, malty aroma. Some malt and hops flavour, but lighter than I expected. Still decent but thought itíd be a bit more full flavoured.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a big white head. Aroma is malty, with some spicy hop flavor coming through. Taste is malty, but very accented by the hops. Overall a good easy drinker, but not the best from Goose Island.

drank this with spicy gumbo and it was the perfect easy to drink ale to wash it down with. Iíd drink it again

Drank this at some bar in chicago late into a night of drinking. I remember this to be a refreshing beer that had an enjoyable flavor. I would order it again and recommend it to others.
