2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2003 Clear bright copper color, small white head, sweet light malt aroma, kind of nutty. Light malt flavors, some hops noticable in the finish, clean. This pale ale is very light in body and on the tongue, a little watery, otherwise has some good light flavor, maybe a good sesssion beer.

Good malt and a nice hint of spice. Good on a hot afternoon in moderate quantities.

Nice malts... hops were there too, but not as much as i would have expected. Sort of reminded me of Killianís with more hops. Pretty good.

This was a decent offering from Goose Island. Not horrible by any means, but leaves a little to be desired. Nice finish, but starts a bit weak.

Good balance. I liked the sweetness and citrusy hop flavors and aromas, balanced by nice maltiness. Cascade hops and something else I cant put my finger on...a good, relaxing beer.

A good ale. Reminded me a little od Sam Adams, only not as strong of a pecan lager taste. Overall, very good.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Very light pale. Not very hoppy. A light malty aroma. Not very impressed with this offering. The label says that it is an English Bitter, the balance seems more appropriate to that style of brew.

I meant to have this stuff on a recent trip to Chicago but failed. Had a sample from a friendís pint the other night. Letís see...light fruity hops, very smooth and clean. Well-balanced, nice smell. This would be a good all-purpose beer to have a 6 of in the fridge.
