3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in a downtown bar in Maryville, Mo. Nice amber color. Thin white head. Hop aroma and dry flavor that comes from the gracious application of IBU’s. Could use a little more malt body, but this is a very drinkable everyday pale ale. A true delight on tap in a faux college town. Love the tap handle of the goose head.

One of the better beers, although not as good as Sierra Nevada or Boulevard.

A nice ale. Not wery bitter but pretty refreshing and a bit more mainstream, it sells a lot, that’s proberly why the brewery says it is the best beer in town, but it is not.

light amber color. lightly hoppy aroma (cascades?) , a little malt in the nose too. nothing overly complex in the body, solid malt backbone with nicely balanced hops. not an overly hoppy APA, but instead it’s a really likeable mild pale ale. i will buy it again.

Amber coloured. Good balance between hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. Slightly fruity as well.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden brew with a lovely cascadey hop nose with some graininess. The flavour is a bit of a let down after the nose IMO, with plain maltiness, some bitterness and a touch of hop. Fairly dry, plain finish. (Bottle from Booths supermarket, Cheshire)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the better ale’s in the midwest. My personal favorite of the Goose Island brews, and one of the better ale’s I have sampled.

No freaking head at all!! This beer is very blannnnddd. The only thing I could say that good about this imitation light beer is that it is recyclable. The taste was not that bad but it is still very bland.

This a quality light bodied beer. Nice copper color. Mild aroma of malt, hops, and a hint of citrus, possibly orange peel. Flavors are dominated by hops with an inkling of malt and caramel flavors up front. Easy drinking.
