3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 Bottle purchased at Bacchus, Olney. Golden and hazy, mid to heavy carbonation with small white head & reasonable lacing. Fruity and floral aroma, full of hops. Caramel, toast and honey can also be detected on the nose. Overall sweet taste and a short finish: simple and unexciting but far from disappointing. A nice American twist on the UK bitter style.

Pours a dark yellow with a thin white head. It has a sweet, toasty corn flake aroma with a hint of hops. The taste is of piney hops and a light, smooth, slightly sweet cereal finish. Not bad!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pouted from 12oz bottle. Not what i would expect from Goose Island. Pale in color with a lack of depth or character. Slight malt opening with a hint of hops on the back end. Just not enough flavor here to warrant praise.

Clear copper pour with off white head. Aroma is sweet, biscuity malts. Flavour has caramel, bready malts, light toast, some sweetness. Finish is a touch of piney hops. Okay, but session worthy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma has caramel flavors and some esters with low hop aroma. The appearance is copper with a small white head and not much retention. It is a clear beer. The flavor is toast and caramel and very balanced with a somewhat dry finish. Some bitterness shows through at the end. The mouth feel is medium to medium light with moderate carbonation. Overall it is easy drinking and balanced beer with moderate carbonation. I would like to see a minor increase in hop for a slightly more hop forward bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at D’Arcy McGee’s (Ottawa, ON). Limpid copper body with a thin off-white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with some grainy and brown sugar hints. Its well balanced taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It also carries grainy, herbal, and subtle citrusy notes. Ends with a good bitter finish. Good "routine bitter".

For those who like their bitter, bitter, this is a bit light. Nice light copper color with faint bready malt and light earthy hop aroma. Overall, I call it a "bitter-lite" in style, but certainly drinkable and sessionable.
