3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 355mL. Pours deep amber, almost like apple juice, with a quickly disappearing beige head. Crisp herbal aroma, with a very particular smell that I’m not able to identify -yet I consider it quite recognisable and I’m sure that I smelled it before-, light hops, not too strong. Flavours include malt and hay, together with wood notes (subtly cedar-like). Texture is oily, body is medium but with quite a short finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (473 ml) bought in a Victoriaville grocery store. Clear amber with a small off-white head, decent retention, leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is of fruity hops along leafy notes and mild earthiness. Taste is of caramel malt with mild toasted notes, light fruitiness and mild leafy bitterness. Body is medium. Carbonation is soft. Mouthfeel is moderately fluffy. Fruity finish. It’s not mindblowing, but it’s definitely well executed. The "fruity aroma - rich malt middle" deScription on the can is accurate. Easy drinking. I certainly wouldn’t mind buying again considering low price and wide availability.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber, tan/orangish hue. Firm, off-white head, lacey.
A bit of chlorine/salts from low malt/hops/yeast presence. A lot more mild, (new world vs old world). Expected fruity esters. Malt forward, yet mild crisp, crystal malt, moderate-low strength. Fresh baked bread, toasty. Orange/lemon.
Shampoo/perfumy (honey/vanilla type esters). Chewy body, surprising for lack of caramel type flavors there are present. Moderately high bitterness with a tinge on the side of the palate. Extremely drinkable. Spot on for an AM interpretation of an English Best Bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015/11/10 - Pours a clear copper colour, with a foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves no lacing. Aroma is caramel, biscuit, citrus, wild berries and herbal notes. Taste is slightly sweet and mildly bitter with herbal hops, light caramel, light citrus, mild roast and cracker. Mouthfeel is light to medium with sharp carbonation and a sharp, drying finish. Pretty ho hum. Not terrible, but certainly not exceptional or creative.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle. Pours on a poor light copper head, non-persistent. A bit of diacetyl and herbal in aroma. Light bodied and a little of metallic taste in the first drink. Caramel and herbal tastes. Average beer.

355ml bottle. Pours an amber colour with an off white head which dissipates quickly. Pleasant recognisably American aroma. Fruity hops, slightly herbal and a sherbet like sweetness. Medium sweet taste with light bitterness. Very easily drinkable and pleasantly satisfying ale. Quite good.

Rating #1252 - 15.09.2014. On tap at Keg N Cork growler bar. Clear golden pour with a thick, frothy white foam that seems to go on forever. Taste is quite bland, bitter malts, honey and very creamy. Finish is quite smooth, rather enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Appearance- a crystal clear light copper color with a medium white head. Aroma- full of malt with some fruit in the background. Taste- a really good blend of caramel and malt with hops giving it a nice full flavor. Another really good offering from Goose Island.
