Pours a deep amber with a thick white foam that stays. Mild malty flavor with a slightly thick creamy vanilla mid taste.

Good amber colored beer with a carmel, malty, sweet aroma. Nice sweet flavor with a touch of nutty and a little bitter to follow.

Pours a amber with no head. Aroma is sweet malt with some darker prune fruit notes. Flavor comes off a bit lighter than the aroma but the fruit and malt is still there. Solid.

I really enjoyed this one, even though itís quite easy and simple. Gentle IPA-character, some yeast and fruits/citrus in the aroma. Well-balanced and the taste is softly bitter. Good!

12 oz. bottle. Pours a light golden brown with a thick, dense, off-white head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and dough. Taste starts out slightly sweet and then follows up with light bitterness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture. Average carbonation with a long, light-bitter finish. It doesnít have any outstanding characteristics, but itís fairly solid across the board. Overall, I would say this is a perfectly fine beer that I would happily purchase again.

I often surmise that if the American Pale Ale was considered the hoppiest version of the British Ale family the world would be a better place. More people would be drinking bitters and English PAs and the scourge of the earth known as the India Pale Ale wouldíve never emerged from its hoppy hell.

As Goose Islandís description says, this is a balanced beer. Unfortunately everything was balanced towards the bland direction. Decent to look at, but a snooze to drink. Mouthfeel was a particular letdown, seemed very watery.

from bottle. enjoyed 3 6 packs thus far. pours a medium amber. modest white head. mild caramel malt and just enough bitterness. Being a Newcastle fan, I prefer lightly hopped ales. itís a nice bitter standard bitter, if not on the slightly watery side. Made it very drinkable in Florida Summer.

Aroma is bready, but itís not a very aromatic beer. Amber colored with a medium off-white head. Not very bitter for a Bitter. The flavor is heavy on bread & toast, with some holiday spices - this would actually make a decent winter seasonal. Some crisp hop notes, but itís more of a malt-focused brew. Fairly light-bodied, and the flavor fades pretty quickly.
