Off the tap into a pint glass. Copper color, big bubbles in the half inch head. Smell: Fruity, citrus. Nice. Bitter! A good bitterness though. Grapefruit and other citrus flavors. Light body, crisp, moderate carbonation. A solid ale. I did not find it to be in the style of an English Bitter, but it was still a good beer.

bottle poured in mug, copper color, little white head, medium carbonation, taste aint as balanced as a ESB usually is, caramel malts and mild hops, silk and low-medium bitterness. wouldnt say is bad but is kind of average, besides, it would pass a pale ale.

HourGlass13 (503) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Pours up crystal clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is caramel and toffee. Taste is malty, caramel, and moderately sweet. Light body, dry, soft carbonation. Easy drinking.

Hidden_Pooch (491) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 30, 2016
Pours a clear copper with big frothy head. Aroma is of toffee, biscuit, earth, and mild pine. Tastes of sweet, candy caramel, and mild piney hops. Can’t get past the sweetness, very weird. Has a medium body with average carbonation and the aftertaste reminds me of vegetables. A real letdown from Goose Island.

Matwill (62) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Une bitter qui se prend bien, peu amer, un petit goût de caramel, pas trop malté. Se boit aisément, mais n’a rien d’exceptionnel à offrir.

Beardbeerman (303) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a clear copper topped by a bright white fizzy head, showing average retention and no lacing. Subtle carbonation with medium bubbles. Nose is malty, but grassy at the same time. Almost has a skunky feature. Some fruitiness as well. The same goes for the taste, but the malts are a bit more present and give a nice roasted cereal element. A bit aqueous, the finish brings back the resinous/grassy forth, with some faint bitterness. Nice roasted malts, but the hops are too skunky for me. Cheers!

nybol (1064) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
Hold da op en gang humle. Efter min menind, så nærmer denne øl sig en IPA, den smager faktisk ikke af så meget andet, end den friske smag af humle, bitterhed og næsten helt tør i eftersmagen.

ndburns (54) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
330ml bottle from Asda. Pours clear copper with white head, carbonation very visible. Aroma is summer fruit, malt. Taste is very malty, with fruit flavors providing an edge. Sweet, little bitterness.

Pours clear amber with a white head. Has faint toffee and hazelnut aroma. Good taste, lots of malts. Refreshing beer.

Reminds me so much of my session beer choices in England and I'm chuffed to find it here in the US. A great go-to ale! ---Cheers, Si
