On Tap at a White Sox Game. Excellently refreshing considering I thought I was going to settle for regular cheap beer at not a cheap price. actually this beer was free thanks to the gentleman in front of me who said he worked for goose Island and bought my girlfriend and I beers. nice combination of fruits

Draft- Thai Place. LIght hop nose. Good amber color and light tan head. Hopy flavor with a slight maltiness to it. Fruit flavors in the middle. Not bad.

hohops (226) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a burnt orange/amber, quite cloudy with a thick, foamy head. Aromas of sweetness, vinousy, doughy, malts. Taste is rich, quite hoppy, smooth mouthfeel, hints of citrussy zest, bitter orange and marmalade, orange peel, a refreshing finish. Pretty good overall.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2008
To me this is a perfect rendition of a traditional English pub ale. Low carbination, smooth and easy to drink in vast quantities. As a single pint standalone beer it probably doesnít the legs to be remarkable, but definitely a beer that can be enjoyed under most any circumstances. Cheers.

nittanytide (225) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Poured a cloudy amber, with a small head and just a little bit of lacing. Taste is dry, piney hops. Pretty simple and a little thin, but overall good.

Hazy-to-clear amber pour with a fleeting head, on-tap. There is a little bit of malt and caramel in the nose, but not too much. There is a decent balance of malt and hops, a fair balance of sweet and bitter. There are some citrus notes that are too far away in the background. Iíd try it again, but Iím not going out of my way to.

I didnít particularly care for this at all. The flavor is very bitter and ímaltyí. For a pale ale, Iíll go look to many other brands before I drink this again.

Amber color with little head. Had on draft in downtown Chicago. Good flavor with some malty bitter flavor. Good beer and a great choice if youíre in Chicago.

foyle (224) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance-- pours a cream colored 1/2" head that recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is amber/copper and mostly clear with abundant carbonation bubbles streaming. Aroma-- very malty -- smells of slight cinnamon and a moist dough, such as a warm muffin from the oven, a peppery hop spice is also evident. Mouthfeel-- mostly light, watery, and refreshing. Has a somewhat lager like mouthfeel with a dry finish, although there is some of the fluffiness which should be present in the English Bitter style. Flavor-- well balanced, hops are in the background and subservient to the malt. Flavors include a peppery and earthy hop spice, a rich bready malt (again like a fresh warm muffin, or a fresh whole wheat bread). There is some caramel and just a hint of cinnamon. This beer is not overly sweet and the aftertaste has a lingering citrus rind bitterness.
