2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I ordered this from the tap at a restaurant in Kenosha WI. Pours a darkish color. Not sure what beer the commercial description is aiming for, but it’s not this one. No aroma, barely any flavor -- almost all malt. Not sure I’d try it again.

Nice malts... hops were there too, but not as much as i would have expected. Sort of reminded me of Killian’s with more hops. Pretty good.

Clear amber with a small head and light lacing. Aroma is deep citrus with a deffinate grapefruit taste, my first from this brewery and its a good start.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jan. 23, 2007; 12 oz. bottle. This was the only serviceable beer I could find at Chicago’s O’Hare Int’l whle passing through there recently, and I was somewhat surprised to see it turn up on a shelf here in Upstate NY today. Amber color, nice balance with a tasty, candyish malt profile and some slightly spicy & fruity hops. The brewers were really on to something here, but stumbled a bit with the lightness & watery finish.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Incredibly malty and hoppy aroma, very sweet. Muddy brown appearance. Really malty, not very ’English country pubs’ to me but better actually. Although slightly surprised by the sweetness, possibly some unfermented malt going on here - not sure. Good, although somewhat simple.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
As Goose Island’s 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.

An average ESB for the common man. You can find this at O’Hare at Chili’s, FOX Sports bar/grill. A better alternative than the BMC options. Nothing great, but decent.

A soft yellow with an ivory head. A good body with a normal flavor and bitter-malty balance.

drank this with spicy gumbo and it was the perfect easy to drink ale to wash it down with. I’d drink it again

Slight above average session beer. Nothing incredibly special and nothing really negative going on here either. Mild hop presence mild malt presence.
