Light orange, big head that dissipates quickly, hoppy-sweet aroma, nicely balanced pale ale, citrus and orchard fruit, long pleasantly bitter finish. Simple but enjoyable.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2007
On tap at the Clarke Street Ale House. Amber in colour and hazy with a thin white head. Sweet taste with a hint of caramel, spices, nutmeg. Complex and quite nice.

Pours a clear light amber with a slightly red hue. Slight head and lacing that doesn’t linger. Slight nose of pine hops against a sweet background. Light medium body and good carbonation. The taste is laid back with a mild bitterness predominating a light sweetness. Very well balanced with a short burst of mild hop flavor that is balanced between pine and citrus. Clean crisp finish with a slight lingering bitterness that is somewhat tart. A very good session beer for non-hopheads.

On tap @ Bar Louie’s in Flint. Hard to detect much of an aroma... a little hops, but not much else. Flavor was of malt and hops. It was OK... nothing special.

Damn smooth pale ale. Orange in color. I drank these while fishing on the boat. damn tastey, but I was mostly concentrating on catching walleye.

Hazy, copper color, with a tiny head and minimal lace. Inviting, clean citrus aroma. Flavor is dominated by mild citrus hops, but there is a definite malt presence, as well. A sublte bitterness in the finish. Kind of dry, with nice carbonation. Quite refreshing.

Bottle stumbled upon at local grocery store. Pours a rather brownish golden clear beer, with a minimal head. Fruity, biscuity, caramely aroma with some citrus notes. Great body, almost oily in my mouth. Wonderfully hoppy citrus flavor with some grapefruit, more biscuits and some caramel. Slightly bitter. Great balance, I think, and easy to drink. I wouldn’t mind more than one of these!

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 English Pint. Poured a burnt orange brown color with thin head and minimal lacing. Smells of hay and dough. Taste?s of bitter and slightly sour hops. Finish?s pretty clean with a decent aftertaste. Not a great beer, too bitter for me.

The first Goose Island beer I tried, and its a very good one. Noticably more hops and malt than the blonde ale, as well as an attractive appearance.
