4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a amber colored ale. Not very aromatic, thin head. Initial taste of well balanced malts and ended with a pleasant but not over powering bitter. Very good.

Medium amber pour with decent off-white head. Aromas of caramel and fruity hops. Somewhat light body and mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Initial taste is slighly bitter or sour, but then the caramel and sweetness of malts dominate from there on. Very easy-drinking brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish golden color with a nice inch of head at the top.
Smells primarily of hops with some light underlying notes of citrus.
The hops, while still present, are a bit more mellow in the mouth; the notes of citrus are a bit more prominant on the tongue than the nose.
A bit watery in the mouth, but a smooth drink. Definately worth multiple purchases.
Serving type: bottle

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I donít really think ísmall batchí when I think Goose Island. This is the flagship beer, rightfully so probably. Kind of thin mouthfeel, fair head, light amber color, roasty malts that are set aside by floral hops. It tastes like it smells, for the most part. Appropriately carbonated. A great session beer. When itís truly fresh on tap, itís practically unbeatable.

35.5cl lightweight brown bottle. Poured a clear deep amber with light gold qd head. Fresh floral peach & malt nose. Bitter citrus malt flavour. Thinnish mouthfeel & long bitter grapefruit flavour. Quite a decent beer but could be crisper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden pour with minimal head and some yeast remnants floating around. Tastes was hard to pinpoint: sort of sweet and fruity with a crisp tingle left on your tongue. Too sweet for my taste but the crisp, spicy flavor is somewhat unique.

3.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Itís dark copper/brown. Very pretty, like the color of clay only much darker. The aroma has something floralesque to it. I donít know if you would use the terminology floral but it is kinda. I like the smell personally. Itís definitely got some mild hop bitterness. Itís got a laid back flavor and a lightly bubbly mouthfeel. Itís not watery but at the same time itís not jaggermeister.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle at Table Rock. Pours a copper color with slight haze and a thin mostly diminishing white head that left light lacing. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt and spicy hops. Light body, not too watery texture, lively carbonation, and excellent light bitter and dry mouthfeel. A slightly above average beer, but for 6.99 a sixer in Branson, MO. this was gold.

A decent beer. Had some maltyness and very little hops. Smooth, not too special, but didnít suck.

Unusual smell, clean, some citrus, caramel malty/raisin. Not the best offering from goose Island.
