Smells of cereal and toast. Pours clear copper with a thin white head. Taste is somewhat metallic and bland, but finishes with strong malt flavors.

Not bad. Slight English style flavor and a little hoppy too. Not bad. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber in color with little head. It has a mild hop flavor with a hint of malt. This is a very drinkable beer, with a nice balance of flavor.

On draught at the Irish Embassy. Almost no aroma, probably because itís so cold. Golden brown with thin white head. Typical bitter flavours of biscuit, bit of lemon and caramel. Not too bad, but rather boring.

This is an old standby that I've finally rated, since the wife picked up a batch for her everyday drinking. It had a off white head that lasted a decent amount of time and left lacing. It had a slight roast and bready aroma, followed by a slight hop tang. Taste was sweet malt with the tangy hops flowing in almost immediately. More malt showed up immediately followed by a little more intense hops (almost soapy/citrusy but not quite that intense). Beer appeared orange to amber that you could see through with light to moderate carbonation. Good from beginning to end. It's the Goose Island flagship.

12 oz. bottle from local(Iím in Michigan, you can get it anywhere) liquor store. I got this because a friend thatís new to craft beer was hanging out, and I thought this would be good for a beginner. anyways, this poured a darkish amber, with medium off white head, and had a very subtle caramel aroma. The flavor has some hopiness, but also some sweetness on the finish. I am starting to love these "session" beers more and more, really because they seem to be on par with flavor, and you can drink 2 or 3 and still not get into too much trouble. In that respect, this beer is almost perfect. Cheers!

Copper pour with a sweet nose of caramel and malt. Bitter taste that transitions to that malt sweetness at end. Easy drinking.

This is drinkible but I am not a huge fan of pale ale beers. While I can tell this is crafted from a mircro by it quality, it is not exceptional flavor wise. At least this pale did not make my mouth pucker, but too many hops overall. Got to give it credit though for it is a cut above your macro.
