3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours amber with a tint of red with a 1 finger white head; Sweet malt, hops, a little spice to the nose; Floral and pine hops, some malt on the initial taste; Not bitter at all; A clean, hoppy, piney backtaste; A very refresing beerthat I enjoyed. The carbonation was a bit heavy to start with, but I think that may have been the lines at the bar. It did die down eventually. Good stuff!

Itís OK but not really for my taste. A little too citric and bitter. Seems quite carbonated

In my opinion, not Goose island's best beer, but a very good beer nonetheless. Hoppy but actually well-balanced according to type. A good introduction to Chicago's premier craft brewery.

Blah. Bottle might be skunked. Lots of oily head. Looks pretty tasty. Aroma is mild. The flavor is muted. A slightly bitter finish, but over all leaves a clean mouthfeel. Not my favorite.

Bottle. Fizzy medium white head sits atop a orange/amber body, very few bubbles and medium lacing. Pale and biscuit like malts in the nose with a line of fruitiness including (light spiced tea, pear, and mild pineapple). Some (SA) like eartyness, and hint of alcohol in the nose. Very refreshing in an ice tea sort of way. No really assertive hops in the brew, but still tasty. Clean, thin bodied and very drinkable. Nice lingering mild spices in the finish. "APA??" Tastes like an EPA or a bitter to me. Really enjoyed this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear deep orange, lots of carbonation, about a fingerís worth of dense off-white foam leaving behind quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is very earthy and bready, with some caramel and a bit of fruit. Taste is biscuity and hoppy, a bit grassy, with a bitter finish. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good stuff. Not as good as their IPA but still pretty dang good. Poured nice golden color with good head retention and good lacing. Fruity taste, ample carbonation. Definitely a keeper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 355ml bottle. Citrus, grapefruit aroma. Maltiness tasted, and typical hoppy bitterness. A nice beer, though not as good as the Goose Island IPA I have tried.
