can;t say that i have ever tried drinking urine, but if i were to drink it i would imagine it would taste quite a bit like his brew. the warmer this stuff gets, the more it taste like a scoop out of a urinal.

Burnt orange hue, small, lasting head. Malty bread/biscuit aroma. Smooth palate with similar flavor, sweet at the start, a moderate bitter bite at the finish. Sessionable.

It makes me very sad to say that Goose Island is the *only* craft brewer in North American who’s products uniformly disappoint me. The family resemblance from one Goose Island product to another is very consistent - like Bell’s of Kalamazoo, but nowhere near as good. First sip - you know it’s from Goose Island. More’s the pity, because that family resemblance I can only describe as
’malt with floor mop squeezin’s added to it’. It tastes *musty!* I’ve actually tried the Honker’s Ale several times - no dice. I really wanted to find something to love in Goose Island - I consider the American craft brewers to be ’beer Messiahs’ - but it consistently comes in dead last across my tongue. Try Bell’s Amber or Sam Adams Boston Ale, and see if you really think this is better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich amber color, slightly cloudy. Nice fruity aroma. Mellow flavor, mildly sweet with a little hoppiness. Hint of citrus? Pretty good overall, but something’s missing here that would make it top notch.... I don’t know what. For $5 a 6 pack? Hell yeah!

Hazy golden amber poer from tap with good dense white head. Malty aroma with some citrus hop detectable. Smooth palate and good taste with lots of malt well balanced with citrus hops. Citrus in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is fruity, sweet and malty. Appearance is a hazy orange with a small tan head. Taste of orange peel and other citrus goodness up front. Nice carbonation, not too fizzy. A little watery and boring after a bit with a rough finish, but still a nice epa.

Pours cloudy, tastes good, aftertaste leaves a little to be desired... Gives slight cottonmouth.
