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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice copper color when poured with a pillowy head. Slightly bitter with a bit of a fruity aftertaste. Wife liked it.

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

Itís a nice bitter with a very obvious bitter nose and palate. Very drinkable. Could easily be made into a hoppy session ale

Good, malty APA. Needs more hop or different style? I think their malts keep this beer from being average. Needs stronger head--- they should import a yeast?
