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

Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontarioís LCBO domain Iíve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, Iíve had. So...Pint poured in a random Philly airport restaurant. Pours dark amber with finer of fluffy beige head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Taste caramel malts, bitter malts, some ash on the finish with some lingering bitterness. Generally good beer. In a airport no less. 5 years ago it would all be Bud, MGD and Labatt Blue as the import. weíve come a long way baby. Donít worry about this one Tiki.

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.

Pours a nice golden amber color with a white head and medium lacing. Very little aroma, just a bit of an apple scent and a little malt. Flavor is sour more than bitter with a little aftertaste.

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.

Pours a deep amber with a thick white foam that stays. Mild malty flavor with a slightly thick creamy vanilla mid taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Deep amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Weak nose of candied nuts, caramel, and toffee, but itís pretty frigginí faint. Flavor is mild and watery. I guess thereís some malt there, but it kind of just lays flat on your tongue. It finishes with a bland bitterness. Overall, this beer is pretty tepid. Mouth feel is decent, I guess.
