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

Pours a clear light amber with a slightly red hue. Slight head and lacing that doesn’t linger. Slight nose of pine hops against a sweet background. Light medium body and good carbonation. The taste is laid back with a mild bitterness predominating a light sweetness. Very well balanced with a short burst of mild hop flavor that is balanced between pine and citrus. Clean crisp finish with a slight lingering bitterness that is somewhat tart. A very good session beer for non-hopheads.

Bottle pour. Copper in color. Aroma of bitter hops and caramel. Low on flavor, but a drinkable beer overall. A little bready. Not bad.

ehh. thats the review and the sentiment. not much to write here. its true that its well balanced and a good introduction to the apa which can kill newcomers with overt hoppiness but it just doesnt do much for me.

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

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - OCT 29, 2007
Nice copper color with excellent clarity. Notes of caramel malt.The hops in this seem really low. The only thing English about this beer is that it tastes old and oxidized even though the best before date is neary 5 months away.

grikmok (132) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Poured into a amber colored ale. Not very aromatic, thin head. Initial taste of well balanced malts and ended with a pleasant but not over powering bitter. Very good.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Medium amber pour with decent off-white head. Aromas of caramel and fruity hops. Somewhat light body and mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Initial taste is slighly bitter or sour, but then the caramel and sweetness of malts dominate from there on. Very easy-drinking brew.

Unusual smell, clean, some citrus, caramel malty/raisin. Not the best offering from goose Island.

ReverendMoon (128) - Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2013
It’s a nice bitter with a very obvious bitter nose and palate. Very drinkable. Could easily be made into a hoppy session ale
