One of the better beers, although not as good as Sierra Nevada or Boulevard.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour into a shaker. Not much of an aroma. Hops and malts for an unimpressive flavor. Slight hops flavor at the end. A very crips brew.....make a great session beer. Not very memorable though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is sweet with nodes of fruit and citrus. Has a hazy light amber color with a small white head. Has a very malty character with hints of coriander and nuts. A nice slightly bitter and fresh finish.

Had on draft at Goose Island Brewery, Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL. Dark amber in color with a thin white head that laces well. Taste is roasted malts and caramel. Smooth, Easy finish.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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 finger’s 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.

This beer is barely noticeable. The aroma is non-existent, the color is nothing special, in the taste is average.

This if a very good beer, and is very popular in Chicago. I had it on tap and from a bottle and it is always good.

Much better on tap than in bottles, this is a bottle review. It just doesn’t seem to have anything exciting going on. Certainly a very calm (boring) version of an ESB.
