2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at an English pub in Monterey, CA. Light amber pour. In general, I like Goose Island beers. Unfortunately I found this beer to be lacking in flavor. All I could really taste was some light caramel flavored malt. The body was pretty light and the carbonation was crisp.

Cold bottle at the Pitcher & Piano, Richmond. Short review, social. Dark amber, hazy, lightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma toffee, light marmite, batter. Body is medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is very buttery with some rosewater, tangy citrus. Pretty average. Looks quite good at least.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Dark copper body with a fluffy white head. Good lacing. Great transparency.
Aroma: Spicy hop aroma that leaps from the glass.
Taste: I get a good deal of caramel and a bit of toast at the end. No bitterness that I can detect.
Palate: Again there is no real bitterness to cut back the sweet caramel flavor so it leaves a bit of sweetness on the mouth after drinking. Very watered down, but not bad...just not completely there.
Overall: It was a pretty good beer but it really didnít stand out to me. I would gladly drink it again but itís just not something I would rush out to buy. I recommend giving it a shot because it does have a good simple flavor profile. Itís like drinking iced tea. Itís better than water but it just feels like itís missing something.
