3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a bright white head. The aroma comes across sweet with malts and then faint floral hops and sweet wort like grainy malts. The taste begins with a mix of sweet cherry fruity esters, floral hops and sweet malts. It gets more and more grainy midway and into the finish which helps cover up the bit of esters I’m getting. Decent but this sways to the sweet side for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear pale golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light scattered film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was moderately heavy of a grain malt, a hint of floral and perfume hops and a light moldy yeast with a note of citrus (lemon).
The taste was a light malty sweet with a hint of citrus in the beginning, and then became mildly hoppy with a decent grainy feel and a crisp bitter finish. The flavor lasted a long time following the swallow, with a light grainy bitterness lingering on for just a while longer.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and an almost lively carbonation.
Overall this was a decent representation of this style. It was crisp, clean and slightly hoppy, which made it a very easy and smooth drinking brew... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s clear, glassy yellow on color, highly carbonated, with a healthy, bright white head. It has a very pleasant, slightly sweet and almost fruity fresh grain aroma with only a hint of lagering. I’m really surprised how much I like it. It’s flavor is clean and just like the aroma, with that same slightly fruity grain character, but with a touch of hay-like hops. It’s pleasing on all accounts, refreshing, slightly dry in the finish, but very clean overall and perfect to beat the heat while still offering a very enjoyable flavor. Good job, Goose Island. You impressed me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle consumed while mowing. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale bready malts, light citrus notes, mild bitterness to the finish. This did fit the bill as a lawnmower beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is bread and yeast and light malt. Tastes crisp and carbonated. More breadiness and a hint of citrus (lemon?) overtones and hops. Fine summer brew; nothing memorable.

12oz bottle. Pale golden color with minimal white head, softly carbonated. Aroma is slightly fruity. Lightly sweet with a bit of wheat flavor. Light bodied with just a bit of sweetness. Decent for a hot summer day.

27/VII/13 - 12 Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - bottled: II/15/13 (2013-672)Thanks to Yuang for the bottle!
Clear dark yellow beer, fizzy small white irregular head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, bit sugary, honey, fruity notes, grapes. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: sweet start, bit sugary, tangerines, bit lemony, slightly bitter hops, some citrus. Aftertaste: little bitter, white grapes, grassy touch, pretty water. Not as bad as I had feared.

It tasted like a run of the mill summer beer. It’s beer and I enjoy beer. Refrigerator.

Pours gold. Really lacks any flavor what so ever. Not a great offering from goose island at all.
