Strykzone (6763) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft at Global Brew EDW. Some haze in this dark golden beer. Smooth malts that were fairly rich. Some earth. A nice little hop bite and those hops were citrus. This is malt forward but the hops make their presence known.

Tmoney99 (13615) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind as a session beer.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Draft at Hop Leaf. Same issues here as with a lot of the other ones Iíve had from GB. Pours a deep copper with offwhite head. The nose is strangely phenolic, cat piss hops and citrus. Really odd. On taste, firm bitterness and a big caramel quality. Really out of whack and I think it may be the honey malt in here. That and the Ringwood yeast...

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Draft at hopleaf... Pours a hazy, semi-cliudy cider brown pour and roped with a creamy white to off-white head... Aroma of ready semi-sweet caramel malt and then pairs with a fruity citrusy but sweet hop profile. A bit fruity and phenolic... Flavors are much of the same with a fair caramel grapey sweetness. Not all that hoppy in the flavor with somewhat of a syrupy mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Not all for me.

bruwery (35) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2011
On tap at Hopcat. I didnít care for this. It struck me as too yeasty, and something feels off. Not what I expect from a pale ale.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Tap at brewery. Orange and smoked lunch meat aroma. Dark gold with a small white head. Sweet malt and vegetal flavor. Malt seemed overly sweet, like most of the GB beers Iíve tried.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tap. Orange and salami aroma. Hazy amber color with minimal head. Sweet barley malt and moderately bitter citrus hops flavor. Different.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Tap and served in mug: Slightly hazy light amber with golden highlights, small but lasting head, spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy, herbal, leafy and slightly onion hop esters, grainy, biscuity, slight caramel and wheat, very perfumy. The taste has twangy herbal notes, slightly minerally, grainy, resiny and even a tad lemony. Hint of honey and caramel with a dollop of peppery notes. The mouth feel is lively, crisp, and refreshing. Solid, an interesting mix of hops with one my favorites (Fuggle) and one of my lest favorite (Summit). Lucky that most of the weirdness the Summit is infamous for does not appear.
