ARH (158) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap into a 5 oz English tulip. The aroma is initially buttery biscuits with an undertone of grass. Eventually, as it settles out, a toast (bread toast) like aroma comes through. It pours a hazy, pale straw yellow with a white head that doesn’t retain very well. A very trace, micro-bubble lace is left behind. The taste is mostly a medium level sweet, with a complimentary light / medium-light bitter. The light body has a thin-ish, oily texture with a soft carbonation. There’s a light spice and grassy with a citrus zest at the finish. Very clean, very crisp, very faint, quick grassy aftertaste.

nuplastikk (4142) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Cask with Nelson Sauvin hops at Half Acre. Room temperature practically..apparently they haven’t invested in firkin jackets. Musty tropical aroma. Earthy tropical, some buttery oddness beneath. A little unrefined. Guess I’ve never had the regular Goss, so hard to fully gauge. Earthy fresh hop feel. Buttery ringwood-esque tastes detract.

Pours like bud. No aroma. Easy to drink. Slightly bitter. Best reason to drink- great price at portofinos in Chicago.

jmagnus87 (2219) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Can poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark gold with 2 fingers thick white head. Aroma of straw and grain with a little earthy herbal hoppiness and something slightly sweet. Taste is light bitter. Earthy and herbal with grains and a little more sweetness in the finish. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Not my favorite beer but very drinkable.

Tap at Half Acre Tap Room, Chicago. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a malty liqourice hoppy palate. Nothing too special for me.
