A sweet aroma with a trace of brown sugar. Itís a very pretty copper color with a large, lasting off white head that laces the glass. It has a smooth flavor with slight traces of hops, a little orange, and barley. Smooth on the palate- a very nice beer! Pairs well with pasta and veggies with garlic/alfredo sauce! :) Actually gets better as it warms-- smoother palate.

Very light flowery aroma with a bit of malt. Slightly murky amber gold color (could it be bc, being from Goose Island?), with virtually non-existent white head. First swig really grabs the mouth; it is full bodied. The taste is lightly flowery, thereís light malt, and the finish is bitter on the edges of the tongue and somewhat on the top(?). Except for the surprising initial impact itís not particulary unique. However, it is very drinkable - thanks no doubt to Goose Island.

Wow, can't believe I'm only the third person to have this. Didn't realize it was this "rare". Came as a sample bottle from a distributor and I had this as the fifth and final bottle from the set. Pours golden brown with a medium white head. The nose is perfumy like it's brother but has some hints of sweetened malt. The taste is also perfumy and somewhat thick and chalky. It's sort of cumbersome and has little redeeming qualities. My friend Vince and I rather disliked this beer. It is OK, but nothing I'd drink more than a glass of in an evening. We split a bottle, so that's fine. Mouthfeel was chalky as previously described. Finish was hoppy and perfumy. Worth trying I guess, but nothing to brag about.

Medium Gold color, medium head. A medium bodied ale, malty and slightly sweet. Smooth taste. Not very hoppy. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly malty. Nice mild tasting beer.

Excellent golden hue, good foam and retention. Very well balanced and the aroma is a light blend of carmel, cocoa, bushy hops, and fruit.
