Not sure what to think of this style yet. Poured a pale yellow color with a white head that seemed to have good retention. Some effervescence present. Aroma had a nice bread malt note, some hay. Could not detect any hops. Some mild spice and a unique after taste which may have been from the salt. Easy to drink, and certainly refreshing. Served chilled from a bottle.

undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Confess very limited familiarity with this style, and I sampled it without, at first, knowing or guessing the style. Light and tart, as expected for style, but with a lemon and apricot fruitiness. Good dosage of coriander. Sparkling clear despite a thin coat of sediment left on the bottom of the bottle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold with fine off-white head. Settles quickly with minimal lacing. Doesnít look much like a gose. Aroma is citrus, lemon, floral, coriander. Flavor is mildly wheaty up front, citrus, lemon and floral, fairly sweet, coriander, hint of saltiness, with a mild wheat finish. Tastes closer to witbier than gose. Moderate carbonation, light body and crisp texture. Not really a gose, more of a mild witbier. Still better than I had expected.

12oz bottle. Cap read, "Better Luck Next Time." Golden color, white foam. Aroma of pale malt, sweet grain, and the slightest nose of straw & fruit esters. By the appearence & aroma alone Iíd have to say this was a Pale Lager. Tastes of cereal grains, with hints of simple saline. Finishes with watered down flavors of coriander. Linger mouthfeel of saline.

Bottle at Jamesís 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Smells of grain, not much else. Grainy, nothing else going on. Mediocre.

12Oz bottle poured into a pint glass yellow cloudy appearance, one finger slowly dissipating head, skunky aroma but very tasty. I would drink this often if it wasnít so salty. Iím sure that sea salt will bring your blood pressure up in the long run
