3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an almost clear medium gold with lager-like white head. Aroma of apple juice concentrate, some tart berries or fruits, malts and a hint of stable or barnyard. The palate is medium bodied with not much sticking out in any direction. There's a hint of saltiness, a hint of sweetness, a hint of acidity. It's all very mild and nothing is taking charge. The finish is medium-.

500ml bottle. Hazy orange, small head of aggressive small bubbles. Sour aroma of yeast and white bread. Tastes eerily good, smooth lemon, green apple, pilsner malt, salt and funk. Long balanced finish. This is quality !!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1 pint .9 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at about 45 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a clear deep burnished straw gold, like good natural apple cider, and forms a couple fingers of bright white head with good retention. There’s enough carbonation visible streaming through the glass to raise global mean temperature by .01 degree C.
Smell: Pale biscuity malt meets sea salt air and mild musty mildew funk. Some hints of tart citrus waft through the aroma as well.
Taste: The flavor profile opens with a rush of salt and funk, which fades to let biscuit and tart lemon-orange citrus through. There’s a faint touch of white grape and underripe green apple as well, and the finish leaves the citric tartness lingering beside the mildew funk and salt.
Mouthfeel: Light and quite bubbly, this nails the "refreshing beer" feel.
Overall: I can see why this is one of the beers generally recommended as a staple example of the style. This is a nice, well-executed gose, not too overdone on the salt or sour aspects, with a pleasant depth of character. Will repeat.

On tap at Hawthornes. Nothing what I was expecting. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Spice in the aroma and a bit of tartness. The flavor had a hint of lemon with the spice. Lively feel with a nice after taste.
