3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shard with Parksy and Grippitis. Very hazy golden amber. Sweet malty caramel aroma with hints of orange. Caramel backbone with curious flavours of quinine and orange. Not especially yeasty. A little salt in the finish. Not bad, just not what I was expecting.

This is a solid beer, but nothing spectacular as far as Goses go. Aroma faint coriander and some salt. Taste and palate are easy and sweet with slight salt at the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served at the Sam Adams Brewery in Boston.
Moderate head which dies to rim bubbles. No lace. Cloudy with golden color.
Fruity with a touch of caramel.
Sweet flavor up front. Good fruit and mild spice. The body is medium with a slightly elevated carbonation. The aftertaste reminds me of plum. Short lived.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour at first glance can be mistaken for a Pilsner, except for being a shade darker, and with more bubbles. As ordinary as the pour looked, the way the beer smelled was anything but. Even from an arm’s length, there was a sour, floral, and mineralized smell coming from the glass, which intensified when brought nearer. This was clearly not an ordinary Pilsner. The taste stayed true to the style, but was lighter than others of the type I’ve had, which sadly has been only a couple. This was a bit more tame in acidity and salt, and little sweeter. Not a bad taste at all, mind you, just not all that it should be. Light and crisp on the palette, but again softer, and lacking that Gose edge. I don’t mind having had this bottle, and it is certainly different than Sam Adams typical fare, but I much prefer the real German bottle, or that fantastic recreation by Westbrook more.

Bottle. Cloudy gold color with a medium head. Aroma is a touch of funk and not much else. Salty and slight sour almost lemony, not much spice though.

600 ml bottle. Pours a murky orange with a resilient white head. Aroma is coriander, oranges. Flavor is very salty, dry, malty, dusty, and corianderish. Finish is lime, lemon, lingering salt. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Alright.

Draft at the Bier Baron in DC. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma was notes of light, watery malts, some salt, dishwater notes to it. Flavor was light water, touch of salt with some light bitter malts.

Meh....flaccid. Was hoping for more sour and less body. Fine beer, tasty even, but not as advertised.
