On tap at Goose Island Vintage Ale House, Balham on 8th February 2017. Amber with off-white lacing foam. Crisply hoppy with tangy fruitiness in aroma and liquid pass, leaving a fruity finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a light body, affording easy drinking.

Purchased a 4-pack of 16floz cans in the St. Louis area for $5. Imprinted on the bottom is "15DEC16," I think this is bottling date an "BF1130" that I think refers to being brewed in Baldwinsville, NY. The quick and short of this review, is that this beer is pretty decent and is a value buy best suited for BBQs and such. Yet, considering its style class as either an American or English pale ale it is lacking in complexity. Nothing wrong with the appearance. The wet rag nose indicates a mundane experience is in store. I know this doesnt sound right at all, but this seems like a session oriented APA. Thin body with bland metallic butter and citrus zest flavors. Ive had this before and will likely have it again, since it works for certain situations. Comparatively it is sub-par.

Very translucent. Pretty light. Tastes like dry biscuits and lime. A bit too much lime for me.

Barreras (1687) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Pours a honey yellow color with a dry citrus aroma. Taste is similar, dry, slight citrus and biscuit flavor. A crisp aftertaste of hops with a light tinge of citrus backbone. A fair pale ale that lacked complexity.

drjoeng (1204) - SINGAPORE - JAN 1, 2017
5.4%ABV. Pale ale. Poured out gold. 10SRM. Nose is sweet and beery. Mouthfeel is watery, light juicy. Palate is more lager than pale ale or APA. Palate has toasted malt flavor with toasted graham crackers, buttered wheat toast, light caramel and some light toffee. Hops are just bitter and there. The maltiness of the body coupled with the subdued hop character result in an orange fruit taste experience with the juicy fruitiness followed by a thin bitter suggestive of peel or pith. Finish is clean and for me very reminiscent of a lager. Overall, more like a hoppy lager for me.

Goose Island has brewed a excellent pale ale. Good malty sweetness with a hint of citrus lightly hopped smooth. Would recommend.
