On Tap at a White Sox Game. Excellently refreshing considering I thought I was going to settle for regular cheap beer at not a cheap price. actually this beer was free thanks to the gentleman in front of me who said he worked for goose Island and bought my girlfriend and I beers. nice combination of fruits

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 Pours a light copper with a medium off white head that fades fast. Medium malt aroma, caramel, biscuit, light toffee fruit (that fades with the head) and pepper hop aroma. Well balanced malt flavour and dry fruity hop finish

Pours a clear amber colour with a small tan head. Decent lacing, noticeably nutty character but generous on the hops. Mouthfeel is firm and astringent. Aroma is of caramel, nuts and grass. Finishes dry.

Bottle @ thewolfs pre-festival tasting, Kolding.
[thank you, Chris_o]
Pours clear copper with a fine, creamy film head. Aroma is softly hoppy, but not much else. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is also softly hoppy, okay sweet malty, but only low bitterness. Very dull.

Fin (10297) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle picked up from Westholm, Londis, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon consumed this evening 17-05-08 Mid amber thin white head, some soapy hops. Refreshing beer, I agree with the commercial description this is quite english in style, reasonably well balanced bitter/sweet flavours, light fruitiness, just wish it had bit more panache.

WisconsinSteve (5) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2008 does not count
12 oz. bottle. slightly spicy aroma. pours adarkish cloudy orange. a little bitter but not much. kinda like a very light weight IPA. light on the palate but overall a very drinkable beer. nothing to really distinguish it though.

bhensonb (14868) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Medium, lightly roasted, malt aroma. Copper color with a reluctant beige head. Medium bodied with mild, near creamy carbonation. Starts with light, fruity sweetness. Quickly followed by a very decent amount of hop. Flavor tends to go a bit watery, but it recovers. Finish has hints of sweet fruit, some peppery spice notes, and a good amount of bitter. Finishes dry. Seems more APA than EPA, but its very enjoyable.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Draft from the Goose Island Brewery beer stand in terminal 2 @ OHare. Orange in the class with a frothy off-white head that lasted and left light lacing. Sweet & spicy aroma with a hint of citrus. The flavor seemed to have an orange citrus mixed with some malts. Sweet up front with a light bitter ending. Medium body and smooth carbonation. (Rating from 14 Mar 08)
