Its a good beer. I had a couple for the holidays. It is more malty than hoppy, but the hops character balances the taste. Smooth, crisp, and delicious cold.

Fukito (1057) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle @ Microbar, november 07. Clear, light copper color with a medium, creamy, white head. Caramel, cereal arome with some toffee notes. Caramel, toffee flavor with some nutty notes and an almond finnish. Medium palate, a lot of chewy malts going on but a bit troubled and without harmony. Rather short aftertaste. A nice, dark, malty pale ale.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Pours a golden amber color with a thick frothy head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, little bit of citrus fruit, and grain. Light caramel taste with a slight bitter finish. Drinkable brew.

Stine (1773) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Pale golden pour; lazy white ring on the rim. Watery honey and maple syrup aroma with light biscuits and sweetcorn. Lots of tepid wheat grass and green tea bitterness in the somewhat timid flavor; some light, zesty lemon notes and wet foliage layering an earthy mulch underneath. Apples, pears, and other easy to ignore fruit flavors lend a bit of liveliness here and there. Sparkly, light bodied and very gracious on the palate; laid back and comfortable. Muted sweetbread, biscuity yeasts and soft dirty hops in a fairly lasting finish; pleasant. Cold and highly carbonated its nice, but not especially fulfilling; cask treatment at room temperature might coax out the lovely british character that seems to rest somewhere in the background here and allow it to really shine.

fidelis83 (2359) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Pours copper 2 finger head, aroma is of hopsand something I cant fully describe...notiiceable, almost white wine like (sileage, if you have ever smeeled the fermented grain that cows eat, you know what I mean, not reallt bad but not the most apetising). Flavor is ..... well balanced, inoffensive but not terribly good. Somewhat sour, too little hops and too much sour malt for my taste in An English Pale. Somehow still very drinkable. I really like Goose Island and I really like this beer, but there is something about it that keeps me from buyin it more often even though it is the most available goose Island variety in my area,

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Dark amber pour, no bubbles, with a large sudsy white head. Very clean faint aroma of hops with a hint of sour malt. Very sweet malt in good balance with the hops, slightly buttery. Some bitter in the finish. The body is very watery...has a little pop to it the in the very smooth crisp carbonation. No stickiness at all. This is one very drinkable pale, a lite version.

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Not a huge fan of this beer. It is somewhat malty, somewhat hoppy, somewhat not good for some reason. Its blend is ok, the complexity lacks, and the flavors are muddled. I didnt find this refreshing but didnt find it terrible either. There are much better from goose island

Poured from a bottle for Thanksgiving dinner. Pours a nice lighter bronze color with a soapy head that dissipates. Smellls of malts and hops. A nice malty taste that fades into a good hoppy finish. Nothing super special about this beer, but I really enjoy it. One of my favorite session beers and the beer that put me on the path to beer exploration.
