Hazy bronze colour with thin white head. Mild hop tatse but finish with slight metalic mouthfeel. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
This is a tasty, satisfying, solid ale. It is amber with a thin offi-white head that dissipates steadily. The aroma is malty grain, yeasty dough, and a hint of sawdust and pine. The taste has both malt and hops noticeable, with some sweetness and bitterness, a somewhat bitter finish before a nice grain aftertaste. The flavours improve and rellow blend together nicely after the first couple tastes and it’s great to drink over time. Ultimately, it’s a solid, smooth, tasty, easily drinkable beer with a solid ale character. The taste is similar to a good English bitter but with a slightly less rich/complex malt character and slightly more hop character. pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2007
10-19-07 bottle. Malty, doughy metal aroma. Deep amber color with decent head. Very carbonated. Medicinal metallic finish which coats the tongue. Drinkable but not my favorite. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft – Dark amber with a creamy white head. Aromas were of soft toasted caramel malt with faint notes of citrus and chocolate. Light citric hops bitterness balances over lesser notes of toasted chocolate. Light bodied, medium carbonation, soft malty finish. Drinkable, but just not a whole lot going on here... pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2007
bottle.....appearance: cinammon brown with a thin white head....aroma: light on the citrus hop while also having a mild malt contingent....taste: clean citrus hops, light on the bitter scale w/ a crisp clean finish. needs a bit more flavor overall but very sessionable.

Consumed a few BFB’s of this at Gin Ricks. A nice, mildly hoppy pale ale, very drinkable. Smooth, lightly bitter, good stuff. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Golden amber pour. Small white head. Aroma and taste of toasted caramel malts. Medium citrus hops finish. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 12 oz bottle pours an amber with a tall white head. Toasted malts, caramel, and toffee in the nose. Similar flavors with a touch of nuts, grapefruit citrus, and pine. Sessionable. A nice example of an English Pale Ale as Goose Island has done with many of their early balanced English styles. dankman (257) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Simple, easy to drink weak ale. Not a huge amount of flavor besides hints of carmel and a hint of bitter in the finish. jbuzz (830) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2007
This went down VERY fast!! It s aroma was fantastic and tasted much better than I had thought it would. Smooth and crisp. A lingering after taste was quit pleasant.
