Tap. The beer pours to a rich reddish amber body with a nice creamy off-white head. The aroma was hoppy but mostly just balanced for the masses. The flavor was malty but had a nice light hop kick that was apparent after many sips. It started to grow on me. The palate was subtly bitter and has an average mouthfeel.

On tap @ Giordanos on Rush! Pours a nice amber with a thin head. A muted aroma of hops and some spice. A very drinkable session PA, nothing super special, but solid.

Had this at a fish fry and I dont know if it was the fish or the beer, but they both were great. Nice Pale Ale with an amber color and very smooth finish.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Great amber color, almost no head and what little of it is is gone in seconds. Has a very spicy carbonated taste to it but goes down smooth. Light hoppyness with a good bitter character like an esb. An above average beer.

Solid pale ale. I first got hooked on beer via pale ale and drank Sierra Nevada for years. This beer is comparable to that one. Very drinkable, but not too special. Lacking a bit in hops. Great mouth-feel, though...and nice balance with malt.

Didnt care much for this beer. There was just nothing special about it. Lacking in both flavor and aroma. Not bad, just not great.

Big thanks to footballguy TD32 for this midwest brew. Pours a clear amber color that forms into a medium sized head that faded preetty quick. Smell is the smell of a bitter, pretty good. NOt a bad taste, but pretty light IMO for an English Bitter. A solid drinker though, just nothing special.

33 cl bottle, Minneapolis. Hazy pale amber colour, malty aroma. Some malt and hops flavour, but lighter than I expected. Still decent but thought itd be a bit more full flavoured.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a big white head. Aroma is malty, with some spicy hop flavor coming through. Taste is malty, but very accented by the hops. Overall a good easy drinker, but not the best from Goose Island.
