Draft at Mother Hubbards. Went here a couple of times after work at midnight. I was glad they were open until 4am! Came out coppery amber. Nose is hoppy and lightly floral. Nose reminded me of a pale ale, but more towards American now that I’m seeing this as an English style. Taste is hoppy, floral, dry malts, and light nutty notes. Body is medium and has average carbonation. Finishes with more floral notes, soft citrusy hops and malts notes. Subtle spices as well. Not bad. tennisjoel (1496) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2007
I’ve had this beer before a few times...never got around to rating it though. Well, a buddy of mine brings it over, so I thought I’d give it a rating. Hollywoodt (241) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2007
I used to think this was a very solid beer. However, I really wasn’t that impressed this time around. Malt heavy, and very few hops to speak of. Slightly let down after almost raving about this beer when I first tried it.
On tap @ Bar Louie’s in Flint. Hard to detect much of an aroma... a little hops, but not much else. Flavor was of malt and hops. It was OK... nothing special. JohnnyJ (5571) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 26, 2007
A copper pour with small head. Similar to a an APA. Hoppy aroma with some caramel malt and citrus. Watered down flavors of citrus, malt, caramel, and hops. Just another average offering from goose island. Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Poured a clear copper color into pint glass. Little to no lacing. Taste is predominantly carmel malts with hints of citrus and spice. Undernotes of overroasted malts are slightly out of character. Very crisp and clean. Not my favorite, but fine enough.

Good Bottle beer now being served on tap at a few of my favorite bars locally. Interesting flavor and refreshing taste. I’ll have to get down to the brewery sometime and try it fresh. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2011 cloudy orange with large white head..aroma of light floral hops and minimal malt....finishes slightly acrid and bitter...flavor is somewhat similar, crisp and refreshing. Grassy finish. .. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Couldnt even tell that this was a pale ale. The hop presence was almost non existent. Below average for me. mrm1021 (23) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2007
12 oz bottle from a Variety pack. Beer pours to a amber color with a minimum head. Small hop nose with some malt aroma. Taste is of malt and very smooth with a bit of a bitter hop finish. A Goose Island standard that has always drank well mahlon (19) - Monterey, California, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Got a 6 pack of this for my Birthday last year. My friend from Indiana said this was her favorite regional beer, now I see why.
