An ok pale ale - a bit of a watery body, aroma of flowers. Flavor is slightly bitter, with a hint of spice and a clean finish. ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 I didnít have a notepad with me, but I didnít like this much. Not very good. timmy300 (203) - bloomington, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2005
the description on the bottle says that this is an english bitter, but this website says it is an american pale ale.......whatever it is i liked it.......easy drinking moderately bitter well balanced...... punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - SEP 8, 2005
The bartender in Chicago described this brew as "one of [his] staple ales." I wasnít too impressed, however. The hops was a bit overly bitter. Donít get me wrong--I like bitter if itís done right. I just didnít think it balanced out well with the rest of the brew. An OK pale ale, but Iíd have others first, for sure. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2005
Very easy to drink and would like to get again for a session maybe. However a slight ice tea taste makes this not great.

Clear darker golden pour with a solid layer of off-white head. Nice intricate lacing as it went down. Nose picked up some sweetness from caramel malt as well as a subtle spice bouquet and some floral hops. Flavor found all that the aroma had to offer. Somewhat dry and slightly oily on the palate with a medium-lasting citrus hop finish. Tasty little ale. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 17, 2005
on tap. Clear amber. beautiful spiced,earthy sweet smell. light bodied with a watery mouthfeel. Mild , but decent malty grainy taste. Very easy drinking. twindadplus2 (709) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Bottle. Nice brownish amber color with a small foamy head. Lots of spicy, fruity hops in the aroma (apples and pears) and a bit of sweet malt in the background. Flavors of spiced apples, plums and grassy hops. Bitter, spicy finish with a tease of sweet caramel malt. Good body and light carbonation. My first goose island beer and I liked it.. delmecum (87) - Western Illinois, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Had 2 with lunch today. 90+ degrees and it went down geat. Not overwhelming while having enough of a taste to make you want another swallow. At only $3 a bottle in a "nice" bar, a real pleasure of a beer to drink. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2005
god do I hate it when my ratings donít save and I have to retype shit
This was a good summer beer lots of hop in the aroma avg palate and a nice spicy bitter light malt flavor. a solid brew went well on a 90 degree day.
