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.

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.

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.

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..

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.
