Look: pours a gold straw color. Thick white head. Smell: hoops in the beginning. Pine flavors almost zero fruit smell. Taste: taste pint, slightly bitter on the back end. Also good amount of malt. Feel: good carbonation. Easy on the palate. Not heavy at all. Leaves no film on the mouth. Overall: not a bad summer beer. Not as citrus as I like but still a good flavor. Well balanced. First drank: 5/25/14 at CCD

Aroma is mild yet pleasant with a touch of semi-sweet malts and perhaps a spicing from hops. A real solid smelling beer considering the bitter style. The drink is bland with no real taste other than a minor bitterness of hops whereas the malts are missing altogether.

Bire brune de 4.3 % dalcool. Elle possde un beau col mousseux au versement. Elle possde un odorat amer. Elle possde une amertume en bouche, lgrement sale, avec un got de limette en finale et restant dans la bouche. Elle est lgrement fade, sans clat dans les gorges suivantes, avec une amertume lgrement dcroissante en fin de bouche. Correcte !

I ordered this from the tap at a restaurant in Kenosha WI. Pours a darkish color. Not sure what beer the commercial description is aiming for, but its not this one. No aroma, barely any flavor -- almost all malt. Not sure Id try it again.

On tap at the Water Street Tavern. Pours a dark ruby color with a thick head. Nice balance of malt and bitterness but there was nothing outstanding about this beer and it was kind of forgetable. Well made though.

Nice malts... hops were there too, but not as much as i would have expected. Sort of reminded me of Killians with more hops. Pretty good.

Clear amber with a small head and light lacing. Aroma is deep citrus with a deffinate grapefruit taste, my first from this brewery and its a good start.

leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Incredibly malty and hoppy aroma, very sweet. Muddy brown appearance. Really malty, not very English country pubs to me but better actually. Although slightly surprised by the sweetness, possibly some unfermented malt going on here - not sure. Good, although somewhat simple.

As Goose Islands description says, this is a balanced beer. Unfortunately everything was balanced towards the bland direction. Decent to look at, but a snooze to drink. Mouthfeel was a particular letdown, seemed very watery.

Slight above average session beer. Nothing incredibly special and nothing really negative going on here either. Mild hop presence mild malt presence.
