Reliably found at Winestyles in Macon, GA. Love the low alcohol bitters, and this one was my first.

Had this brew at The John Labatt Centre (Budweiser Gardens) in London Ontario.
Been wanting to try a Goose Island product for some time now, and I wasnt disappointed.
Smells like an Ale. No hop smell.
Pours a dark caramel colour. Very little head.
Taste is what an ale should be. Not overpowering.
Good amount of carbonation with little aftertaste.
Overall I was very impressed and I will be having this again in the future.

Great aroma, clear amber color. Good flavor not too hoppy.Clean finish. Flavor is not overpowering, but everything doesn't have to be stout.
I like it! yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2006
Tasted 16/04/2006. 330ml bottle from Rumbleís, Wellington.
Pale copper, bright, lightly carbonated, with a foamy light-tan head that laces a little but doesnít linger for long. Barley sugars and nutty grain on the nose, a hint of citrus and an appealing, faint and slightly musty, yeast note. Dry toffee-like malt up front, in the mouth, with a mild lolly sweetness. This is followed by citrus hop flavour and a strong, pepper and grass, bitterness. The malt profile holds all the way through the bitter finish. Slightly hard water but not quite as much as some English pales, like Taylorís Landlord. Soft-medium carbonation in the mouth, medium weight. Great beer, well crafted. A classic strong pale ale, which Iím surprised hasnít scored more strongly on here. Perhaps a little too subtle for the US market. Chitown440 (15) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2007

Evaluated up against the BJCP.org #14A.
Brilliant clear amber to copper colour with a tan head. Moderate spicy hop Aroma with some maltiness.Medium mouthfeel with some nice sparkling carbonation. The flavor is pleasently hoppy with some nice suttle bitterness at the end. There is a somewhat anonymous malt backbone, but it does support the hops of the beer well. There are some toasted caramel compounds in the flavor and aftertaste.
Overall an over averages example of an English Pale Ale. Well brewed and balanced, but lacking a bit in the maltiness. TGL0782 (15) - Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Appearance- Nice amber hue
Aroma- floral hops, caramel sweetness and a little citrus.
Taste- pleasant hop crispness upfront with just a little caramel sweetness following. Not much of a finish and the flavor could be a little bolder for my tastes. But still very enjoyable.
Mouth-feel- Light bodied.
Drink-ability- Easy tommygunn (1) - marinette, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2013 does not count
l, orange, amber, lightly bitter, light body, lively, bitter, delicious compliment to buffalo wings Mikeyaponte (40) - Chicopee, Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2015
A nice break from the over hopped, trendy IPAs that everyone is into nowadays. Good to have as honest Ale again.

Great caramel smell, malty with a berry fruit sensation on the nose. Taste follows with a lot of caramel, biscuity berry and hop hints. Crushable, supremely pairable with most foods.
