DrnkMcDermott (3122) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Bottled. Once in a while I gotta remember to have one of these as reminder of “how it all started” in this area. The Goose’s flagship beer is one of those that can start anybody on the road to good beer appreciation. An appealing orangey pour with a good head. Caramel roasty malts, and a floral/bitter hop character that only insinuates itself after a few sips. Toward the bottom of the glass, it even took on a bit of IPA character. Wonderful fruity ale taste.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is fruit and bread. The taste is caramel, fruit, and bread. This is smooth and very drinkable. This is a good session beer.

budedou (1004) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - SEP 1, 2017
Bread and malt smells with some sour apple.Pours a cloudy orange with an anemic white qyuickly dissipating head. Plenty of lacing. Oily bitter flavors of leather and a little caramel malty notes. Good imitation of the style

3.4
tfontana (1041) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear amber with nice sparkle, 1/2-finger width white head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is bread, fruit, earth. Taste is caramel and bread, hint of fruit. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with watery texture, lively carbonation and crisp malt with light bitter finish. Overall, aroma and taste are not bold but there is some hop/malt balance here.

3.1
Grumbo (3469) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2017
Bottle, UK import, source not recorded. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating.
