Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a small tight bubbled beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is husky and grainy with minimal to no hops. The flavor is pretty basic, a little sweet, a little grainy, minimal to no hops. Kind of a Yuengling Lager clone. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering clingy finish. Meh, I’d pass on a second go around with this one.

an older bottle 12/1/16 and it is nutty and aged like a old ale. body is fuller and a little oily with nice suds and substantial enough mouth feel. easy hop profile some citrus fruit behind dark fruit and a bit of ivy. probably not what it's supposed to be but it is better than decent. rougeau13 (3282) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2017
Bottle. Clear coppery amber with an off-white head. Aroma of toast, caramel, pine, and soft dark fruit. Tastes lightly sweet and toasty with fruit. Light bodied, crisp. Relatively complex and quite good for the style. jrh2254 (191) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017
From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours amber with a thin head. Toffee fresh aroma. Taste of malt, toffee, and hops. Nice balance but just a little sweet.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Slightly nutty with caramel and mild toffee. Roasty. Medium hoppy bite. Doesn't do a whole lot for me.

12 oz. bottle. AROMA: Caramel malt and a very slight hint of bubblegum. APPEARANCE: Pours a clear amber with an off-white head that lingers a fair amount of time. TASTE: Starts off fairly bitter and then wanes into a slight sweetness. PALATE: Medium bodied with a medium texture. Carbonation is average and finish is long with a bit of a bitter touch to it. OVERALL: Reminds me of an IPL. It’s an okay beer, but I like some of Goose Islands other beers better. NikkTwist (3409) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Draft at Irish Pol. Top of a keg. Translucent copper amber pour with soapy off-white foam. Hoppy and sugary for a lager. Medium toasted caramel malts. Bitter sweet mandarins. Dried pinecones. Cola. Hints of vanilla and maple syrup. JohananaV2 (278) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Goose island has been making some pretty good tasting beers lately for me, and their pre season lager does not disappoint. It's one of the better lagers I've had in a while.
