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.

Tallahassee, Fl - Lucky's Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly fading light off-white head. Aroma of ripening vegetables, a touch of toffee. Flavor has some caramel sweetness, some ripening vegetables, a hint of sweet toffee. Mouthfeel has a nice decent thickness to it. Does in a pinch.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper color with a nice head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel and grapefruit. Taste of caramel sweetness bit of grapefruit and pine. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth and clean with a nice malt character. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.. ironprog (98) - Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2017
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.

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.

Gold brown clear. Smells like dull hopped lager. Probably more like a IPL in taste. A logger lager for somebody who like bitter IPA hops. Perhaps just a tad of vienna in there. Near 6% and it never lets you forget. csaso (2321) - Missouri, USA - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle - big foamy head, clear medium copper color, good balanced aroma and flavor with caramel bread malt and earthy/piney hops, not bad overall

copper clear light amber. Foamy. Sweet rich caramel nose, with fruits. Some spices. The caramel aroma is real nice for a mostly caramel aroma. Not really getting the grapefruit pine.NIce amber lager overall.
