look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
App-3.0- This beer is amber in appearance with a foam head that dissipates very quickly and doesn't leave any lacing.
Smell-4.5- Amazing smell! Crystal malts produce a caramel sweetness that come together with hops. Simple but very nice.
Taste-4.0 -Sweet malty character mixed with a caramel taste. Mid way through hops make their presence and balance the sweet tastes previously noted. I also note some piney and citrusy flavors floating about near the very end.
MF-4.0- Has a light mouth feel; would make a hell a hell of a session beer. Very mild and easy to enjoy. Swims around the palette smoothly. I usually like my pale ales a bit heavier but this does the trick.
Drink-4.5- Easy to drink with a semi dry semi wet finish.
I like it. + for goose island.
