A: Deep amber with one finger of rocky white foam. Very clear and bright with noticeable carbonation bubbles. Head quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Inviting.
S: Aroma is a mixture of grainy/ cereal malts and floral/ citrus hops. Fruity esters.
T&M: Medium body with an excellent balance to the ingredients. Mostly grainy with a touch of sweet malts that are constantly intertwined with the floral hops and finishing pleasantly on the citrus-y side. Solid amount of carbonation for the style.
D: This is Goose Island's flagship beer for a reason. It is highly drinkable and extremely tasty. I really appreciate lighter style brews that can attain this level of balance. Very well made. A fine sessionable beer that would also go good with many different types of food. Enjoyable.
