12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date June 06, 2013 printed on the bottleneck label. Goose Island's summer seasonal beer, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store. Expectations are average given this beer's current ratings.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours one finger of fluffy white suds that disappears pretty quick. Body is a semi-clear dark golden color with some small sediment floating in the glass.

S - Smell is of honey, wheat, grains, corn, and bread.

T - Taste follows the nose: dry, bready, grassy, wheat, & grainy corn.

M - Feel is clean, wet, slightly sticky, with a grainy bready finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, an alright beer, but pretty neutral and boring. I could see it pairing well with some summer barbeque. Medium-light bodied, this would probably make for a decent session beer for the summertime. Not the greatest but worth a try.

Goose Island Summertime ---3.5/5
