Beer Advent - Day 3
Poured 12 oz bottle into pint glass. According to the bottle the beer was brewed in Baldwinsville, NY (not too far from where I grew up) rather than Illinois as I expected. Bright clear yellow color from the instant it hits the glass with a nice but short-lived fizzy head.
Not too much on the nose. Hints of yeasty white bread and malts. As the beer warmed up the hops made their presence known much to my delight. Taste matches the smell. Clean. Simple. Easy drinker for a hot summer afternoon. I am not usually a big wheat beer fan but this is one I would be happy to have handed to me as a refresher after mowing the lawn.
Serving type: bottle

Tried this on tap at Turner Field. If I am going to spend $$ for beer, hats off to Turner Field for at least bringing some craft beers along.
Poured a nice one finger head, which held up well on a humid night, in a plastic tumbler. good creamy head, can't wait to see this in a real weissen glass.
Good clean wheat aroma, not the easiest place to try and develop a smell, but it was definitely fresh,
I thought the taste was a good American wheat beer, not as floral, and citrus as the German brews, which I think is a good idea, let the American flavor stand alone. I can always get the true German imports, but I give great thumbs up when the American Craft brews do this type decent.
Mouthfeel was refreshing, but actually had some chew, I liked it very much, and if I was in a regular bar, would have ordered this one for a second go.
Overall, my first Goose Island, and I was very pleased. I will look for it in bottles now, especially when I need to get a decent American Wheat that isn't from a Macro brewery. Give this one a try.
