This is a hazy golden beer. The head is slim and soapy. Smell of mild wheat, a hint of twang and some yeast. Grain and some citrus. This is an everyday, average wheat...nothing special.

I absolutely despise Chicago. And now, I despise it even more.

You see, this "craft" beer is supposedly all crafty and original, and therefore is unfiltered and does it's hardest to not be a larger.
The result is a taste I would only accept if I were a sixteen year old desperate to get drunk. The taste is bold, enormous and overwhelming, just like "city lights on beer Michigan", and has a bitter, long lasting aftertaste. It makes me want to stop drinking beer. Avoid at all costs.

December 27, 2014

12 oz bottle, pint glass

A - Light gold, appears to be filtered and has very good clarity. Little haze, if any it is from the chill. White foam about a centimeter tall, with medium-low retention.

S – Very light citrus, mostly lemon with a hint of orange. Hops are herbal and earthy but very mild. Very clean profile. Not much really here.

T – A malty, biscuity front with a backbone of herbal hops. Again, lemony-citrus flavors make up the flavor profile. Very refreshing.

M – Moderate carbonation with some nice backing bitterness. Finishes fairly dry.

O – This is THE first Goose Island beer I tried after moving to Chicago in 2004. I even called it “three-twelve” instead of the correct colloquial version of “three-one-two” (after the Chicago area code). But I digress. It had been a few years since I’d tried it, and I was pleasantly reminded of what a great everyday, sessionable beer this really is. Very pleased to try it again and enjoy it so much.
