A: Pours a hazy golden hue, with a two finger off white head at the top that does not leave a lot of lacing.

S: Little bit of wheat and lemon and honey, but nothing very out there, pretty bland in smell.

T: Same as the nose, pretty bland, the lemon and sweetness comes through, slight hint of malts as well.

M: Medium Bodied, slight carbonation, a tiny bit sticky.

O: Not one of the best beers I have had but an easy drinker, nothing spectular on this one from Goose Island.

312 has a lot of flavor for a lighter beer. This is one of my go-to beers, especially if I need to entertain and have beer that I know most will like. In my experience it goes well with chicken and fish, or after a long day of work. If you haven't tried it I strongly recommend that you do.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a hand glass.

A: Light hay colored hue. Pours a 2 finger, dry, frothy, white head. Craters slowly, and unevenly. Continually rising effervescence. Blanket of foam maintains. Fair amounts of lacing.

S: Hay and lemon citrus.

T: Light wheaty flavor with hints of lemon.

M: Light and crisp. Shallow depth. Very little aftertaste.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Frothy head, maintaining effervescence and fair lacing. Nose is light and citrusy. Light and wheaty flavor accentuated with a bit of lemon citrus. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Swirled the last of it score pouring to get the yeast in. This kind of comes across as a American Adjunct Lager with Ale yeast, a little wheat added. The mouthfeel and flavor does have some qualities of a wheat beer, but tastes like a cheaply made highly "drinkable" beer made for high profitability.
Better than all the BMC products but still disappointing. There's a mild orange flavor that is pleasant. Mouthfeel is a little chalky and unpleasant.

Reviewed from notes. Served as part of a GI tasting at Whole Foods Venice.

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow with a half-inch thick white head which leaves spotty lace.

N: Wheaty grains and some light lemony notes.

T: Wheat, corn, slight clove spice, banana esters, lemony citrus.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Thin and somewhat watery.

O: First part of the GI tasting and you've got to start someplace. Not something I'd revisit.
