Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: Golden with a thin white head. Large amount of carbonation and good lacing down the side of the glass.
Smell: Hints of citrus, nose is dominated by piney, grassy hop aroma.
Taste: Good, but not great. Hops again dominate the palette, with some bready malt to round it out. The malt seems to be the weakness here, as there either isn't enough of it overall or the types aren't rich enough to make the beer feel full. The finish is a little watery and funky.
Mouthfeel: As above, a tad on the watery side, good level of carbonation in the beer and it's definitely a smooth one.
Overall: I really enjoy the concept of this beer, and it's a solid offering from Goose Island. A little bit of tinkering with the grain bill might make the beer even more desirable. Not as impressed as I was the first time I had it, but it's still a beer that I'd recommend be tried.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Came to me a brilliant and slightly hazy gold in color. Good touches of orange and copper in the color of the body with a good, thick head of about 2 fingers that retained all day. Lacing was also very good for the plastic cup it came in.
S- Hoppy and citrusy right up front, but not overly so. Good notes of both pine and citrus, but a somewhat orange-like scent was most noticeable. Nothing over the top as far as bitterness and hop character, but enough to satidfy my hop craving of the moment.
T- Starts off with a mild and citrusy hop punch that quickly introduces a malt backbone. Balance is struck with a mild hop presence throughout the entire drink and the malt just lying low providing enough sweetness to let the hops roll.
M- Light to medium weight across the palate with good carbonation and great drinkability. This is a sessionable pale.
Overall, this beer is solid and deserves respect. Frankly, this should have been introduced nationally instead of 312 Urban Pale.
