Notes/Commercial Description:
Schell's Goosetown is our interpretation of a traditional, German-style Gose. The beer pours clear, golden orange in color, with a thick white foam head. It has a bright lemon zest and coriander aroma with a slight saltiness reminiscent of a cool ocean breeze. A refreshingly light and citrusy tartness greets your palate, backed by a bready, wheat malt character and a touch of coriander spice. Lighter bodied, yet full flavored with a lively carbonation that gives the beer a crisp, dry finish. A uniquely refreshing session beer, perfectly suited for a warm summer day from the August Schell Brewing Company.

This one pours a bright gold with a hint of amber. The head is an egg-shell white with fine bubbles that fell to a film.

Smells of citrus zest and musky malt liquor.

Doesn't taste as heavy as it smells, thankfully, with a slightly bready, slightly fruity malt backbone that fades to a hint of citrus that gets lost in a CO2 sting. Cant' seem to detect any salt here whatsoever.

Feels a bit big, with a medium body that gets swollen by the carbonation.

It's "drinkable", but not entirely desirable.

Pours a clean deep yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, coriander and some sweeter spices. In the taste, sweet cinnamon, coriander and sweet orange, and a touch malty. A spice bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a lightly dry light spice in the aftertaste. A bit sweet but light in flavor, eh!
