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!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: Light golden, appeared just slightly less carbonated than a typical AAL.

S: Saltwater, faint wheat and fruitiness

T: To me, this mostly just tastes of a lager (albeit a decent one) with a dash of salt. There is a slight, subtle fruitiness if I really search for it but I'm not getting any coriander.

M: Light bodied, some carbonation. The salt is drying.

This is my first gose, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. The predominant characteristic about this beer is it's saltiness. Very drinkable, nothing unpleasant or offensive about this one, but nothing particularly interesting, either. Goes down very refreshing, but left my mouth really dry--I had to drink a full glass of water afterwards.
