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.

Pours golden straw color. White soapy head recedes to little lacing.

Aroma slightly salty and wheaty. Nice enough.

Wheaty flavor. Small amount of saltiness. Nice for a summer day but would like more tartness and more salt.

Medium mouthfeel.

Very good summer beer. But would like more from it.

Pours golden. A thin white creamy head leaves lacing.

The smell is mild, but pleasant - wheat/grain with a touch of honey and a hint of coriander.

The taste is of a honey-like grainy sweetness. Wheat gives a mild sour-like tang balance. A touch of coriander is present. It is sweet with just a hint of sour and spice. Light-bodied, but creamy, it has a soft, clean smooth finish.

A nice, easy-drinking sweet-leaning thirst quencher!

This is probably my favorite beer at the moment. Goosetown has a malty, citrus taste. Very, very refreshing. No hint of bitterness, perfect for a summer day, yard work companion. It is extremely hard to have just one. Pleasant aftertaste, probably because of the salt. I am no expert, but I know what I like and it is Goosetown. A very enjoyable experience and I have stocked my beer fridge full of Goosetown.
