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.

3.36/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a brown longneck 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a foamy white head that fades quickly but leaves a little sticky lacing behind. Nothing to special about the appearance.

Smell: Malt, spices and some light hops. Very minimal aroma.

Taste: An interesting flavor of lemony citrus with a slight salty finish. Tastes better when it is very cold, as the salt gets more prominent as the beer warms. Otherwise just a malty amber style beer with a lot of malt. The lemony citrus flavor is a nice touch. Not a fan of the saltiness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a style I like very much, but I appreciate the effort to bring a style like this to the masses. I would like to try it on tap or from a cask to see if it changes the flavor profile a little.

Goosetown Gose pours a copper color with very little head, no lacing. There is a sweet crisp malty aroma, but its rather weak. The taste has a nice crisp malty backbone, with hints of lemon and wheat. Flavors are present even though its a lighter beer, but its rather easy to drink. Overall a decent refreshing beer.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

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!
