Draft: Poured a light golden color ale with a medium size foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops notes with light cereal notes. Taste is a mix of light cereal notes with some floral citrusy hops notes and light bitter notes are also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Refreshing and enjoyable without being entirely focus on hops.

2/8/16 Chicago (Goose Island Brew Pub $4 16 draft pour into Nonic glass). Golden Brown pour, medium carbonation. light bubbly thin head. Bread yeast aroma and hoppy bread taste.Dry crisp taste, medium carbonation and texture. Overall OK offering, would have liked a little stronger or with a more bitter hops taste.

amber. Great retention as it only faded ever so slowly and still left behind about a half inch or so throughout the entire session. Great side glass lace was apparent throughout as well.

nice hoppy bouguet, a bit floral, and not very citrusy though. But this was only on the top as the main body of the smell was made of sugary malts which really domintated here. Lots of light earthy tones subtly very good and a solid offering here. Great malted flavor, light grain and cereal touch to it. A bit of a dry hoppy finish, but nothing strong by any means rounded it out. Had a very earthy feel to it. A nice light ale, almost a pale, but a little bit bolder then that. Still more then decent and very well put together.

Pours a clear, golden color. 1/6 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of hops and sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with an average carbonation level. The feel is almost watery. Tastes of hops, sweet malt, slight grain, and slight yeast. Overall, an average pale ale at best - very bland.
