an incredibly mild take on the gose style, a real food beer if you want a palate cleanser and something that wont be filling, but for me it left a little bit to be desired. this is my first beer from these guys, and its decent but not inspiring. the sourness is super low for the style, which i get for high volume consumption and wider appeal for a beer like this, but its super mild, almost like a lemon got squeezed in the beer, no more acidic than that, but it is really clean and refined lactic tang, and i appreciate its tidy profile here. the salt is actually pretty robust which is cool with things like seafood and also fatty pork dishes, it accents and cuts at the same time, and i feel like this beer really does need the food context to work this well. the malt base doesnt taste wheaty to me, it has the finish and feel of an adjunct lager, kind of cheap and metallic, no structure at all, and despite excellent carbonation, it feels way too light. overall a beer i had no problem drinking through and actually enjoyed with my food, a little different proportionality from what i am used to in the style now, but this is only decent, not great as goses go...

Pours a clear deep straw/pale gold (with a rose hint) producing 2 fingers of mineral water effervescent, rapidly diminishing, foamy, white head that leaves minimal lacing, only a hint of a surface cap & a thin collar ring. Aroma is mildly tart & mineral. It has a low malt profile with something Graham cracker like, ale yeast, brine, a hint of coriander & it may be my imagination but a little grassy hop hint. Taste opens with a salinity & lactic acid sourness that complement each other without overpowering the hints of Graham cracker, thin white fruit (green apple) & lime that develop during the swallow, ending in a peppery, clean, crisp, dry finish. Aftertaste is shortlived salty lime & green apple. The coriander while present in the nose is difficult to pick up in the mouth. This may be the most easy-drinking Gose I have had to date. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation that rapidly dissipates as the brew warms, mildly astringent, prickly & dry. Delicate & delightful. Well done Grayton!

Light lemon yellow color with diminishing white cap.

Aroma of light citrus, floral and a touch of spice with underlying sweet malt.

Taste is lightly tartly, sweetly maltly, lemony with a touch of salt.

Light texture with balancing carbonation.

It seems to be some sort of sweet tart version of a beer. A beach thirst quencher that I imagine would go well with food cart cuisine.
