My boys and I tried a can of Old Pro and the consensus was not good! The first swig of Old Pro Gose was like a holocaust on my taste buds. Not sure how anyone gets pleasure from drinking it, however some get enjoyment from watching Honey Boo Boo!!!!

On tap at Church Key last night. This smelled and tasted nothing like John's review right below mine, but given that it was deemed fine for the finest beer bar in DC, I'm going ahead and reviewing it.

The beer looks gorgeous. Light yellow, dense, white head, excellent lacing, all hallmarks of a good beer. The nose, OTOH, is awful. It smells like the material used in diapers to soak up pee, and slightly used to boot. I get no salt, no coriander, no funk. The palate is also just way, way off. Downright terrible, this also does taste like a peed-in diaper. Light in body and moderately carbonated, I guess the feel is decent for the style, but boy, is this gross. Four of us couldn't finish a 4oz pour.

A shout out to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of salty pretzels. Taste is not so good, sour lemons and salt, not to my liking at all. Feels sour and medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not terrible, but I won't have a need to drink this one again.

Hazy pale yellow with a massive, overly carbonated eggshell head that doesn't stick around for very long, but completely disappears. A minor line of lace marks the highest level, and in the body, visible bubbles rise from the bottom.

Smell is salty lemon, milky and lactic, with a unique floral and seaweed mix. Grape and hay come forward before too long.

Taste is lemonade, salty lime, light lactic acid, with grape-apple juice and hay as it warms. Not leaving too much of an impression either way.

Tart and tingly in the back of the throat, and crisp.

Canned March 24 according to the ink on the bottom of this 12oz vessel.

It is a very milky, unfiltered pale straw color with a fizzy white head that almost disappeared before I could take a picture of it.

As much as I love a Gose, I run into this occasionally with the aroma. Unfortunately, it smells very much like vomit. It is very sour with a lot of lactic acid, some salt, and a little lemon. I hate when this happens because it is really hard to overcome, but I tend to be pretty sensitive to it.

There is a puckering sour lemon and acidity up front with a touch of spicy corriander, follwed by some sea salt that seems to tame it a little. The wheat is very subtle. Barley noticeable to me.

The body is not nearly as carbonated as I would have guessed and had that signature soft feel.

I like the seemingly traditional approach, and having only tried American versions it may be more representative of the style than I scoring towards. This one is certainly drinkable overall, but seems pretty unbalanced toward the sour end to me. Some more wheat grains would probably help quite a bit, and letting it warm up seems to help.

Poured from the can into a tall wheat ale glass.

Very pale lemon body, unfiltered with a minimal amount of carbonation but just enough, with a gray colored edge to it. Head is only about a finger tall, bright white and a foamy soapy consistency. Dissolves slowly but eventually to a thin bubbled collar, and then to nothing.

Good hints of tart lemon, but also some wonder bread cheap flour, and a hint of brine. The salty character is a little bit on the sweat angle slightly in the aroma department, not the greatest but not horrible. Lots of good malt depth if a bit flour dry strangely.

Palate comes a little bit too light and thin. Lots of fruit juice and tangy lemon qualities but very wet and watery body. Hinted malt quality really missing with not a lot of density or bakery quality or thickness. Flattened pineapple juice like finish which comes off a bit strange. Tartness a bit too high and sharp as well, coming off more like old fruit juice than beer. Strangely not that much salty either.

Relatively alright and drinkable, but also kind of forgettable.
