Taste: semi kettle sour, tart, lime notes with slight salt, tangy. Lime, sour yeast nose. Gold, hazy, smaller head and lace. Medium/light body. Unique, like a Margarita in an ale.

Hazy yellow with a white head that lasted well and fairly long. Smells like lime. The bright zest of the lime peel. Grassy hops and a bit of their spice . A bit of cracker. Taste is excellent. Smooth crisp and a touch salty in the finish. crisp malt with a moderate carbonation. Very light hops and lots of lime. A mouth watering tartness and a lick of salt . There is a difference between bread with crust on it and cracker and that is the reason that the gose can feature the citrus so well with a dash of salt. The beer is refreshing and pairs well with lots of food. It's as friendly to the table as the farmhouse ale.

Granted, I am not a huge connoisseur of the Gose style, nor do I drink a lot of lagers on a daily basis, but to me, the El Gose is an interesting experiment but a miss for my palate. It is too in-between a traditional Mexican lager style ("Tecate") and a traditional German Gose (missing salt in this). And they add lime, so I get what they are going for and I usually love Avery beers, but not this one. I'd actually scratch it up as a loss, given their usual quality, and start over. Give us a real Gose! We know you can, Avery! With much constructive love, yours. Me.

Pour is a hazy straw with a quickly fading foam that completely disappeared.

Smells faintly mineral, citrus.

Taste is citrusy sour, faintly salty the back end brings in some lime rind. Tartness is mild and lingering.

A little more lime and citrus in general than I’m used to but enjoyed nonetheless.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Hazy light gold, with a good amount of visible carbonation and a thin white head that fades quickly.

S: Lemony tartness and citric acid, over pilsner and cracker malts. There’s salinity as well, then something green or vegetal in the background that I can’t quite place.

T: Light tartness and pilsner malts with moderate sulfurous quality. Lemon and lime citric acid with medium salinity level and lactic tartness. It finishes dry and tart and salty.

M: A light body. Minimal alcohol. The carbonation sensation is on the low side for style.

O: A bit heavy on the pilsner malts for my taste, and a bit light on the tartness. Just nothing I’d buy again. I’m not sure where the vegetal aroma was coming from, but that didn't help.

I really dig this beer. Extremely balance with nice tart middle tones. Drinks easy. I can see how some might be underwhelmed, but personally I think the subtlety makes this beer stand out.
