Lime is too dominant- may work fine as an accent note but too heavy-handed (as is the salt for that matter), there is a nice agave note but it gets drowned out.

Pours a cloudy yellow color without much head. I am chalking the lack of head to not using the right glass for this beer.

Smell is wheat with a bit of lemon.

Mainly lemon and lime at the start, I can detect the salt at the finish.

Feels a bit watery to me, light tingling from the carbonation.

Kind of a middle of road beer to me. Nothing about it really stands out, nothing outstanding, nothing bad. This would be a good beer for a hot day, would cool you down without much alcohol, and more flavor than a mass market beer.

Looks, feels, and smells like any light beer infused with lime. Tastes like a watered down margarita and a bad one at that.

On draught at Old Chicago. Pours hazy lemon yellow with small but firm head of foam. Smells of lemons, lactose, tastes of the same, dash or 2 of salt. Light bodied. Fairly gentle carbonation. Fairly tart offering.

On tap:
Pretty on point with a hazy body that allows light through. Head isn't much, as it is with some sours.

Nose has some wheat and a hint of sour. The combo comes across with a little watermelon note.

The feel is quite light, and allows the wheat to come out. The sour notes are light, and it needs a little more of that and salt. This comes across as a lightly tart wheat beer. I'm looking for a little more in my Gose.

Purchased warm - Can dated 4/19/17 - Poured into an English pub glass

L - Pours a hazy light gold color, foamy 2 finger head that dissipates very quickly leaving just a ring around the glass. It starts off with some delicate lacing and then fades off entirely as it goes down.

S - Musty basement, lime, ocean water and a whiff of tartness.

T - Slightly sour, moderate salinity with an artificial lime aftertaste.

F - Sharp carbonation with a light body.

O - This isn't terrible. I enjoyed the salinity but wish it was a bit more sour. The lime should have played a more predominant role to help to accelerate the sour but it's more of an after thought. The nose has a bit of a basement funk to it, but it may be that my can was old. I might buy this again in a pinch if I was really craving a sour and nothing else was around, but I think it needs to be revamped.
