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.

Out of the bottle it somehow looks clear, yet quite hazy in the glass. Straw yellow color, yeast floating about, and a moderate bubbly head that dissipates into a patchy film.
The initial aroma has a slightly funky quality, sour and with a touch of wet grass. Then, strong lime aroma with a touch of ocean air and coriander.
The taste has a moderate tart quality comprised of lime, green apples. The coriander and restrained use of salt adds balance and a subtle briny quality. A firm wheat and Pilsner malt backbone adds a touch of sweetness and especially opens up towards the final third of the drink.
It’s on the light side of medium bodied, moderately carbonated (perhaps not as high as other examples) and with a dry and puckering finish. Tart but quite accessible.
This was a nice Gose.
