Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 32 oz. swing-top growler into a Cigar City goblet.

A: Very light gold, mildly hazy. Forms a big two-finger white head though it dissipates quickly. Good visible carbonation.

S: Lemony citric tart, mild wheat grist under the lightest cracker malt. Not a huge amount of aroma, but what's there is pretty nice.

T: Tart lemons and citric acid. Nice wheat aspect to the otherwise pale cracker malt bill - and the grainy character that is so pervasive to the style is happily absent. The salinity shows up a hair as a touch of savoriness just before the swallow, and lasts for a beat afterwards its the lingering citric tartness.

A: Light body, minimal alcohol. The carbonation sensation is maybe a touch lower than expected, though I would keep in mind that this was a growler pour.

O: A good, standard example of style. Nothing overtly special to make it stand out, but I find it difficult to find much fault in it either.

On tap at Mermaid Tavern in Tampa, FL.

This pours a clear straw yellow, with a small fizzy head, and not much lacing.

Smells like clean Gose sourness, some lemon, a very mild funk, and some salt.

This is as straightforward as a Gose gets, and it nails the style for sure. It's very clean and well balanced in the sour and citrusy department. It's got a pretty pronounced level of salinity, which works for me.

This is light bodied, with a very crisp and clean mouthfeel. It's very drinkable.

A spot on stab at the style here.

Thanks to markwise for this growler, 32 ounces of gose. That sounds like a good eight minutes to me. Split with my lovely (but stout-craving) wife.

The pour is light, see-through yellow. The nose pops with sea salt & lightly acidic. Simple. Appealing.

Angry Chair Gose is like drinking tasty water off the beaches of Carlsbad. The salinity is perfectly balanced: enough to satisfy my sodium intake for the day, but not enough to send me to the hospital for Morton poisoning. Mid-palate brings wheat, tart lemon spritzer. There’s a dried up pond near my house that’s much moister than this. Crushable.

This is like the first single-celled organism that crawled out of the primordial muck. Simple, direct, & probably the initial meal of the first two-celled organism. So easy & so very good.

Pours a light, gold colored body with minimal head and lace.
Aroma is sour and citrusy for most part, possibly could be described as acidic, with hints of yeast/wheat and spices.
Light bodied, the wheat helps keep it smooth, mostly a sour, at times puckering taste profile of citric fruits and finishes dry and crisp.
Not most flavorful gose but it hit the spot.

Nice like fresh linen with a beautiful girl underneath all of it. Salty, sweet and super drinkable, over and over and over again. The body is good, a nice inch head for a couple moments before it dissipates as you drink it. Some tartness going with little bits of salt throughout.

Nice body, nice tartness, cloudy, golden straw color, very little head, no more than a halo. Some of the spices, coriander, I think, where perhaps slightly heavy, but none the less a very satisfying beer.

Great flavor. A bit of a creamed corn nose (didn't pinpoint the aroma until someone noted it ... merely identified it as a spoiled grain smell) but the coriander, salinity, tartness come into good balance. Very grainy finish.
