Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Schell's Goosetown is our interpretation of a traditional, German-style Gose. The beer pours clear, golden orange in color, with a thick white foam head. It has a bright lemon zest and coriander aroma with a slight saltiness reminiscent of a cool ocean breeze. A refreshingly light and citrusy tartness greets your palate, backed by a bready, wheat malt character and a touch of coriander spice. Lighter bodied, yet full flavored with a lively carbonation that gives the beer a crisp, dry finish. A uniquely refreshing session beer, perfectly suited for a warm summer day from the August Schell Brewing Company.

Without getting too detailed, this is a great summer beer. Light, refreshing, and full of flavor. You can taste the salt and coriander in every sip. Serve ice cold on a summer day, and you won't be disappointed. I always keep some on my fridge for company, as it is a crowd pleaser.

My first gose. I poured This from a bottle into a clear teardrop glass. It pours a nice orange with a two finger white head. The taste is a bit sour and lightly hopped. It's a very unusual taste and I'm not blown away by it. It's not fruity, but more spicey. I will probably not seek it out.

A really unadventurous gose, as far as the style goes. Salt is very subdued, with the paleness really dominating.

label was pretty accurate. poured clear, orange, and with a good head. smell was a bit salty with some lemon tang. didn't get the tartness in the taste at all. mouth was thin and went down imperceptibly.

pretty tepid overall. not one i'd buy again.

Part of a sampler 12 pack. Worth trying but nothing special. These would be good for a hot summer day. Could session all day probably. "Theres 2 o's in Goose boys."

This beer pours a very clear, very pale straw. The aroma promising - biscuit and salt waft out powerfully. The flavor is very faint I taste the salt, and a tiny bit of biscuit malt, but little else. The mouthfeel is fizzy and thin. Overall, I am just not impressed by this beer. Would it do fine on a hot day? Sure, but I could find so many better options. Unless all you want is a weakly flavored beer with strong salt tones, I cannot see a good place for this beer.
