Not bad. This tasted a little better than I thought it would. And at 5% ABV this would make a good session beer if you wanted to drink a lot and not have the evening end too early. I like the way I just get a little hint of lemon. With too much lemon, all of a sudden this turns into a shandy and that would suck.

I'm used to NW pale ales that tend to be a little hoppier than this, but this was a very easy drinking pale ale. Definitely tasted a little lemon that others have mentioned.

A very drinkable beer that is refreshing with sweet malts and fruity hops that are almost lemony tasting. Tap handle had a funny goose head that looked like it was in the middle of a honk.

One of the best Goose Island beers there is. A very good blend of caramel maltiness and hop flavor. Light drinking and not very bitter but the hops are certainly present. This would be a good starting point if trying to break a BMC drinker of their bad habits.

Thick rich heavy flavor with a little bite, Kind of a woody flavor i think. All around good Ale with strong distinct flavor.

Usually if it says pale ale, I run away screaming. But the brewers description is right on, a well balanced pale ale. It doesn't have the dry taste of a typical pale. A must try for any beer drinker, and if you can find it on tap...order 2.

Light and citrus-y...almost a lemony taste. Very light and refreshing, perfect for those hot, humid midwest nights.
