2.4
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20Chad9976 (1592) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2016

 
2015 BJCP Category: 27 Historical Beer: Gose

AROMA: Faint sea breeze, little else. 5/12

APPEARANCE: Lager-like golden hue; mostly clear. Large, brilliant froth; excellent lacing. /3

FLAVOR: Wheat base is evident throughout. Salt lingers in the background. Cucumber on the finish; coriander in the aftertaste. Almost no tartness and no sourness whatsoever. Not accurate reflection of style guidelines. 9/20

MOUTHFEEL: Surprisingly heavy body for the style. Crisp, but not refreshing. Starchy aftertaste. Easy to drink, but not to style. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: A poor representation of the style. Might be fine for outsiders not ready for the taste of a true gose. 5/10

TOTAL SCORE: 24/50
