Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale

This 5.4% ABV beer is from the Goose Island Beer Company of Chicago, Illinois. Now that they are owned by Anheuser-Busch In-Bev, this is brewed in Baldwinsville, New York and Fort Collins, Colorado. According to the bottle, since they are from the city that invented the skyscraper, they constructed this beer "on a balanced malt backbone so the citrus hop aroma and crisp flavor can stand tall."

The beer pours a clear, gleaming, light copper in color. There is a short and thin white head. The aroma is lightly fruity, tangy, zesty, citrus, grapefruit, passion fruit, a touch of peach. The taste is crisp toasted malt, tiniest bit of nuttiness, lightly covered by the hop fruit flavors. There is a light bitterness on the finish. This drinks very crisp and refreshing. The flavors are light, but it is a nice easy drinker.
