Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale

Quick pop review.

Do you remember pop up video? Late night music video show that had 'pop up' bubbles with facts and silly comments on them. For some  reason that popped into my head whilst trying this beer.
I imagined Michael Jackson (obviously the beer hunter, not the 'keep away from my children' music one) supplying the facts, the bubbles appearing and telling me:

"cloudy, yellow in colour",
 "minimal hop flavours and low bitterness",
 "creamy body",
"yeasty but little else in flavours".

Of course these comments are my own not his, I wonder if he would be as disappointed in it as I was.

I open it today to go with some home-made pizza's myself and the kids made. The pizza was excellent, the beer not that special.


  1. I found it almost like a lager. Very disapointing, im not even sure its a wheat beer!

  2. Considering how good their other beers are, it was indeed disappointing.

  3. I don't know, I've found Goose Island's stuff to be hit or miss.

  4. My experience is probably far more limited by availability than yours i suspect, as I've only tried (and enjoyed) their Honkers Ale and IPA.

    I just checked out their website their range, which ones were a 'miss' with you?
