Brewer Description: (from website) A refreshingly hoppy American pale ale, Itty Bitty Goose is another edition in our “Small Bird Series” of lower ABV pale ales. The nose is an ripe apricot, lemon, and lightly toasted malt. Citrus peel and grassy hop flavors fill the palate and ends in a soft yet crisp mouthfeel. Dry and effervescent, light to medium bodied.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 24th July 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark yellow orange colour with a just over one finger frothy bubbled white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Orange, lemon, citrus peel, grapefruit, biscuit malt, pine and grass with a hint of apricot.
Taste: Starts a bit empty before being filled by orange rind, orange, lemon and grapefruit with hints of apricot, peach, pine and biscuit. Lightly bitter on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Started out a bit weak before improving on the finish. However, this was not one of the better ones in the Small Bird Series as I preferred both Tiny Chicken and Skimpy Sparrow over this.
