A bit more challenging, this one is tart and salty. Leaves a slight pucker in the cheek. Driftwood doing what they do. Immensely drinkable, technically flawless, stylistically aware and on point.

A solid entry that gose down easy, Driftwood have made a (IMHO) text book gose. Lovely saltiness that edges onto brininess, a touch of spice, and a lovely level of tartness. The fruitier goses are good too, but this shows what can be done if you stick to the style guidelines.

I'm lucky enough to have travelled to Leipzig to try the modern prototype of gose, and this is a fine west coast facsimile.

I have no idea why anyone would be crying a river of this little taste of heaven. One might say it's a great way to introduce someone to goses. In fact one must say that, because that is exactly what it is.

Lime Margarita could be a really great take on a Gose. Personally, I just can't get over the lime-salt flavours that seem to dominate my palate. Perhaps with some tweaking this beer could be a game changer.

Me encanta cĂłmo Red Racer hizo esta cerveza. No, no es estilĂ­sticamente precisa, pero es una cerveza realmente agradable que sabe muy parecida a una margarita en las rocas. Voy a beber varios este verano.

A well balanced affair, as is to be expected from Central City. However, if I'm choosing a margarita gose then I want a sharper lime, a touch of orange in the background. a noticeable saltiness and maybe even some tequila heat. A fine gose, but margarita doesn't do it justice.

A big pineapple juice flavour, more reminiscent of a pina colada than a margarita. Some saltiness on the finish to balance the sweetness.
