2016 Salted Gose by Angel City brewing is a 4.3% ABV German Gose.
Gose (Goes-uh) is a very, very old German beer style that has been gaining popularity stateside over the past few years. A traditional gose is a low alcohol, sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Our version is soured in the traditional way using Lactobacillus, but instead of coriander, we complement the salt with caramel and vanilla for a deliciously refreshing treat
Found this one at my local market. While I don’t often review Angel City brews since the most common ones are average to subpar at times, I have reviewed the intriguing and unique ones. It is difficult to tell the quality of Angel City’s stuff as I know they contract brew through Samuel Adams so the beers you get in bottles are not always the same as the stuff you get at the brewery. Although the beers in the bottles have been very good recently. I can’t really speak for their local stuff as I have only been there twice. Needless to say, this Salted Caramel Gose was a unique one and I wanted to bring it to the site. Let’s have try shall we? Cheers!

Very delicious gose. It is amazing how they were able to get the sweet caramels, toffee, vanilla and other flavors to meld with the salty and dry flavors of from the Gose. Simply put, a light fluffy dessert beer. I must admit, I really hope this taste just as good locally than in the bottle because bottle wise they really have a winner here. I will definitely get this again and would recommend you give this one a shot too.
Harley Quinn from DC’s Batman and Suicide Squad was used in this pairing as I wanted to pair her with attitude. The name of the beer is Salted Caramel Gose. Essentially, sweet but salty. Harley is an awesome sweet and hot looking character but she is too unpredictable and psychotic like her partner, the Joker. Well, Joker is technically leagues above her in that department but the funny part is that she can take you on a pleasure cruise before it is all over and you’ll be swimming with the fishes in the salty sea.
