Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale

This beer was a bit warm (purchased and left in the open air for between 30 minutes and an hour). There was a slight bitterness.

The beer might have tasted better if it were colder, because then it'd have been less bitter. Otherwise, the beer reminded me most of a Natty Boh. However, as it stands, I'd certainly rather have a cold Natty Boh than this partially cold can of Goose Island 312.
