Tap-Goose Island Clybourn-RBSG-6/29/03. I sat right next to bigbadbear63 when we sampled this. We had similar agreements on this beer, but my ratings will not be as good as his. Dark, Ruby red appearance with good lacing. Aroma was full of citrus/lemon. palate was very one dimensional and thin-all hops, no malt. Would be excellent if the body was a bit thicker.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish hue with an average head and good lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Nice tart (grapefruit) and mild malt aroma, much like a newborn port. Woody and citrusy taste, lingering malt aftertaste. Thin and lively mouthfeel. A nice brew not to be confused with the standard Goose red.
