COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest creation is brewed in the style of a traditional American Extra Special Bitter (ESB). As Summertime fades, the sun shines less bright, and evening comes a little sooner. Harvest time arrives – it’s a time to reap the benefits of a great Summer. Fresh picked cascade hops from Washington and the richest Midwestern malts makes Goose Island Harvest Ale an extra special beer worthy of your devotion.

Ericular (686) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber with decent head that lasts a little while. Not much lacing, but this looks great at first. Aroma is sweet with caramel and a little citrus. Taste is moderately sweet with some citrus in the middle, and a pleasant aftertaste with just a touch of hop bitterness. Fades pretty quickly and leaves you wanting more. Super drinkable.
