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.

Bottle thanks to drewbeerme as a bonus. Pours a mostly clear orange-copper , slight hazy and a nice fluffy lasting off beige head. Aroma is bready english crystal malts, doughy, caramel, and a large amount of orange-zest, citrrus, pinesol type cascade hops- turns a bit floral as it warms. Medium crystal malts, caramel, light roast and hitns of nuts and chocolate with a nice light resiny dirty earthy citrus hop finish- a bit of sticky bitterness too. Nice americanized ESB/Pale Ale.

Dark orange color with a full whitish head. Aroma of sweetish malt and bread. Flavor sweet and bready with barely any hops. Body a bit on the thin side.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Tasted 9/25/07. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Finger width of bone white head. Caramel aromas. Tight smooth and toasty. Moderate and medium bodied. Easy and slight. Mild bitterness. Sticky with a nice balance. Blended. Great hop palate, both in the aromas and the flavor. This is a fun drink. I’ll have this again.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Burnt copper color with a large thick head and lots of good lacing. Aroma is smoky with roasted malt. It’s faint initially, but slowly grows as the beer sits, a nice dose of fresh hops is there as well. Medium body, satisfying and fresh. Bitter, tasty, and drinks with ease. Flavor is similar to their Honkers Ale, but there’s a nice deep smoky, peaty malt taste. Roasted, nutty malt, it’s crisp with a grand hop bitterness. Nice Autumn beer, very good.

Bottled (thanks drewbeerme). Amber colour, mediumsized white head. ARoma is hops, grass, malts and some flowery bitterness. Flavour is quite the same with big grassyness and also some earthyness in the finish.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Love the bottle design - ahh, if it wasn’t 95 degrees still in southern Indiana, I might be excited that fall was actually here. Anyways, pours an autumn amber with a thin head on top. Very fresh cascade citrus hits my nose, along with a subtle back of caramel malt. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. The body is filled with grass, pine, resin, fresh orange and a mild rind bitterness. Nice and drinkable, this is really refreshing.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Pours medium amber with a nice sized head. Aroma is pretty big hops, fruity pebbles, grapefruit. Flavor is a tad soapy. Also piney hops, malts. Body is sort of thin and the finish is quite dry and bitter.

Bottle. Dark reddish amber with tan head. Subtle sweet malt aroma with a hint of caramel. Flavor is quite bitter with a dose of hops. Grassy aroma and taste.... nice bitter ale

drfabulous (6418) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Nice ESB that tastes a little like Goose’s pale ale with some extra cascades. Not an exciting beer, but also worth drinking as the weather cools.

TBone (16080) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottled
Amber color, small creamy head, some lace. Cut grass nose - quite intensive. Pale malty, a bit sweetish start and late bready hoppyness, cut grassy notes. Long hoppy aftertaste. Balanced but simple.
