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 Ė itís 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.

Pours a crystal clear dark amber with a medium beige head with good lacing. Aroma of citrus, orange and floral hops fill the nose. Taste is citrus and orange undertones, with good amount of caramel malt as it warms up followed by floral and earthy hops bitterness on the end for balance, A medium body, smooth with moderate carbonation. The finish slowly mellows out to a flavorful caramel malt, a bit of orange peel, some grains followed by some good floral earthy hops bitterness for balance and a bit of a nutty flavor as well. Overall a good, tasty and enjoyable brew.

Tap at Woodshed. Pours a clear dark amber color with a foamy white head. Aroma is quite malty, with a gentle breadiness. Slight spice and autumn aromas. Flavor is nice, mellow and smooth. Plenty of malt with a touch of a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Clear copper, loose white head. Smells very faint, but I get a little caramel and maple and other vaguely "Fall" aromas. Nicely sweet flavor, caramel and subtle woody notes.

Tap at Bijamís Bistro, Chicago. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt hop yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a hoppy yeast liqourice bitter and slightly metallic palate. More like an IPA than a harvest ale.
