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.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
GABF 2007. A clear golden beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with grassy notes of hops. The flavor is very malty with notes of newly harvested grain, leading to a dry straw finish. Weird how big the difference between aroma and flavor is.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2009
Botle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Lovely citrusy hops. Medium body, very dry fruitiness but completely dominated by the citrusy hops. Nice one but so much not an ESB! 151109

<i>Bottled at Monk’s Café & Bryggeri, Stockholm. </i> Clear amber, firm creamy head. Sweaty mango aroma. Medium sweet with chewy rounded mouthfeel. Some sugar, lots of tropical fruits .Solid body and a finish with above medium bitterness. A hop driven, yet well balanced very American style ale. Really good!

Draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location
Bright amber color. Nice aroma of American hops. Good malt, caramel and toffee flavor, some sweetness but also a bit dry, with a finish of good hops, balanced, more resiny than fruity (but it’s supposed to be Cascade). Also this one is very well brewed.

Bottle at home ... brown ... thin white lacing ... sweet bright hop ... over fizzy ... sweet summer fruits ... quite hoppy ... but very very light fruity... ok but not really hitting the spot.
