UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 (draft) A great beer for starting out an evening, yet interesting enough to make an entire session out of it. Smooth and malty. Tastes like it should have a higher ABV.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2007
Mondial de la bière 07. Couleur orangée-cuivrée pâle, très légèrement voilée, mousse qui reste bien. Arôme houblonné, d’agrumes, et fruité. Goût doux de houblons et de grains, bon équilibre entre les deux. Un peu mince, carbonatation moyenne. Correcte.

draft. nice orange color, hoppy citrus aroma, sweet-light malty taste with a grapefruit oily hop finish. Good and refreshing.

12 oz bottle, Wolfgang Puck’s, O’Hare Airport. Crystal copper color, white hed, nice lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and spicy hops. Big malty flavor, hops not over the top but well done. If available to me locally, I would make this my house ale.

In my opinion, not Goose island's best beer, but a very good beer nonetheless. Hoppy but actually well-balanced according to type. A good introduction to Chicago's premier craft brewery.

Blah. Bottle might be skunked. Lots of oily head. Looks pretty tasty. Aroma is mild. The flavor is muted. A slightly bitter finish, but over all leaves a clean mouthfeel. Not my favorite.

Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours amber with a tint of red with a 1 finger white head; Sweet malt, hops, a little spice to the nose; Floral and pine hops, some malt on the initial taste; Not bitter at all; A clean, hoppy, piney backtaste; A very refresing beerthat I enjoyed. The carbonation was a bit heavy to start with, but I think that may have been the lines at the bar. It did die down eventually. Good stuff!

Bottle. Fizzy medium white head sits atop a orange/amber body, very few bubbles and medium lacing. Pale and biscuit like malts in the nose with a line of fruitiness including (light spiced tea, pear, and mild pineapple). Some (SA) like eartyness, and hint of alcohol in the nose. Very refreshing in an ice tea sort of way. No really assertive hops in the brew, but still tasty. Clean, thin bodied and very drinkable. Nice lingering mild spices in the finish. "APA??" Tastes like an EPA or a bitter to me. Really enjoyed this one.
