3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear copper color into pint glass. Little to no lacing. Taste is predominantly carmel malts with hints of citrus and spice. Undernotes of overroasted malts are slightly out of character. Very crisp and clean. Not my favorite, but fine enough.

This breweryís other products set a tough standard to match. This one falls a little short. Clean finish, and moderate hops, but more mass-produced in character.

Weak-looking as it pours, nice darkish head, good lacing.
Spicy in a very drinkable fashion.Hops smooth. A pretty good effort and one Iíll try again.

Draught at The Cheesecake Factory, Skokie, Illinois. Served way too cold but once it warmed up, it was a fine beer. It had a nice spicy and grassy aroma with a flavour of orange rind and hops.

Tap at Kitty OíSheaís. Arrived a brownish gold color with just wisp of a white head. The aroma was faint sweet malt and a little bit of a hops. Not overly complex on the palate, but definitely hearty enough. The flavor was initially bready and slightly malty with the bitter hops kicking in in the middle and then a lightly sweet finish. Pretty good beer, Iíd drink it again if I could find it in FL.

This isnít one of my favorite Goose Island brews. Honestly, the Honkerís Ale tastes a bit like it has geese in it.

Pours a copper color with a whitish head that goes away fairly quickly. Tastes of malt and some nutty flavorings. Malt to the nose as well.
I got this beer in a sampler pack and I think I’ll actually buy this one alone.

Tap at Top Hops. Pours a clear golden orange. Head dissipates, moderate lacing. Scent nearly non existent.. light spice. Taste is a bitter.. spice and hops are well balanced. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Refreshing but not my one of my favorite styles.
