Good dark copper color. Nice lacing though the head does not hold up. Perfumy floral, bread and candied malt nose. Taste is flowery sweet biscuit and some mild light fruit. It’s definitely not an offensive attempt at a real English bitter. Wish I could have tasted this brew in the 90’s.

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.

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.

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!

Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was the 2nd best one.

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.

It’s OK but not really for my taste. A little too citric and bitter. Seems quite carbonated

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.
