Poured into a snifter glass. Was on top floor/bar in the 3rd largest building in Chicago so it only seemed right to go for a Goose Island beer. Nothing really special about this one. Reddish color with a malty-esc aroma/flavor. Beer wasn’t special but given the circumstance it was a great beer.

Drink Goose Island Honkers Ale: It’s malty ass shit! Pours dishwater brown from bottle. Not much aroma. Big caramel on the tongue along with a shitload of carbonation. Finishes foamy.

On draft. Pour was amber with minimal head. Taste was mild in all aspects with a fruity/floraly hop flavor and light caramel maltiness. Boring session beer that was decent.

Onslow (1372) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2012
pour from a 12 oz bottle. Amber bre with energetic head. Aroma of spice, fruit, a little vineous. Taste is mild malts with a dry finish, pleasant and drinkable but rather simple. Bottle is out of date so I’ll revisit with a fresh one. Ovaerall, pleasant nice brew.

Pours a clear deep amber color with a large white head and decent lacing. Nose is very fruity along with spicy hops. Taste is crystal malts with citrus hops and a touch of tropical fruit. Light-bodied and easy drinking beer.
