Not much of a winter guy but this was dark and malty with not too many spices except for a little rye which balanced out the heavyness.

Pours a clear light brown body with a nice one finger frothy beige head. The nose is nice and subtle with some light nutty and toasty malts and a light addition of aroma hops. A little bit of lightly roasted coffee as well. The flavor is pretty spot on for the style from those Iíve had. Light chocolate and toasted malt with a little light huskiness. Nice balanced bitterness that lingers on the finish for the perfect amount of time before the malt reemerges. Light to medium bodied with a watery texture, while not being thin. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty darn good beer. Wish there were more Milds available, or maybe just that the ones out there were as good as this.

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, smallish head, crystal clear brown colour, aroma of cola, dark bread and hints of charred wood, flavour of chocolate cake with some woodiness, a touch coarse bitterness and some sourness that do not blend together well but still quite drinkable.

Dark brown, thin high head that dissipates after a few minutes. Thick chocolate like taste but a little bitter

355 ml brown bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color with a thich tan head. Malty plus aromas. Medium body with creamy mouthfeel. Semi-dry malty flavor. Nice rich blend of dark malt flavors with slightly dry finish. OKAY.

Bottle. Best Goose Island Iíve had. Deep brown color. Some head. Taste is slightly of fruit cake. Aroma is a pleasant malty sweet one. Nice.

Nothing too fancy here. Solid, very drinkable, and strong enough. The rye adds a nice touch.

Almost is like a porter. Dark full bodied with some notes caramel. Is a good choice. Not able to find this up north ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mild malt smell, dark body translucent to the light, lacking something in taste. Bland smooth flavor but lacking body. Overall a good winter offering that isnít too spiced.

Sampled at the W&C Ballas open house. It poured a clear copper color with a beige head. The aroma was medium sweet with caramel, raisin and some spiciness. The taste was medium sweet with spiciness, raisin and caramel.
