COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toffee brown, medium-bodied, with a creamy head and an aroma of raisins and freshly baked dark bread. Mild Winter’s rich caramel malt and spicy rye flavors are sure to take the bite out of whatever Old Man Winter brews up for you this year.

This was pretty solid, but also kind of average. Very creamy and smooth for a rye beer, I expected more robust spiciness. Goes down easy though to the point where I wouldnt mind having a few of these.

Pours amber with a nice head that gives way to solid lacing. Aroma is similar to flavor - a very good toffee flavor with only a hint of bitterness. I just wish this mild ale was classified correctly so I could get credit on ratebeer.

pours an amber color with nice white head. A good solid beer that taste a little fruity, but not overpoweringly so. 12 oz. bottle

Newk (299) - - JAN 9, 2012
poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color with a 1" head very grain driven nose. Crackers and rye grains along with roasted malts, chocolate and some toffee as well medium bodied, but lacking a bit in the flavor department. Mostly roasted malts, some coffee and grains. Very good smooth feel though. It doesn’t drop off at any point A very good and drinkable beer. Tasty, but seems to lack a slight bit for me

I really enjoy a beer thats taste is as the aroma advertised. The flavors unfold in layers starting with malt then caramel changing into a mild coffee and rye then hops finish quick and exciting.

fidemaster (281) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a clear medium brown in color with a solid white head. Aroma of caramel and maple syrup. The taste is of Carmel, and malt. Has a bitter finish. I like it and its a solid choice, but for Goose Island I feel like they could have made it better.

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Draft. Creay head that had nice retention, off white/tan. Nice rasion aroma with a slight malt backing. Very soft medium body beer. Malt forward, slight malt sweetness with a hint of caramel. Excellent beer. Nice mild winter seasonal.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Pours an amber brown with a thick off-white head. Aromas of rye bread and caramel. Spicy flavor up front from the rye with a long dry finish. A very nice sesion ale.
