Goose Island Endless IPA 2.8
Can from local iga grocery A: citrusy, light oranges App: clear golden small white head and good lacing. T/p: thin to med body with short bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: it’s possibly old, couldn’t figure the dating on the can. The aroma isn’t clearly at it best end up sharing more than half with my good old friend : The Drain.

Goose Island Endless IPA 2.9
Au nez, les houblons perdent de timides saveurs d’agrumes tandis que les céréales ont un caractère poussiéreux. Le goût est vite oublié, très peu prenant, peu expressif, faible. La bouche montre un corps léger avec bulles abondantes. La finale se fait sur des notes herbacées et résineuses/florales très peu intenses. Pas si pire que ça.

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Proprietor’s 2015 3.6
Pours black. Small white head ( almost none ) smell is boozy, intense burnt malts. Taste is bit bitter , sweet, Red fruits. Booze, full, rather thin ( well, not in general. But given the abv and comparing to other bourbon county’s.... ) Nice in taste, but in smell. This really isn’t good.

Goose Island Four Star Pils 3.1
on tap @ Drake’s / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt. Clear medium golden amber color, 1" white head that stays awhile, splashes of lace. Taste is light malt with medium fizz in the swallow, and strong bittering to finish. Very light, noticeably overbalanced toward the hops, but would be suitable for a long session.

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Proprietor’s 2015 3.8
Bottle shared by an American friend, thanks a ton! Light greenish apple aroma (hmm infection coming?), maple syrup, light roast, lots of chocolate and very sweet, ends with a hint of chillies. Lovely but too sweet to finish more than the 4 oz pour I had.

Goose Island Endless IPA 3.2
Pours clear gold with a medium head. Aroma is of dank tropical fruits, maybe a little skunk and pine. Tastes is big musty, rotten peaches and pine. Very strange taste. Has a light, average carbonated body that is refreshing, minus the taste. This beer couldn’t end sooner.

Goose Island Honkers Ale 3.1
bottle poured in mug, copper color, little white head, medium carbonation, taste aint as balanced as a ESB usually is, caramel malts and mild hops, silk and low-medium bitterness. wouldnt say is bad but is kind of average, besides, it would pass a pale ale.

Goose Island Honkers Ale 2.9

Goose Island Endless IPA 2.9
Another shitty day at work, another shitty session ipa. There was a time -- to be precise, when I tried Founders All Day IPA on a road trip -- when I thought the session ipa style (which had yet to hit the Canadian beer scene the way a drunk senior citizen sideswipes a school bus) was what we needed. I take it back. We don’t need it. Just like this beer: hops & malt drowned in water. No thanks. Don’t need it.

Goose Island Matilda 3.7
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is yeast, caramel, spice, and coriander. Taste follows nose with faint notes of funk, plums and bubblegum. Finish is a little on the dry side. Very mild bitterness. It’s different, but nice. Pleasant drinking.

Goose Island Goose IPA 3.7
16 oz can poured. Likely a little past it’s prime, since I’m not sure when I bought it, or where. Great IPA for the low price though, that’s for sure. Clear golden pour with a rocky foam head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavor matches, but slightly metallic to pair. Overall a nice IPA, that I would prefer over many beers it will surly be lined up against at a less than beer friendly place.

Goose Island Matilda 3.8
Aroma: fruity and sweet with malty, bitter undertones; Appearance: light, hazy amber with white head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: also fruity, malty and spicy; nice example of belgian ale; not too yeasty; Palate: medium-heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: very nice - would buy again.

Goose Island Endless IPA 3.2
6-pack from my local Metro store. Slightly hazed, light-golden colour with a small white cap and some decent lacing. Nicely balanced aromas between the grassy hops and citrus notes. Decent bitterness with mild grass. Not super dry, so refreshing overall. Easy-drinking Session IPA with regular alcohol content.

Goose Island Goose IPA 3.4
Clear golden beer with a white head. Bitter, dry citrus aroma. Flavour is initially the same though there’s a touch of sweet citrus in there as well. It’s not the most spectacular IPA you’ll ever have and it certainly doesn’t taste it’s strength which is a bit dangerous but it’s a crisp, refreshing beer and goes down very easily.

Goose Island Private Party 3.7
Dark red pour with a single finger head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Medium bodied. Lots of lace present. Lots of pine in the flavor with a slight caramel sweetness and some cereal. Dry finish. Earthy, almost wood like notes as well.

Goose Island Green Line Pale Ale 2.2
APPEARANCE- Golden color and very clear. The white foamy head is fed continuously with effervescent bubbles. It’s quite a treat to watch. NOSE- very light, even for a pale ale. No hop, slight typical ale scent. FLAVOR- also extremely light even for a pale ale.

Bottle from Bill, pours black with small beige head. Notes of candy plum, sugar, mollases, cherry and thick syrup. This is way too sweet for me. Sticky and viscous mouth. Fuck off InBev

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Coffee 4.8
Fantastic. Tastes (and smells!) very strongly of bourbon barrel & alcohol. If I *had* to complain about anything, it would be that it seems just a hair overcarbonated for my preferences.

Goose Island Summertime 3.8
Solid all around beer for an easy drinker. Their Four Star Pils is a better summer sipper though I highly recommend that, especially for the price.

Hidden_Pooch
Goose Island Honkers Ale 2.8
Pours a clear copper with big frothy head. Aroma is of toffee, biscuit, earth, and mild pine. Tastes of sweet, candy caramel, and mild piney hops. Can’t get past the sweetness, very weird. Has a medium body with average carbonation and the aftertaste reminds me of vegetables. A real letdown from Goose Island.

Goose Island Green Line Pale Ale 2.8
Bottle. Orange biscuit malt and metallic orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Mildly sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Body a bit light. Nothing bad but pretty underwhelming - a very basic APA.

thegreenrooster
Goose Island Four Star Pils 3
Pour is a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is lager malt with some lemon juice which I’m guessing are the hops. Flavor is more of a toasted grain with some grassy hops. Not as dry as most pils, this beer has sweeter but toasted bread to it. It’s like they were going to make a vienna but stopped half way though. As a beer on it’s own it is decent and flavorful. More body and flavor than the macros that’s for sure.

Black pour. Fleeting tannish head. Not much lacing. Disappointing nose of tart maple and bourbon. Taste is the same - tart, sugary, muddled mess. Was looking forward to this one, let down. Super thin mouthfeel.

Goose Island Winter Ale 3.4
12 oz bottle from Kroger from notes. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have light toasted malts, mild nutty character, light sweetness, mild spice, some earthy notes, ok brown ale but not something I would revisit.

Goose Island Goose IPA 3.1
Goudblond met wandklevend rijkelijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: onmiddellijk een onaangename zweetgeur, hoppig en wat pompelmoes. Smaak: bitterig, hars, zoetig. Medium volmondig en medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter en iets te zoetig. Niet voor de ganzen, maar ook niet geweldig.
