The best about The Goose is that the brews are fresh. The food is hearty and plentiful. Nice combination, huh? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Unclear muddy brown color. Nose is toffee and Earthy hop. Flavor is light toffee, bready malt, some piney hops. Not much complexity. Medium bodied, lightly sweet finish. Notes of nuts. Easy enough to drink.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma is sweet. Appearance is dark brown with a nice head. Flavor is of malt and some brown sugar. No intense hop flavors as the description would lead you to believe. Nice full palate and not overly carbonated. A very drinkable brown ale.

On-tap at the brewpub in New London, NH. One finger head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a some lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Malty nose. Starts balanced, brewer has it "full of hops" but the hops are not in your face. Slight bitter finish.

3.1
tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2005
Fair American hop aroma with some underlying maltiness. Amber-brown body is topped by a decent cover of white head that recedes with some lacing. Fair malt body with some roastiness. Medium body with decent carbonation and a smooth texture. Sampled at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Nice murky brown body is topped by a whiff of beige creamy, sticky and well laced. Caramelic and nutty aroma emanates on a earthy background and is backed by aptly subdued mellow hops. Doesn’t quite hold up flavourwise even if the nose was quite light. It has a strong aftertaste with a bit too much sourness, in a nutty way somehow, slightly vegetal and woody as well. Smooth bodied though, creamy yet moderately carbonated. Good brewpub beer.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2005
Earthy, nutty sweetness treads on the shy hop end-bitterness...Toffee uneasily participates at the onset of mild sourness...Very easy drinking for what it advertises...
