HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2004
On tap, April ’03 at Wrigleyville. Deep red color. Seemed to be a english style ale. Lots of hop profile in the nose and flavor. Some fruitiness. Very quaffable beer. This is a great example of why to drink fresh beer. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2003
On tap at Wrigleyville before a Cubs game (which they won, Hey!). Nice red/brown color and solid small head. Very malty with a fruity undertone (blackberry?). Taste was sweet but well balanced with the hops cutting through. Same fruity character is noticed on the palate as well, which was a good thing. Finished clean with no bite. Very glad to enjoy this seasonal beer with my friends and family. Among Goose Island's better brews.
