COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest creation is brewed in the style of a traditional American Extra Special Bitter (ESB). As Summertime fades, the sun shines less bright, and evening comes a little sooner. Harvest time arrives – it’s a time to reap the benefits of a great Summer. Fresh picked cascade hops from Washington and the richest Midwestern malts makes Goose Island Harvest Ale an extra special beer worthy of your devotion.

Opaque dark ambere brew, with a nice white head that lasts a while as well as the lacing through the whole drink. Initial aroma and slight taste of grape, date, fig, etc., followed by a strong, clean almost cutting (but not quite) hop flavor. About right for an ESB.

valpoaj (744) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Deep amber pour; frothy white head. Light aroma has hints of fruit and is dominated by toasty malts. Very nice flavor...a good deviation from the traditional autumn ales. Hoppy flavors don’t go over the top, and combine with some toasted nut accents and smooth caramel malts. I’m not the type to comment much on the lacing a drink leaves, but WOW, this beer leaves a ridiculous amount of lacing on your glass. A quality, not-a-run-of-the-mill brew from the folks at GI

Tap @ GI – Clear dark amber, creamy white head. Fresh earthy grapefruit nose sit on rich molasses and toasted caramel notes. Well balanced soft earthy grapefruit flavors balance on touches of pineapple and sweet toffee malt. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry, lightly bittersweet finish. Good brew to session while watching Sunday football…

12 oz bottle. Smells of toasted wheat bread and malts. Pours a nice copper-brown, nice little white head. Wasn’t looking forward to this as I think the whole "harvest/Oktoberfest" style is overkilled this time of year. I know, when else are you gonna have it, but this is actually pretty good. Nice toasty taste, decent mouthfeel, doesn’t leave a coating on the tongue. Nice beer.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 31, 2007
12oz. bottle. Fruity, toasty aroma, lightly citric and malty, some wood, pine and hop spice along with faint orange notes. Orange-amber color, very lightly hazy, with a lasting, fine head and matching lace. Flavor is nicely balanced and mild, some light, toasty, honeyish and caramel malt sweetness blended with fresh, fruity hops, these gently citric and spicy, lending considerable drinkability. Soft, smooth palate, body is light-medium. Not a strongly hoppy Harvest style, perhaps even a touch too unassuming.

From the bottle, not much head, but some very good flavor. Nice regular release from Goose.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle. Orange hue. Tan dense foam. Low head retention. Interesting hop character on nose, some citrus but also some pepper notes. Nice maltiness with clean finish that is on the dry side. Slightly yeast/meaty note.

Can’t remember who donated this one, but thanks! Orange color with a faint citrus hop nose. Creamy mouth feel with citrus hop falvor.

Tessic (1152) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2007
This ale poured a dark orange colour with a fast disappearing head. To the nose there was heavy scents of lemon and orange citrus, hopps, grass and pine sap. First taste wasn’t as bitter as I expected. Full flavours of citrus with caramel and honey. The finnish is hoppy but not as bitter as expected. This beer ends at a hoppy bitterness that is very light.
