Strong, fruity aroma that reminded me of Brooklyn Ale (which wasnt necessarily a good thing). Good initial flavor with dry finish.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
Chicago Trip Friday 17:30. On tap at OHare. Just off the plane. Bronze with a light head. Served a little too cold. Didnt get a strong aroma, drinking as we walked to baggage claim and out to the rent-a-car shuttle. Very hoppy beer. Medicinal hop flavour with lots of woody notes. Mouth drying finish. No malt sweetness. Like the hops but somewhat unbalanced.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Good head and lacing. Adequate bitterness, although the flavor / body didnt last very long- kind of dies at the end, and even tasted a very slight hint of sweetness / soapiness in the finish which I wasnt expecting. I like this beer, but its not in the same league as Youngs Special London or even Anchor Steam Liberty.

JoeinDahlem (1478) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2007
Dark amber beer with a little white head. Bitter fruit aroma is detectable but not too strong. Flavor is front-loaded with citrusy hop tang before rolling into a finish that is perhaps too clean. Refreshing though.

apingos (90) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2007
On tap at Giovannis in Rockford. A dark "red" with no head. Plenty of body and a well bananced ale. It had a very suttle coffee flavor. I would have this one again.

Rated 6/9/06: Amazing beer from Goose Island, to date they have yet to let me down. Pours a dirty copper color with a medium thick off-white head, ample lacing and good carbonation. The aroma is outstanding containing a slightly mellow blend of flowery hops and lots of malt. The aroma reminds me of a low key IPA. As I sip on a few of these Im amazed at the awesome flavor. The hop characteristic is near perfect. They are very present but not overdone. Strong blend of malts keep me intrigued. The balance is perfect. Full mouthfeel with a great finish and pleasant aftertaste. Fantastic beer, I cant say enough about this one.

DruncanVeasey (8217) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
355 ml bottle. Deeply murky orange pour swimming with bits. Rich, cakey, reach-out-and-touch-it florally hoppy aroma with a chewy malt background. Flavour plenty more of the same, awash with flowery orange hoppiness. Heavy but refreshing. Thickly bodied hop fruitiness far outdrinking its ABV. If only this was truly representative of a typical English pint.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 16, 2007
On tap. Poured a nice pale amber color with a decent two-finger white head that receded slowly. The aroma was malt and spice with maybe a bit of floral hops thrown in. The flavor was an above average malt backbone with some good spices spinning around it and a somewhat dry, hoppy finish. Very drinkable. A great session style beer.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2007
On tap. Pours a deep amber color with small white head. Aromas of sweet malts. Medium body with tastes of light hops. Very smooth with a nice, light bitter finish. Not bad.

12 oz bottle, Wolfgang Pucks, OHare Airport. Crystal copper color, white hed, nice lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and spicy hops. Big malty flavor, hops not over the top but well done. If available to me locally, I would make this my house ale.
