Good Bottle beer now being served on tap at a few of my favorite bars locally. Interesting flavor and refreshing taste. Ill have to get down to the brewery sometime and try it fresh.

Couldnt even tell that this was a pale ale. The hop presence was almost non existent. Below average for me.

12 oz bottle from a Variety pack. Beer pours to a amber color with a minimum head. Small hop nose with some malt aroma. Taste is of malt and very smooth with a bit of a bitter hop finish. A Goose Island standard that has always drank well

Got a 6 pack of this for my Birthday last year. My friend from Indiana said this was her favorite regional beer, now I see why.

Draft. I thought this was a below average pale ale, as the hop presence was not there. The malt flavor was nice and drinkable, but the beer needed some hop balance.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass, cloudy orange with almost no head. (This was an aggressive pour, wondering if the bottle was a bit flat.) The aroma was dominated by roasted malt. The flavor was a nice balance of roasted malt and hops. Very smooth, little bitterness. Nothing stands out too much, but a smooth drinakable session beer.

Good Session Beer....Im on number 6 right now....hicup Pours burnt orange colored with a nice head that fades quickly. Aroma is not offensive and not very strong. Tastes like most pale ales. Its a staple that Chicago can be proud of!

So my layover is at Chicago OHare and I have two and a half hours to kill. I walked all over every concourse to find a restraurant and bar that had something Ive never seen or had. After about 40 minutes of walking I went by a Chilis and I noticed people sitting with beer bottles with this red label on it, I had never recognized that and thought it would be a local micro brew. So I got a bottle and poured it into a pint glass... Burnt orange tone with a small white head. Sweet, mildly malty and hoppy aroma. Highly carbonated palate with flavors of hops, berries, caramel and a nice malt balance with a light nutty background. Label describes this as a perfect blend of hops and malts and Id say Id almost agree with that.
