A good staple beer..............................................

Seems like Goose Island’s Brewmaster has practically managed to bottle fruit salad and call it beer. Fruit aromas are very pronounced, with lashings of watermelon, honeydew melon and cherry all sitting atop a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The juicy palate shows more fruit – it’s like drinking up the leftover liquid after eating the last fruit salad cube. However, an omnipresent bitterness reminds you that this is a beer, not an Ocean Spray Cocktail. Too bad beer doesn’t contain any roughage, because this would be a great substitute for a healthy dessert.

On draft at O'Hare. Little carb creamy white head that lingers apple juice color and apple aromas. Crisp finish with sweet up front. Quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - many hops in the aroma. Grassy, citrusy and pine notes. Dirty gold color. Malty with a fairly complex hop flavor. A nice citrus hop finish. Slightly fizzy. Better than I remember it.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2004
Hazy amber with small head, fair lacing. Lots of hops, resiny, fruit with toffee in aroma with light yeast presence. Medium bodied with long bitter finish, tempered by pleasant maltiness.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with high beige head. Aroma is hops, bread, malts. Taste is light, bitter and a bit sweet with notes of bread, grass and flowers.

Pours an iced tea shade of cloudy brown with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is hearty bread (rye?) with a strong undertone of burnt sugar. Flavor is an extremely earthy marriage of yeast and malt, with hops that remind me of Fuggle or Kents and that bit of burnt sugar/caramel sweetness. Smooth texture, if not a bit sticky sweet at the tail end. All in all, not bad!
