Draft, at the brewery. Did not overly impress me. The other homebrewers I was sampling with opined that as it's a seasonal, the keg at the "brewhouse" (employee breakroom) was old. Still, great head, nice earthy smell, taste is fine, certainly a vast improvement over any other so-called "Irish Red" in this country. Any Goose is worth seeking out.
A reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light butterscotch, light grassy hops, light mineral notes, OK. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, nutty and smooth. On tap at Clybourn location. gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2016

Clear amber with a white head. Aroma and taste of citrus, caramel, malt and grass. Also some hints of rye.

2/3/16 Chicago (16 oz draft pour into nonic glass at Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub). Dark red pour, thin light tan lacing and head. Minimal aroma, light malt taste with hint of coffee and caramel. Thin watery texture, minimal carbonation, very easy going down. Overall good offering. charule (2257) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2015

Notes from the file last updated in 2010. Poured ruddy with a slight head. Malty aroma. Flavor malty with a touch of chocolate. (Apparently didn’t notice the rye.) Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2012

A standard red ale, well-made, but just not anything to sit an marvel at when you are drinking it which can be nice sometimes. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at GI Clybourn prior to doing some post-Christmas shopping around the area. Appearance clear amber red with thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma mostly malty, toffee does come out a bit, slight yeast presence. Taste is nice and crisp with malty backing. Medium body, medium carbonation. Solid brew. seymour (2000) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a clear reddish-brown color with chill haze and moderate off-white head. Aromas of bread, roasted barley and very faint hops. Pronounced malt-sweetness just barely balanced by hops bitterness and dryness of unmalted grain, some fruitiness from the ale fermentation. Light-body with a well-rounded mouthfeel. Well-crafted and easy to drink.
