Wow !, for those in or going to be in near Goose Island, pick a cold afternoon and grab one of these cask-conditioned beauties. Pours a deep-copper color with red highlights. Beer has very spicy, hop nose. Powerpack of malt flavors on first taste, balanced hop note on the back end with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Hint of alcohol on the palate as you would expect for 6.7%. Reminded me of Sam Smith's Winter Welcome with a slightly more complex malt flavor and little less "medicinal" taste than SS's WW. As I closed my eyes and drank this beer I could have easily been in my favorite English pub, The Dolphin in Betchworth, Surrey drinking real English ale.
This is a great beer that I imagine won't be around very long.
