Goose Island Kilgubbin Red Ale
12 oz bottle
Moderate pour in an English pint
Brewed spring 07, consumed 06/07
Poured a clear amber with a moderate somewhat diminishing eggshell white fizzy head.
Smelt of moderate toasted malt, toffee and grassy perfumey hops.
Flavor was upfront moderate to strong bitter toasted malt and grassy hops and light sweet toffee followed by more of the some, but a bit stronger on an average finish.
Palate was light to medium bodied, lively carbonated, watery and lightly astringent.
Overall, another great Goose product. Easy to drink and keeps the taste buds happy.

Served on-draught into a 16 oz nonical pint glass at Goose Island Clybourn over St. Patrick's Day weekend. Reviewed from notes. 5.1% ABV per their menu. "Irish Red Ale."
A: Pours a one finger head of white colour. Fair cream. Fair thickness. Below average retention, Body colour is a nontransparent auburn-copper. Semitranslucent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Light toasted red malts. Very mild floral hopping. Maybe a hint of berry. Fruity and evocative. A mild strength aroma. Hints of syrup. I'm excited to try it.
T: Imbalanced. A mess of toasted malt, syrupy amber malts, generic light floral hops, and berry. Downright wrong for the style. Built poorly. Little complexity of subtlety. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Meh. Very disappointing.
Mf: Syrupy, smooth, and wet. Carbonation is merely adequate. Not at all right for the style.
Dr: A failed attempt at an Irish red. Syrupy. Borderline crap. Wouldn't get this one again, though it hides its modest ABV alright. Goose Island can do far better.
Serving type: nitro-tap
