look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a glass stein at the Clybourn brewpub.

For some reason, I didn't see this stuff coming in such a glass... Anyway, it pours a clear copper-russet topped by a half-finger of off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises light toasted biscuit, very mild greens, light caramel, and a hint of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, with a minor vein of toasted toffee running through the back. The caramel also comes through a bit more powerfully now. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a pretty dry finish (almost too dry...). Overall, a pretty nice Vienna lager, though nothing really all that special. I enjoyed it.

Served on tap at the Clybourn G.I. brewpub. Comes in a stein with little head that does not last long. A dark amber almost brown color that is very attractive. It tastes great. The malts used in this beer make it very good. It was a crisp clean beer that is easily sessionable.

This bottle is from the 20th Anniersary Cellar Collection. Poured from a 750mL bottle. I'll admit, it's been sitting in my fridge for about 10 months.

A: Pours a nice orangish brown with a 1 inch head that disappeared fast...could be the age of my bottle.

S: Malty, nutty, and biscuit scents are apparent.

T: Pretty smooth, slight maltiness, not a bad lager.

M: Very little carbination, goes down easy with a bit of a lingering ever so slight bitterness and metallic taste.

D: Smooth, easy to drink, goes down easy. Could see myself drinking this all night.

Part of the Anniversary Cellar collection, I busted this bottle out last night when a friend came over as I had been itching to try it. Served cold and poured into a couple of pint glasses, and consumed on 03/06/2009.

The pour was very nice with a dark amber color coming forward right away and a nice tight head of of white lace on top that managed to hang around for a few minutes before falling down into a thin veil that covered it throughout the rest of the session. The aroma was nice bready malts, hints of light bittering hops and a nice light fruit touch towards the end of the session. A clean feel here, a bit slippery but still very nice and a touch fuller then what you would normally see given the style. Lots of flavor here, earthy and herbal and very nicely done. Smooth, mellow, caramel malts fade out in the final sips and a light drying takes over as I let it simmer down. Overall a very solid lager here that by all means must be superb on tap. A solid session beer for sure.

Poured from a 750ml wax sealed "20th Anniversary Cellar Collection" bottle into a 20oz imperial pint.

The label clearly states "Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub, Chicago, IL 60614" so that's why this review is here and not in with the Fulton St. brewery reviews.

Listed as 5.4% abv

A: Pours a hazy copper color with an unfiltered appearance. This was capped by a creamy, light-tan, 4-finger head that retained for ages yet left hardly any lace on the glass.

S: Bright and fruity with a healthy dose of toasted malt.

T: See above. Fruity citrus hops and toasted malt make up the majority of flavors here. Also noted were toasted bread and biscuit.

M: Sharp and crisp with a nice underlying dry toastiness and a hint of malt sweetness.

D: Drinks very nicely. It's been a few years since I've had this and it seems a little more interesting and flavorful than I remember. I remember having this the very first time I ever went to Goose Island Clybourn way back in 1993.

3.6/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served as a medium amber colored beer with moderate white puffy head.

Smell shows distinct fruity malt characteristics, but very mild.

Taste is also mildly fruity. A bit of roasted malt is present in the background. A touch of caramel also present. But everything is very subdued.

Little taste retention.

An average beer. Went well with my Veggie burger.

(Served in a flat-sided mug)

A- The thick creamy head was light tan and looks like you could cut it with a knife. The golden-light brown body was crystal clear with a faint carbonation.

S- The note of pale malt and soft noble hops came through but they were not very strong.

T- The crisp pale malt had a faint caramel malt ,but not sweet caramel, note that give it a bit more depth. The soft noble hops in a dry finish had a slight note of sulfur. The hop bitterness hung on the back of the throat after each sip.

M- This beer has a medium light mouthfeel.

D- Smooth lager with a good full taste of spicy bitter hops but the malt didn't have enough complexity to really hold my interest.
