Reviewing the Hansel And Gretel from Goose Island Brewing Company out of Chicago, Illinois. This beer was the highlight of the Thanksgiving-themed ales they brewed for the festival.
Score: 93

Tap pour served in a FOBAB taster glass and enjoyed at FOBAB on 11/17/12. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Deep mahogany in color with ruby transparencies. Served with a thin layer of tan head. Good lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Cinnamon, gingerbread and sugar cookies. Christmas spices and cocoa too. 4.5/5

Taste: Tastes just like it smells! Cinnamon and gingerbread cookies. Less cocoa on the palate than in the nose. Slight prickly Christmas spice kick in finish. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is this beer's one weakness. Medium-light bodied, low carbonation. The beer is frankly "waterier" than desired. Slightly sweet, mildly sticky. 3.5/5

Overall: This was one of my favorite "new" beers at FOBAB, and it is one of the few beers that I went back for seconds (and thirds) of at the festival! It tasted just like a Gingerbread cookie, with added flavor complexities. Yum! Another hit from Goose Island's experimental brews.

Recommendation: If you ever see this on tap, pounce!

Pairings: Gingerbread cookies.

Cost: N/A
