Goose Island | Winter Ale

Goose Island | Winter Ale
Stacey Goers

ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 25

Goose Island’s Bourbon County line is generating a great deal of buzz for the brewery — but their classic Winter Ale should not be overlooked this season.

winteraleThis brown ale has a dark pour, but doesn’t boast a great deal of head. On taste, it first hits with caramel notes and strong sense of malt, but that’s instantly balanced with a lack of weight from the beer. It’s not heavy; it’s not a porter nor does it try to be one. It has some chocolate flavor and is slightly nutty. It’s a straight forward, medium-bodied beer. Exactly down the middle — and it’s refreshing.

We enjoyed this beer as an after-dinner drink (not really dessert, as we already had that) following some tapas. It was nice to have a beer with flavor that didn’t sit in the gut.

Don’t consider it a light beer by any means, rather just easy drinking.

Staying warm with our Winter Ale. #GooseWinterAle
