Goose Island Hexnut Brown Ale

Goose Island Beer Co


I was glad to get some more of this. I had it in Chicago at the brewpub several years ago as I was just beginning to try a lot of different beers and appreciate different styles. I thought very highly of it then, and wondered if it would live up to my memories after having so many fine ales in the meantime. Thanks to a friend in Chicago that sent me a pub pack, I got to put it to the test, and it held up well. It beats Pete's and Newcastle, and is very comparable with Samuel Smiths Nut Brown, in my opinion. Definitely worth a try if you're in or near the Windy City.
