Brewed By: Goose Island Beer Co.
If you like coffee for the taste and are looking for a unique flavor of beer to try, Goose Island made this one for you. Right away, you smell the coffee blend in the beer and it transitions to a coffee aftertaste. Besides that, there’s a transition from coffee to a sweeter smell right before you drink it. The beer is a lighter caramel/golden ale color. For being a beer with coffee in it, it’s actually a lighter type of beer.
Goose Island says this beer is, “a golden ale infused with rich coffee flavor and aroma.” Until I checked their site, I didn’t know that Goose Island used Intelligentsia coffee beans for this beer. Another reason to like this beer if you’re a Chicagoan. To summarize this beer review, if you like a lighter style of beer and you like Intelligentsia, you have to give this local beer a try.
