Goose Island Preseason Lager

This is a 5.8% ABV lager with grapefruit and pine aromas. It is from the Goose Island Beer Company of Chicago, Illinois (now owned by AB-InBev).

The beer pours a dark amber and copper in color. There is an inch of light tan head. The aroma is very mild, just a touch of malt and tanginess. The taste is caramel malt with grapefruit and pine bitterness. The finish is both sweet and dry, with a prominent bitterness. Some pine comes in as it warms.The beer is smooth and drinks easy. This has almost no aroma, and its mild taste is overwhelmed by bitterness. This gets better as you drink through it, but it is not very good.
