Goose Island - Matilda 7%
Taste: Mmmmmm delicious! Even when riding a diesel train! What is that taste? Caramel, and dates - the king of dates, in liquefied form! Also, it's packed full of apricots... the juice of dried apricots and Egyptian dates.
Appearance: Excellent cap with goose motif. But where is the big honking goose you'd expect on the label?
Would you buy 2? I would guzzle two down - I'd lift my head up and pour it down, like a thirsty goose.
Would you buy 4? I would if I could afford it.
Rating (out of 7): 6****** A tremendous decadent ale. Honk!
