In this beer blog, we are going sample another beer from Goose Island Brewery. It was a special release from Fulton Woods series. It is their Fulton Street Coffee Blend Golden Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Midwest craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Illinois craft brewery. Let us get into this Golden Ale.
It has a clear golden color with a semi on constant white head. The aroma has a heavy nice coffee notes. The taste has a smooth balance coffee notes with wet coffee bean aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.gooseisland.com):
Goose Island is proud to introduce Fulton St. Blend, a coffee ale aged with House Blend beans from our neighbors at Intelligentsia. Named for the street in Chicago that we both call home, Fulton St. Blend is a golden ale infused with rich coffee flavor and aroma.

Closing, everyone knows that I am a huge fan of Goose Island Brewery. It was a no brainier to pick up this new beer from them. The coffee beans that they use are the same ones that they use in their Bourbon County Coffee Stout. I knew that the coffee part will be awesome. I have to say this beer did not disappointment at all. This is a great beer. The coffee is not in your face but it is not fade. It has a nice balance. I love it. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
