    Goose Island in New Mexico

    GI is starting to show up on tap in restaurants here in Carlsbad, but I'm not as happy as I should be. Last time I went out I had a Honkers and a 312 but they were both terrible-absolutely tasteless. I sent the 312 back thinking they had given me a Bud light. So as much as I've enjoyed Goose Island in Chicago(mostly at O'Hare) I'm really disappointed in the product Spudweiser is sending down here. Have you guys/gals seen it where you are and if so is it the good beer it should be?

    My No. 2 Son and I recently tried 312 for the first time but why we didn't record its score is beyond me. As I remember however, it wasn't so very great

    Corky I found your comparison with Bud Light absolutely hilarious, you've made my day

    All too often the GI beers that show up on tap in restaurants (even in Chi-town) are 312 and Green Line, probably the least notable beers in the GI line, even before the assimilation. Surprised the Honkers didn't make a better impression, though.
    On deck: a clone of Carolina Beer Co's Rye Stout, clone of Breckenridge's Vanilla Porter,
    Primary: Schwarzbier
    Secondary: Dortmunder, Hopweizen
    Keg Conditioning: Dunkelweizen, Roggenbier, Okto, Ord. Bitter
    On tap: Alt, Hefeweizen, Cigar City Maduro clone, Mild
    Bottled: Mead, Quad Rajet, Granola Bar Braggot

    Too much of everything is just enough.
