Chicago, home to more Czechs than any city outside the Czech Republic, is a fitting home for America’s finest Pilsner. Goose Island Pils is craft brewed and cold lagered for a crisp refreshing taste.

Golden color, noble hop aroma, crisp pilsner malt flavor, light body

A bit more malty than I like in a pils. Think pilsner as in Miller rather than pilsner as in Urquell. For the price it should be much better than it is.

Nice hoppy nose out of the bottle. The flavor is mostly hops with a litte malt thrown in. Clean spicey flavors throughout this beer. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2004 Very little in the way of aromatics, some very slight hops/malt. Somewhat typical appearance as well, clear pale golden color with less effervescence than I may have expected. Flavor profile has some light maltiness, but mostly it has hops! Spicy hops, tastes like there could be Saaz and maybe one or two other kinds. Finish is also spicy and hoppy, not too dry, though, a bit of malt wends its way there as well. I’d take this Pils over a lot of the ones I’ve tried from different parts of Europe, but it’s not really spectacular or anything. I do like the hop character, though, it’s refreshing. Pretty good for these summer months.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 Clear golden color with a decent white foamy head that doesn't seem to last very long, light grassy and flowery aroma, balanced malt and hop flavors, light to medium body with a crisp mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, all in all a pretty good pils.

not very assertive in aroma as a pilsner should, but still a pleasant beer.

very similar to the summertime i think, but a little less german style flavor-good none the less

Straw color, with a fairly thin head. A cross between a german, czech, and american pilsner. Not sharp hopped enough for a german pils, to thick for an american pils, and the malt not there for a czech pils. Not a bad beer, just a little to muddled.
