Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a glowing darker golden hue, some orange, light hazr, frothy whitish head dies to a film. Aromas are citrusy orange, grainy malts, cereal, bread, grass, orange marmalade. Initial is sweeter, touches of grassy and orange rind bitterness, light cheerios, bread, pale malts, grainy cereal malts. Touches of lemon, grainy and dry malts, light yeast, gentle carbonation. Finish is dry and sweet, light thicker orange citrusy bite. Fruit and dry. Crisp and clean, but flavorful. An orange slanted pils which is weird, seems very American. Tasty, finishes clean yet flavorful. Fresh.

On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Pours a light yellow with a medium sized white head. Light grain and sweet citrus.Light, crisp, grainy, a little cereal, toast. Earthy and grainy finish, a little bitter. Bit of a lawnmower beer, but a good lawnmower beer.

Pours very clear white. Moderately bitter flavor but also pretty watered down so itís not overwhelming but also not very good. I guess if youíre a big Pilsner fan this might satisfy you, but I think more complex flavor was possible.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2010
tap at blind tiger ale house for GI event: aroumatic and grassy, pale yellow, caramel and smooth. Odd tasting. astringent and corny. not sweet or spicy enough for a pilsner, imo.

Sample at Clybourn as Golden Goose. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Malty nose with some crisp hop. Mostly malty flavor with a bit of crisp hop. Good represenation of a style thatís just not my favorite.

GABF 09 as Golden Goose Pils. Pours a light clean golden with a thin white head. Aroma is cracker pils malt, light breadiness, toast, green grassy hops- slight butter or off DMS. Flavor is slight slick diacetyl when it warms, toast, cracker pils, crisp and clean in the end with a nice herbal and spicy hop bitterness- slight citrus hint comes as well when it warms. pretty good overall but not great.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Tap at the brewpub (Clybourn location): Light golden pour with a white consistent film. Crackery dry pils aroma- yet it has a touch of diacetyl. Light crisp refreshing body. Has a fresh clean flavor with only a touch of sweetness- more crackery pils and zesty lemon peel and mild peppery saaz hop notes in the finish. Pretty solid pils, minus the buttery aromatics.
