Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Nice grassy herbal aroma. Taste is a nice pilsnery malt/grain/grass fest. Great saaz presence in this brew. Perfect sweetness. Mouthfeel is very full, round and creamy while still being on the lighter side. Extremely drinkable. Great pils, recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2004 rather skunky and sour-smelling, but it’s got the typical saaz-like hoppiness for the style. extremely pale yellow with a short-lived foamy head. very refreshing and tangy bite, but leaves a little too much residual bitterness. good for a summer day but not a great beer.

Bottle. Small sized white head and fine-small sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Carbonated, mostly transparent and a pale yellow hue. Malty, hoppy and somewhat of a skunky aroma. Flavor was somewhat astringent, malty and mild hops. Palate was tingly. Light-medium bodied beer with no lacing. Decent pils.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a slightly hazy transparent softly carbonated weak yellow orange color. The aroma was malty pilsnerish and slightly skunky. The mouth feel was tart mildly tingly initially then settled into a slightly astringent mild hop finish. The flavors contained notes of malt hops and bread. It was an extremely hot day and I was looking for some thing to cool me off. I thought a cold pils would do the trick, but it did not do the trick for me on this hot summers day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Saaz hop aroma with some malt background. Clear light golden color with a decent white head. Nice hop flavor with some good bread type malt flavors in the finish. I would like to have had more hop flavor in a czech style pils, it was missing that clean crisp hop flavor and bite. Still a good overall pils.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2012 Re-rate. Beer is really quite nice and soft, refreshing. Good bitterness level and clean. Lacks overall hop character, but a very nice beer to drink.
5/4/4 hazy gold, color of Mtn. Dew. Light smell, grass? and hops. interesting, yet simple taste of malt followed by hops. Average, though good for a pilsener or other lager...6/4/6/2/10

Poured with a golden head, medium head. The typical bitter smell of a pilsner comes with this one. End up wishing that I had not given the other 3 bottles away to my friend.

Not the biggest Pilsner fan but this is very good. Not bitter good flavor. Goose Island knows what they're making.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2004 Golden color with small head. Flavor was malty with hints of hops. Very crisp beer. First tasting had a grassy taste to it. Second time, several months later, yielded a more representative beer.
