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

Looks alot like the picture at the left. . .haha. Smells surprisingly sweet for a pilsener. Served slightly warmer than expected. Begins very strong with lots of liquor like malt flavor and some crisp hops that took a backseat. This had alot of barley in it. Goes down fairly acidic turning into a lighter lager as it finishes. Loses alot of the bite and barley malt flavor. Has some soft hints of black licorice that complement the hops nicely

pretty decent for the pils i've had. probably the best offering from goose island i've tasted so far. relatively drinkable, i suspect this tastes better in draft form.

This started off with very strong hops, but after a few sips I couldn't taste it anymore. Otherwise smooth.

Rich gold. Drippy hop nose. Long pale malts underpin a heavy wet grass blast of saaz. Well-balanced, with slight toastiness at the back.

RBSG2003 Crystal clear yellow lager. Small, white creamy head. The aroma is yeasty, floral and lightly malty. The flavor is very well-balanced. A bit on the THIN side. Light malt. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Color is a clear gold with a finger high white head of foam that faded to a reserved skim and spotty minimal lace. Smell is grassy and some floral hops and light sweetness. Taste is more of the same with a favorable little crispness, good amount of sweet malts and a toned down floral hop with a fine even finish that doesn't really linger or hold, not bad. Pretty light body, getting close to medium, nothing fancy for a pilnser. Would make for a good session beer as for its easy consumption.
