3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
