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.

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.

A wet-soil-covered-with-eggs stink hovers around the bready yeast...But an interesting stink, if such a thing is possible...Pomelos simmer with hearty hops and the thought of sulphur is vanquished...A very unique memento of it all lingers in the throat for awhile...

Hint of diacetyl but it if it was czech style you generally find a little, but this was just slightly too much for my sensitive taste buds.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2006
On tap at Clybourn. Poured a clear, brighter golden with a short layer of looser white bubbles. The nose was lighter, sporting bready malts and hints of citrus (perfect for the 90 degree weather). Pils and bready pale malt base... lighter lemony notes surround the tongue... almost sharp at times, but never astringent. Smooth and lighter-bodied with medium carbonation. Very refreshing!

deyholla (6966) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Sampled from the tap at the Clyborn location. Poured a clear yellow wihth a white head that dissipated quickly and completely. Aroma had notes of crisp grass and hay but not much else. Flavor was similarly simple with hay in the start with grass coming out in the finish.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Draft in sampler at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Notes of grass, straw, and sweet and pils malts. Light-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Crisp all the way through, but not as clean as a better pils because the malt lingers for so long.
