Poured a cloudy dark amber, more hefe in appearance than pils. Aroma is bitter as is the flavor. The hops add a bitter twang in a bad way. Not a very good pils. Hard to finish one bottle. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Slightly Hazy Amber Color, Big Frothy Head, Lasted for a While, Decent Lacing. Faint Straw Aroma. Malty, Bready, Earthy, Light Bitter Finish. Medium Body, Lightly Buttery. It’s Pilsener, so it is not that exciting as a style overall. Plus, If original recipe is used then you have to account for taste and drinking differences today and when it was brewed the first time. Nothing too good, Nothing Too bad. Main Attraction is that it is Local Product. Let’s hope, company that is trying to revive this brand is successful and puts out more beers that are more exciting and tasty. OK. Niko100 (2889) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Nice amber/gold color; Medium body; Aroma malt, grass, & some floral hops; Flavor of slight sweet malt, grain, some hops, and light citrus; Finish is crisp & slightly bitter; Decent. rxeight (3043) - Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Chicago’s original craft beer? Introduced a year after Goose Island? Regardless of the claims, this is a light american lager. Maybe a miller lite with a touch of the skunk filtered out. Beerowulf (115) - , Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle poured into pils glass. Some aroma of hops, but nothing special A nice golden hue and moderate lacing. Bit of a tangy aftertaste but watery overall. An avg pils at best.

Golden color, small white head. The aroma is Saaz, hops and Pilsner malt. The flavor is similar, but with an overly strong bitter finish that is a little dry. Body is nice. 88DrawTap (13) - Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Fruity aroma. Golden with red hues. Malt sweetness followed swiftly by the earthy spiceyness of the saaz hops. Very full mouthfeel for a pils (of any type). Each sip got more earthy as it warmed up...if it wasn’t 18F in my garage, I probably wouldn’t have finished this one. jtclockwork (16436) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Odd beer. Gushes like a geyser from the bottle. What’s left is cloudy gold with white head. Nose is fantastic - lots of brett, citrus, lemon and fruits. Taste is mostly dry cereal with a metallic finish. Probably the biggest difference between aroma/taste that I ever had in a beer. Light body.
