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.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
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.

Golden classic pilsner color. Thin white head with good persistent lace ring. Grassy hop aroma with a hint of sweetness. Sweet and well balanced with a good hop flavor and a little more body than most American Pilsners. Does not have the malt flavor of Czech beers(i.e. Pils Urq), but is decent and drinkable.

Had this on tap in Chicago. Aroma has green grass and a little toffee. There is a decent hops bite. The color is very pale with very little head. Good for the style.

Nice light yellow in color with a quickly vanishing head. Refreshing with a smooth aftertaste of hops.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Aroma had a hint of hops and the coloring was very yellow with a slight amount of head. There was a much stronger taste of grapefruit than I had expected in the initial tasting, but it toned down to a much lighter aftertaste of minimal hops.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - NOV 13, 2003
A fairly good pilsener. Looks just like it should, smells fresh and just a bit hoppy. Taste is the same as the smell. I like it better than the other Goose Islands I've had, and I will certainly buy it again sometime.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet malty nose with a hint of hops. Malt flavor collides midway with sharp hops, and then both fade out.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Bottle: Yellow hue with small fizzy head and little lace. Aroma hinted of toasted malt, biscuit, hayfield, aromatic hops, light citrus, apple, and vanilla. Taste comes off hops and zesty initally but then fades into a mix of malt and hops, neither of which stands out, smooth and not very crisp. Bitter aftertaste with a slight metallic finish. An okay Pils which, if I remember was better on tap than this bottled version. Quaffable.
