Clear yellow-gold w/ small white head. Clean malt & hops on the nose. A little thin on the palate. Crisp, biscuity sweet malt flavour w/ a nice saaz hoppiness.

(draft): Apple juice body with small white head. Aroma is sweet, apple, lightly hopped (faintly grassy). Taste is moderately sweet up top, turns mildly bitter (grassy). Medium body.

hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2003
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.

I really enjoyed this Pils. It had just the right amount of hoppiness and a good malt taste.

Very light/chardonnay color with a minimal white head. Theres an abundant hop presence here, both in smell and taste.This one certainly blurs the line between Pils and APA. Crisp and clean floral taste with a very hoppy aftertaste. Suprising amount of lacing for such a small head. This beer is definately underrated as far as the percentile.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
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...

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Nice pilsener, crisp, dry, European hop presence. Drank on a hot day-perfect.

Clean and light describes this well. Flavor is very reminiscent of the European Pilsners. I enjoyed this more than most of the other Goose Island beers I've sampled.
