New Beer Blog Goose Island 4 Star Pils


In this beer blog, we are going to get a new beer, which is 4 Star Pilsner, from Goose Island Brewery.  When this beer was first released it was known as Blue Line Pils.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Chicago base craft brewery.

It has a clear golden color with a white constant head on this pilsner.   There is really no smell. It is hard to pick up. The taste has a slight sweet malty to a dry crisp hop aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable.

Closing, I am not a huge fan of pilsners. Just like lagers, I am always looking for the best craft pilsner.  I believe 4 Star Pils is in my top three best craft pilsners.  I am fan of Rochester Mills Pine Knob Pils.  Goose Island did a great job matching the classic beer style.  I know there will be people that will love this beer.  I can see others hating this beer.  This is a pretty good brew.  It all comes down to the price.  There is cheaper and good pilsners and lagers on the market.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
