On tap at Oak & Stone. Tons of foam. Not much to sniff. A nice bit of hops keeps it from being boring, but there's a swampy thing going on that spoiled it for me.

This was called the Golden Pilsner by my waitress, but I am assuming it is the same as the Golden Goose Pilsner.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is a bright gold with a white head and a slight chill haze.

It has a fresh aroma of grains, floral and spice notes.

It is nicely hopped with mineral notes, grains and a touch of refreshing sourness late.

The mouth is crisp with active carbonation.

I liked the complexity in this hopped up pilsner. It went really well with my grilled fish tacos and tomato mozzarella salad.
