This bock is a mild twist on the traditional malt-bill of the style. The color is golden and it is a beautiful beer in a glass. The taste strikes a good balance of malt and hops. This beer will pair well with a variety of foods. All that said, I prefer a more traditional bock.

Nice beer for its style that pours cloudy yellow and has a nice head. GB always has a good presentation. Bit of a bit but a good alcohol content for their beers. I have been alternating between this and the summer lately.

Draft sample @Syracuse location. Clear yellow color some head and lace. Nose and flavor is the same. Decent balance of hops and malt. It’s true to the style just a tad boring. Maybe upping the hops would help kick this up a notch. Body is thin and watery. Meh

From tap. Golden color with decent head. Aroma was esters and bread. A taste followed with a little bitter and sweetness. Esters threw me here.

Airport beer - not that good, should have stuck with the hefeweizen rather than feeding my need to try new inferior beers.

Scoff at Gordon Biersch if you must, but at least they are right upfront about their beers. These are not the overly hopped West Coast abominations, but the proper balance between hops AND malt, resulting in a balanced brew just like the Germans make. Sure they make some weaklings, but overall the German way is the proper way, and will remain long after the current pine tree fetish runs its course.

Pours gold color with 1 inch creamy white head. Smell is of malts, some hops and a floral or citrus undertone. Taste is of sweet malts, some hops and a dry bready finish.
