Tap at the Washington DC restaurant. Amber coloured with a thick white head. I’ve have honestly never come across such a seriously mis-named beer. This is a very nice, very hoppy smelling and tasting beer. With a full bodied , smooth mouthfeel. It tastes nothing like a lager, never mind a Czech one? Judging by the other reviews this version is not much like those available in other of their outlets. It is however excellent.

On tap at Annapolis location--identified as "Czech Pilsner" rather than "Czech Lager". Let this one warm up a little. GB seems to serve things too cold. Once it does warm, the flavor really opens up. I loved it. Unusual, in that this beer almost seemed malt-focused, with the hops there only for their considerable bitterness, of both a piercing and blunt variety. I liked that feature, as it really served to highlight the star of the show, which was the malt. The malt was extraordinarily complex--the flavors were primarily that kind of fresh sweetness that I associate with some of my favorite pale lagers. There was a little corny taste in their for good measure. I found it superb.

Pilsner hops aroma with some grain malt smell in the background. Light golden color with a white head that quickly dissipated, little action with a minor hint of sediment suspension. Lots of the Pisner hops flavors up front including some English Tea and a barley grain taste with a hint of butter in the background. Light bodied, slight buttery and watery/resin mix feel, with a tad of astringency and soft carbonation. Good session beer with a lot going on. This is titled Czech Style Pilsner on the bottle, hope it’s the same one. Bought the mixed case at Costco.

Always kills me when people rate a good Czech Pilsner low. This one is solid. First of all, I got this six pack in BevMo while visiting Walnut Creek, CA. Came in BROWN bottles. Please note this, true Czech pils brewers - the green bottle detracts and destroys your beer. Pours yellow straw with a puffy head that dissipates. Aroma of grass and hardly any sulfur. An appropriate hop bite with a clean finish. If you ever want a good example of a style, you can’t go wrong with Gordon-Biersch. A solid beer with a simple malt profile and a single hop. Thanks!

Excellent pils with nice spicy hop character. Draft at the one in KC. Bright, clear gold with thick, sticky, bright white foam. Grain-mill nose and sharp, spicy, moderate hop-bitterness. Lively and dry. Very clean.

This is a great beer as far as pilsners go. Lots of spice in the aroma and flavor. Very dry and crisp. Very nice body massages my tongue. Perfect for a hot afternoon. Well done.

Frank (3971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2015
This a really solid pilsner w/ big floral hop flavor and fat maltiness w/o being too sweet or heavy. It is a clear golden color w/ a thin head of fine bubbles and lots of lace. It’s full bodied but crisp w/ vigorous carbonation. It might be a hair overboard in terms of body to be perfect for the style but given how far off some breweries get from this style it’s really hard to complain.

The Czech Pilsner is another gordon biersch classic and should possibly become the staple beer of this brewery. This had to be the best pilsners I have ever had (note that this is one of my least favorite styles of beers).

From tap. Golden in color with decent head. Aroma was all crisp bready malt. Taste follows with a refreshing clean hop bite and refreshing finish.
