2-finegr rapidly disipitating head. Mild aroma. Clear, dark auburn color. Med mouthfeell. Tastes of light toasted malts, balanced light bitterness. Well carbonated. Too tame for my tastes.

Dark wheat flavors, a bit of caramel roastiness, toasted maltiness, hazelnuts and just a bit of toffee. Very tame, and too light in body.

This is a dark brown beer with a soft white head. It has a definite organic smell--kinda grassy. The taste is also grassy with some nuts mixed in there. This is the best beer available at Gordon Biersch in my opinion, but there are definitely better brews out there."

Quite tasty, despite being overwhelmingly disappointed with my Biersch visit. Probably wouldn’t order any of the Biersch offerings after trying the sampler platter in Las Vegas.

On tap at the Las Vegas location. Very dark amber (almost brown) in colour with medium carbonation. Caramel-toffee sweetness on the nose, with a bit of toasted malt. More toasted malt and toffee in the mouth as well, along with a bit of acidity and roasted nuts. A bit too light bodied, but overal it’s a solid impression of the style. The best of their beers that I sampled.

Tap. Maple syrup and malt aroma. Medium brown color with small head. Molasses/maple syrup and moderate malt flavor. NIce flavor but like their Weizen, a bit weak. If they could get more body, they’d really have some great beers.

On tap @ Gordon Biersch Mission Valley. Pored a very dark hazy copper color. Nose is mostly of malts....some dark fruit as well. I picked up a nice hint of cherries on the tounge. A very nice Dunkle.

On tap at the San Diego location. Poured a really nice dark red, copper color. Definite caramel, toffee aroma. Nice malty flavor, went down nice and smooth. Very enjoyable.
