This was one quality brew. The best Gordon Biersch I’ve had. Very dark red color with plenty of malt and hops to go around. Perhaps a little watered down, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Pretty good. Ranks up with the Marzen. Rediish brown with frothy head that stuck around. Slightly sweet, clean with decent bitterness for the style. Some nutty and tiny hoppy notes cam through as I exhaled after each sip.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 On tap
Dark red-brown leather body with a thick off white head. Nice lacing. Lagers have such great color!
Lots of toasted maltiness in the aroma. Smells much more substantial than what is really in the glass.
Taste is of a dunkel but thin. Roastiness comes through in the taste a little more than the malt. Not much bitterness to note.
Very smooth on the palate.

Draft, consumed at Gordon Biersch Pasadena on 12/03/07. Slightly cloudy dark amber. Some bubbles still rising to form a thin skin of foam. Caramel maltiness in nose. Complex flavor of bread pudding. Aftertaste is agreeable, dry.

Bottle from Safeway in Los Altos, CA. Aroma is malted cola, roasted malts. Taste is a creamy cola which has been watered down by melted ice. Not incredibly complex but definitely one of the better GB beers I’ve had.

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.
