3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent beer, nothing too special, but smooth and tasty. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a thick white head. Smells malty, maybe a bit of marzipan. Taste is creamy, sort of empty upfront, with some coffee and toffee coming in, and a lingering sweetness on the tongue. Had in the bottle.

This is a very mellow brew with a slightly sweet finish. Was the least impressive of the beers I drank last night at the Gordon Biersch Brewpub in the Arena district in ’Cow’lumbus; which is ironic, because I figured I’d like this one the most going in. It has a nice color and nice head retention. It didn’t hurt that I had this out of the tap. I thought it was a little on the thin side.

tap at the vegas location. first off, this wasnt a very dunkel dunkel. a dark amber color this was more reminiscent of that sytle than a dunkel. head was thin and creamy. aroma was malty with hints of chocolate, and the flavor had just enough chocolate to make you realize it was there, but not enough to actually contribute to the flavor. a medium body and a sweet aftertaste made this one of the better brews at GB.

Re-rate: I tried this one again and was not as impressed this time around. The more quality beers I try, the more discriminating my palate becomes.

Pours brownish/ purple. Tiny head. No outstanding aroma or flavor going on. Light malt. No harsh flavors. Drinkable, but not overly enjoyable.

Pours a nice brown color...looks quite good. Lacing is very good. Aroma is sweet and malt with some light burnt/roasted notes. Flavor is sweet and roasted. Body is thin but not watery. The best of the GB beers that I tried at the brewpub.

Pours dark amber, almost cola colored. Nose is straw-like, typical lager aroma. Taste is sweet and quite cola-like. Thin bodied. Soft, but lively carbonation. Decent brew. Not remarkable. Not bad at all. Standard dark lager.

A bit on the syrupy side. But it promises a lot more than it delivers. Like a thickened version of the marzen.
