Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Bitter, but not as much as expected for a pils. Has the everpresent GB crispness and mildness.

Pale golden color, with a body that’s pretty thin and clear. There’s a light carbonation, while the foam is a little light and doesn’t last too long. Nose has a clean maltiness, a little fruity, maybe grapey. A few swirls unleash the hops that provide a Gordon Biersch characteristic that is something of a herbal, almost medicinal aroma, as well as a slight note of peppery spice. A slight carbonation tingles the tongue at first, but then it runs through fairly smooth and light, not really offering too much along the way. I’d certainly appreciate a few more bubbles and a little more sharp crispness. Initial malty, fruity flavors greet the taste buds, with very faint signs of apple. The herbs and spice come into play towards the end, but seem a little too brief to really request much attention. The hops do impart a considerable dryness at the back, with a mild tang and a slight sourness. The dryness lingers well into the aftertaste where it meets with a mild apple and slight grassiness, but little attempt at a malty balance. I’m not sure if it’s just the lack of malt, but I certainly find myself looking for something else in the aftermath.

Good Pilsner. Nice flavor good aroma but for someone who prefers pilsner beers cause of their hoppy character this may be a bit ’underhoppy’

This is a great benchmark for other pilsners to live up to. The hardest thing is choosing between this and the GB Marzen.

Astonishly European Pilsner. Crisp and tasty.

Draft in Miami. Very respectable pils. Crisp and clean with a mouth puckering Saaz spiciness. Lovely offering.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2000
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2003 The prototypical pour, a perspicuous golden yellow, the head modest in size, bright white in color, the texture frothy, with the residual lace very thin sheets that cover the glass. The nose matter-of-course malt dominated, citrus crisp, fresh and clean. Start malt, lightly sweet, top skinny in feel, the finish is strikingly acidic, pertinent in its hop spicy bite, the aftertaste very dry and long lasting. One of the few “Pilsners”, I feel I could drink on a regular basis, “Great” no, but makes a fine everyday beer.
