(On tap, Atlanta) Very impressive. Hoppy, sweet, candied pils. Well-balanced with trailing honey/bitter palate. The hopping builds and kicks in on the back end. BTW - get one of their beer glasses, they’ve got a really good feel.

After rollerblading with the kids on a perfect pilsner day, I HAD to go get a sixer of these, luckily I found one on my second stop. This brew pours a clear sparkling light gold. The large frothy white head is tight, fully lasting and has stellar lacing. The clean nose is balanced. Sweet malty bread, toasted cereal, hay and flowers, perfumed hops, and a touch of resin. The flavor though not massively complex has astounding balance with a light sweet start, a middle that has a decent crisp acidity, and an average finish that is a nutty yeasty bittersweetness. I can’t make up my mind on the exceptional palate; at times it seems dry, at times it seems watery, and at times it seems creamy. I guess I’ll have to have another (4th) one and get back to ya on that. The body is light to medium, and the carbonation is soft. The finish feels very astringent and ever so slightly metallic. So this is what a great pilsner tastes like. I can quaff this brew like few others. This brew is enough to force me to change my philosophy toward - and lack of appreciation for - pilsners.

I liked this one and the bock at the brewery. The darks were good, but I guess with friends somehow you enjoy the lighter beers.

Typical pilsener with poor flavors--but fortunately weak in mouthfeel.

Good - but not the best - actually, pretty average as far as pilsners go.

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.
