Tasted at the Oakville branch, but brewed at Whitby
Full gold colour; biscuity malts in the nose are appetizing. Mild palate, some crisp hoppiness - lime, hay, flowers. Minty note in the finish. Has some good elements, but needs to expand upon them because it comes up light overall.

Draft at WCBF 2008. Light grassy hop aroma. Gold color with white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Flavor is pale malt dominated by grassy hop. A very good pilsner (so why is it classed as premium lager?).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from beeronthewall. This one is criminally under-rated. Pours canary with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is pale grainy malt, honey, apricot, and hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty up front, giving way to a crisp and very refreshing hopcitric a,d honey-dipped apricot flavor, with the hops seeming to get crisper as it warms. YEt another beer that I would buy by the case if I could, and I’d love to side-by-side this with Prima and Pikeland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Dulles Airport outlet. The Old Dominion outlet that I had visited last time I passed through Dulles seemed to have gone (or perhaps I was just looking in the wrong place) but I don’t remember a Gordon Biersch being there before. This seemed to be aiming at a Bohemian pilsner style and didn’t miss the mark by too much, so I thought it a bit uncharitable to list it as a premium lager. Slightly hazy, mid gold colour. Not much head. Distinctly malty aroma. Could do with a bit more hop character in the flavour. Clean and refreshing, although there was a bit too much sweetness emerging on the finish for my taste. Pleasant enough, although not too interesting, but I’ve had plenty of worse beers waiting for a flight.
