3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent stuff. Draft at the Rockville, MD location. Firm rocky white head atop a clear golden body. Nose of earthy clean yeast and a moderate note of grassy saaz hops. Crisp and clean tasting, filtered, obviously, but still fresh enough and crisp enough to enjoy. Nothing too spectacular, just a run of the mill mildly sweet cereal grain flavor with a touch of buttered biscuits and saaz hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the Virgina Beach location. Yellow with a big white head. Nose is grassy and floral, with a grainy sweetness. Light to medium body. Flavor is more of the same, grainy sweet with a grassy bitterness. Solid but unspectacular.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my favorite GB beer. All the great hop characteristics of a good pilsner are in this one...sharp aroma, bitterness and flavor. Very refreshing after a long day ;-)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Tap) Pours a golden color with little head. Little aroma. Taste is of sweet malts with a dry, crisp finish. Not particularly smooth, with a somewhat abrasive mouthfeel. OK, but not one of their best beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: This poured a bright golden body with lazy bubbling and a substantial white head that semed to paste the lacing to the sides of the glass. The aroma is honeyed bread with a firm grassy bitterness. Both sweet and bitter are well balanced in the flavor, the grassy bitterness lasting into the finish along with a light touch of lemon. Sessionable, especially with a cute mixologist tending to your needs.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale yellow and has good residual lacing that hangs the whole drink long. Aroma of malts and brisk hops. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Good balance w/ a good hop profile. Finish is bittered perfectly w/ citrus rind. A good session brew.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap at Virginia Beach location. Not suprisingly, this was pretty much like practically every other pilsners I’ve had. Crisp, grassy, and watery with a somewhat unpleasant finish. However, I thought this one was a better example of the style.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Here’s my qualifications: been to this chain in Tempe AZ--lots of times. I’ve tried all their beers, many times. It’s a lucky day when an in-house brewer even has a lager, since crappy ales are all the rage the last few yrs....All GB beers have a real stiff taste. None of their beers are gulpable or something you want to buy at a store. Too expensive. With the Czech lager, you get a medium body, some hops, plenty of corn, and whatever chain-brewer chemicals you can recognize from 33 cent macros. GB is one of the most overrated beermakers, this lager starts nice and moist, tasty, then disintegrates on the tongue. Finish varies, but often unpleasant. On the bright side their food is better than their beer--

This is a great beer as far as pilsners go. Lots of spice in the aroma and flavor. Very dry and crisp. Very nice body massages my tongue. Perfect for a hot afternoon. Well done.
