On draft at the GB in Memphis. Delicious. Kind of like a baby double bock (but not a bock), nice malt, rich palate. jstu9 (402) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2003
(tap) Smooth. My first instinct was I was drinking nothing. But it really grew on me, a nice malty taste, a nice cloudy dark color. I had this, the Blonde Bock and the Marzen at the same time and this was clearly the best of the 3. RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2004
This was one quality brew. The best Gordon Biersch I’ve had. Very dark red color with plenty of malt and hops to go around. Perhaps a little watered down, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. stephen (308) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Pretty good. Ranks up with the Marzen. Rediish brown with frothy head that stuck around. Slightly sweet, clean with decent bitterness for the style. Some nutty and tiny hoppy notes cam through as I exhaled after each sip. bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 On tap
Dark red-brown leather body with a thick off white head. Nice lacing. Lagers have such great color!

Lots of toasted maltiness in the aroma. Smells much more substantial than what is really in the glass.
Taste is of a dunkel but thin. Roastiness comes through in the taste a little more than the malt. Not much bitterness to note.
Very smooth on the palate.
On tap, Gordon Biersch, San Jose: Sweet and molassasy. Nice copper color, whispy head. Solid barley flavor. User57106 (246) - - DEC 3, 2007
Draft, consumed at Gordon Biersch Pasadena on 12/03/07. Slightly cloudy dark amber. Some bubbles still rising to form a thin skin of foam. Caramel maltiness in nose. Complex flavor of bread pudding. Aftertaste is agreeable, dry. carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - JAN 22, 2002
