Draft sampler at Columbus brewpub. Sweet malty aroma, "light in texture"--no shit, thin malty flavor with some hop tang at the end. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2002
Very nice appearance - dark and goes down smooth. Not bitter at all......... TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Re-rate: I tried this one again and was not as impressed this time around. The more quality beers I try, the more discriminating my palate becomes. BennyTicklez (621) - USA - JAN 26, 2005
Pours brownish/ purple. Tiny head. No outstanding aroma or flavor going on. Light malt. No harsh flavors. Drinkable, but not overly enjoyable. unclebleen (620) - California, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pours a nice brown color...looks quite good. Lacing is very good. Aroma is sweet and malt with some light burnt/roasted notes. Flavor is sweet and roasted. Body is thin but not watery. The best of the GB beers that I tried at the brewpub.

A bit on the syrupy side. But it promises a lot more than it delivers. Like a thickened version of the marzen. Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2002
A quality brew, would like more character, a little more hop than a german version but still a nice session brew. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Tap at Gordon Biersch/Honolulu: Sweet malty, caramely aroma with a nice sweet, lightly toasted malty finish. I liked this. Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Tempe, AZ. Cloudy dark brown color, decent head. Some malt and chocolate in the aroma. Malty flavor, but some weak vomit-like off-flavor, maybe from the yeast, that made this beer unenjoyable. Disappointing light mouthfeel. Not good. Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2001
Even on tap at the brewery, this is at best an unremarkable dunkel. The flavors simply aren’t big and strong enough, and what flavors do come through aren’t too great. How could someone who went through the Weihenstepaner University of Brewing come out with no game?
