Pours clear amber with a long lasting head. Aroma is spring leaves, sweet caramel, some metallic notes. Taste is similar, sweet but mildly metallic. Body is rich and full, prickly carbonation, long sweet metal finish. Overall, a bit sweet. User134089 (1644) - - APR 5, 2012
Poured from a draft into my Gordon Biersch stein in San Diego. About one finger of head once I got it. Color was basically orange with lots of carbonated bubbles. White even lacing on the top. Minimal film on the sides.
Smelled some skunky notes up front. Initially reminded me of a pilsner. Then got caramel malts, sweet malts, dark fruit and the dreaded corn malts.
Tasted true to the Gordon Biersch style. Lots of flavors on the tongue. It reminded me a bit of the pale ale that I recently had here in San Diego. Caramel malts seemed to lead the way. Very malty. Also got some light citrus notes on the back end.
Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Above average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Enjoyed this beer, which is something since it’s a Gordon Biersch beer. Good beer for the season. Oscbert (1302) - Lincoln, California, USA - MAR 18, 2012

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Chesapeake, VA, opened 7/15/11. Kinda surprised I haven’t had this one yet. Pours a clear copper color with a large tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, apple, floral hops. The taste is toasted malts with a slight grassy hop finish. Medium bodied. wilnatp (693) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Tap (Honolulu). Bronze/amber pour with white head. Aroma of banana, fresh dough. Taste was a bit bready and sour as well as some malt notes. Decent. Left me wanting there to be more flavor and substance to it than there was but decent overall.

Boring! Boring! Boring! No aroma or taste to speak of. Pours amber from tap but it just lays there inert. BeerFanDan17 (1120) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - JUN 11, 2011

Had at the Kansas City Gordon Biersch, actually walked a while in the rain just to see if there was anything new on tap from my last visit to a GB years ago, this was it.. . Poured a basic tan, light light foam .. . light maple and some fake honey, and a touch of booze .. . i didn’t like this at all, and at $7, yikes.. but i got a sweet glass out of it .. .
Hey Stan. Did you see that rainbow this morning? - Yeah. It was huge.
- Eh. I hate those things..
- What’s there to hate about rainbows?
Well, you know. You’ll just be sitting there, minding your own business, and they’ll come marching in, and crawl up your leg, and start biting the inside of your ass, and you’ll be all like, "Hey. Get out of my ass you stupid rainbows." -
what the hell are you talking about?
