(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pilsener golden with a dense, white head. Clean, malty nose. Medium body with a clean malt base and some lightly floral hops leaving a solid bitterness. Very German in style. 280307 chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2006
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.

Draught at Dulles International Airport, Washington. Golden color, small offwhite head. Rather weak hoppy aroma. Hoppy, fruity flavor, quite nice bitter grassy finish. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2003
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?). Tmoney99 (14970) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Bottle from local Kroger. Pours clear copper color with small frothy white head that was slow in diminishing with light lacing. Light hop aroma. Light to medium body with thin texture. Light balanced sweet flavor with short finish. Clean tasting alternative to macro brews. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2002
Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Bitter, but not as much as expected for a pils. Has the everpresent GB crispness and mildness. Dogbrick (13764) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2001
This is a great benchmark for other pilsners to live up to. The hardest thing is choosing between this and the GB Marzen. deyholla (12260) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet grains and corn with an underlying grassiness. Flavor has more of a hay and sweet grain note with hints of grass and corn underlying.
