Gordon Biersch Chum
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper/amber with a beige head. Aroma is lightly spicy, maybe a bit fruity. Med body. Flavor is pretty spicy with some roasty malt. Enough bitter to make it better than many ambers. Not getting any chocolate notes (good thing, that). Guess the 42 IBU is making this palatable.

Gordon Biersch Belgian Single
Served on tap in a snifter Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden color with a two finger head of puffy white foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good some of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a biscuit smell mixed with a decent showing of yeastiness and some grass. Along with these aromas comes some sweeter fruit smells of pear, peach and apple rounding out the aroma rather nicely. Taste- The taste begins with a crisp crackery taste that has a nice level of yeastiness and a little bit of the lighter fruit sweetness upfront. As the taste advances the cracker converts to a slightly more doughy taste all while some grassy and herbal tastes come to the tongue. Toward the end the doughy seems to dry out a bit more, but other flavors of clove and coriander come to the tongue, leaving one with a moderately crisp and decently danker hoped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – the body of the brew was crisp and light with a carbonation level that was rather average. For the style the feel was fantastic and made for one refreshing and flavorful brew overall. Overall – I quite liked this brew. It has a great flavor and is very refreshing all while maintaining a light and sessionable abv. Quite nice!!

Gordon Biersch Belgian Tripel
On tap at Buckhead, Atlanta facility. Flavor is sweet and simple with a slight alcohol burn and the right amount of spice and yeast. A prototypical, if unexceptional, Tripel.

Gordon Biersch Chum
12-oz bottle. Thanks, A! And thanks to mother-in-law for muling this back. Pretty cool treat, even if the Sharks didn’t so much tonight. Pours a clear medium amber with bright highlights. Virtually no head after a minute or so. Sour tangy nose, a bit vegetal, biscuity and grassy. Flabby medium body with minimal carb. Vegetal notes, grass, biscuit, a little sour tang that doesn’t belong. Kind of in rough shape here, much as I love the label.

Gordon Biersch Lord of the Ryes
.4l draft at the Gordon Biersch in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is a slight haze golden orange with a well formed one inch white head. The head is lasting with splotchy lace. The aroma is soft spice rye, floral hop and fresh grain. The taste is a nice blend of understated rye spice and the floral hops and earth mineral of the malt towards the back. The palate is light to medium bodied with soft carbonation and the mineral resin finish. Nice one.

Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock
Bottle at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is bready, malt syrup, some honey, floral and slightly metallic. Taste is sweet then medicinal / vegetal bitter like some ancient elixir, but not the kind that gives you immortality and thus worthy of the Ill-fated Eternal Drain Pour.

Gordon Biersch Ordinary Porter
Sample on tap @ the brew house restaurant in Baltimore, MD. Pours a clear medium brown with a white head of foam. Very thin. No aroma. Just a hint of chocolate and some roasted malts. Flavors are not very bold. Too thin and watery for a Porter. Disappointing.Even the waitress said it should probably be considered a dark ale rather than a Porter?

Draught at SJ airport. Nose is mostly clove but rather restrained. Slight fruity esters. Orange-ish gold and hazy with moderate white head. Fruity and slightly cardboard flavor - clean line issue at the airport? Not really any Hefe aspects here.

Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock
Draft at San Jose airport. Husky grainy aroma. Faint floral. Clear dark gold with head that quickly dissipated to a collar and dusting, but there is nice patterning down the sides. Tate is moderately astringent with moderate high bittering. Slight alcohol warmth is nice. Really a bit rough and lacking rich maltiness that this style demands.
