This beer pours a copper color with a thin layer of head that fades slowly, leaving very little lacing as I drink this beer. The smell is multigrain bread and a slightly sugary sweetness. Very malty with a slightly grassy hop edge.
Glug glug glug
The flavor is rich and bready with a sweetness that reminds me of butterscotch. The finish has a small hop flavor in it that's very similar to a pilsner, and seeing as they're both lagers this makes sense. Overall this beer surprised me, I admit to having reservations about Gordon Biersch based on their being like Taco Mac and other chains, but this is a good and decent Marzen, and well worth the dollar a bottle price.

12oz bottle into SA Perfect Pint glass.
A: Pours a nutty amber color with two fingers of soft light tan head that slowly faded into a thick fuzzy film.
S: Bready malts and dry grains dominate over a hint of caramel, honey, and toast. Bread crust malts overall.
T: Bready malts follows the nose, but the beer is more syrupy and slightly metallic than expected. The finish is full of dry grains and toasted malts, and I get a hint of sugary caramel and molasses in the aftertaste. A bit synthetic and syrupy overall.
M: Medium body, splashy medium-low carbonation that isn't distracting, but a synthetically sweet and slick mouthfeel that leaves an unpleasant almost metallic tastes in my mouth. Slightly bitter aftertaste.
O: A pretty average beer. Not necessarily bad, but nothing I'd purposely drink again.
