3.85/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle in to a stein.

A: Pours a rich amber, dark copper hue with a thick off-white head that settles slowly to a thin froth on the surface. Head reteintion is decent, but slightly less than I expected.

S: caramel malt and sweet bready malt up front, with some floral, slightly fruity hop notes on the tail end.

T: Much like the smell, but more intense. Some caramel and toast to begin with, followed by notes of dired fruits and a slight touch of alcohol. Hops give the beer a clean, floral finish.

Notes: Overall this is a solid American take on the style. Moderate to full-bodied, and well balanced. It's quite easy to drink, and pretty damn tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had on tap at the restaurant.

Appearance is a nice dark copper with a 2 finger head and decent lace.

Smells like roasted malts. Little sweet smell. Not a lot on the nose.

Taste is roasted carmel malt balanced near perfectly against a mild hop profile. Great balance.

Mouth feel is medium body. Smooth. Very tasty.

Overall this is a great beer and the only brew worth ordering at Gordon Biersch in my opinion. Very tasty.

Serving type: on-tap
