Presents in a 12oz. brown bottle with the bottled date marked on the back. The beer pours a weak one finger white head that disappears quickly, leaving no trace. A very clean straw yellow color. Not an impressive appearance.
As I take my first smell, it flashes me back to my days of downing Milwaukee's Best Light after losing at beer-pong. I cant describe the smell very well other than it smelling like a cheap American Lager. The taste is more of the same. Nothing special. Starts like carbonated water and ends with a slight hop bitterness to remind you that you are drinking a beer. The mouthfeel is that of carbonated water. As for drinkability; I could drink it but, why would I want to?

First had: on tap at Gordon Biersch, Broomfield, CO
Poured a golden-yellow with a small fizzy white head that fizzled out rather quickly. Grainy aroma, with a light citrusy hop profile. Simple taste, nothing too interesting happening. Lightly toasted grains and light citrus and piney hops, leaving a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Balanced, but just too light for me. Drinkable if you're playing it conservative.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Miami brewpub. Medium yellow coloured body with some white head, and lacey. Not a good aroma, cheesy beer smell.A decent bitterness tht has a fresh crispness, though dry. Some apple juice. Better when it was just below room temperature.Below average mouthfeel.

A straw colored beer, a white small head, no lacing, no curtains.
Sweet smell of apples an lemon.
Sweet white bread, lemonade, some apple peel.
Medium high carbonation, soft small bubbles, a light dry finish.
A bit too sweet, reminds of euro pale lager.

I've determined that GB makes the most beautiful, most average to funky tasting beer ever. This from a brewer who was educated at the great Weihenstephaner beer University.
Appearance: golden, always beautiful, f...ing gold
Smell: hmmm, there's that smell again, what is it? motor oil? mixed with malt and hops of course
Taste: this beer is a subtler version of the blonde bock which I found undrinkable. GB has a funk all it's own, too bad it's a nasty funk
Mouthfeel: moot, at this point
I really wanted to like this beer, I didn't want to believe the plethora of negative comments about GB. I will not purchase another GB product. I've renamed this beer "Golden Shower"

(Served in a wide-mouthed pint glass)
A- This beer has pale straw yellow hued body with a gentle carbonation of bubbles gliding to the surface. On top is a thin white head of foam that is perfectly calm for a good bit then breaks up into a thin ring.
S- The clean smell of light sulfur gives way to raw grain notes and a finish of soft noble hops.
T- The sulfury noble hop bite is the first taste but notes of tap water and field corn come through soon after. There is a green noble hop finish with a raw grain flavor coming out as the beer warms a bit.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp fizzy texture at the finish.
D- This veer has a big crisp sulfury flavor with other flavors falling behind or are covered up. I don't hate this beer there is just little flavor character to review.

Aroma of noble hops w some malt. Golden straw color, very clear. Mild hop bitterness, with mellow malt. Overall, good session beer, but a bit thin for my pallet. Restaurant setting w a nice outdoor seating area. Food caters to the masses, as does the beer.

Poured a darker golden color with a 2 finger white head that dissipated rather quickly. Light carbonation seen rising.
Aroma was light hops, light malts. Not much happening.
Taste was light hops, some citrus, sweet malts. Again, not a lot going on. Tasted slightly off.
Mouthfeel was very light and lightly cleansing.
Overall, somewhat refreshing. Not one I would search out. Just too light and lacking any character.

Served in a .5L glass:
The beer appeared a clear yellow, with a decent white head that had some retention that receded too fast and almost completely.
The beer gave off a slight aroma, mainly a light malty/grainy aroma. Nothing much else to speak of.
The taste, upon my first sip, followed the nose, it was lighter than expected, but it has a sweet grain/bready flavor to it. I would have likened the beer to an English Pale Ale, having never tried a Dortmunder.
The beer felt light and maybe a bit over carbonated, but overall felt right. The beer's best quality was the drinkability. I could have easily could have downed a couple without thinking about it. Overall, a decent beer, but certainly not one that I would seek out or make a special trip to try.
