Appearance: Bright gold with a quickly disappearing head and a touch of carbonation.

Smell: Indistinct malts and hops. Basically, it smells like beer.

Taste: Hops and cereal malts.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a slight hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. My descriptions may not sound exciting, but this is pretty much what a pils should be. Nothing above and beyond, but nothing to fuss about either. Just a good solid beer.

A - Pours a light golden/copper color with finger thick head. Not much lacing.

S - Hop and malt scent. Pretty pungent.

T - Light hop bitterness with malt on the finish, also hints of citrus. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

M - Feels light in the mouth. Not too much carbonation, goes down easy.

O - Not a big pilsner drinker but I didn't mind this one. I don't have much to compare it to, but I wouldn't mind drinking it again. I probably wouldn't pick up a six pack of it, though. If you try it don't expect a world class beer, but its nothing bad.

Look-This beer poured a brilliant gold. It had a fat head of at least 3 fingers, the lacing was not as expected kind of light.
Smell-Grassy, sweet, pine is what I got.
Taste- The pils malts are really good. Hits up front and on the lips for a long time afterwards. But its cut through with a good hoppy taste. It reminds me of a caramel apple for some reason. It leaves a sour taste to me.
Mouthfeel- It is SUPER drinkable. Carbonation is great, hard to improve on that aspect of the beer. I could drink a bunch of these and not get tired of them.
Overall- Great session beer, not tops in terms of pushing any limits on brewing. Staying classic while breaching new frontiers is a hard act to balance but Gordon Biersch is doing exactly that!

At the restaurant in Miami. Smell is much sweeter than I expected, with cloying funky sweetness on top of light malts. Flavor follows the aroma, with overly sweet flavor, almost like artificial sweetener in it, some hay and honey, bleh. Drinkable and light, but the sweetness makes it difficult to get it all down. Would not order again, but not a terrible beer if you happen to be eating there.
