Gordon Biersch Brewing Company

I can remember when Gordon Biersch originated in Palo Alto, CA as a brewpub back around 1985. They then opened up another spot on the Embarcadero, which I've frequented, and now have over a dozen locations throughout the Western US (including Hawaii). They now also bottle their brews.

This beer has a fine, hoppy smell. Malt is also present.

The beer is very clear, and has a very fine and medium amber color. The head dissipated very quickly. The malts and hops are perfectly balanced to produce a combined, nutty flavor. The ale is slightly on the bitter side so hop lovers will be quite satisfied.

The body is satisfactory.

This is a fine, medium-bodied beer to drink on a nice, warm day. Judges score an Excellent 43.
