Beer Wednesday – Gordon Biersch Marzen
Happy Beer Wednesday!
Just a few days ago, the Blonde and I had an hour our so of an evening to kill, so we stopped at a Gordon Biersch brew pub for drinks.
They had a number of beers, and according to my Vgan app, which pulls from Barnivore.com, all of then are vegan beers. Reading through their descriptions, I asked on the marzen over a number of other options.
The marzen was pretty good. Our was smooth, with light hops and very little bitterness. The mouthfeel was a little thin, but it lasted long enough without clinging and finished very cleanly, in part because of the light, almost champagne-like carbonation.
A really nice surprise was the finish. They was a really nice, almost melon taste on the finish that elevated the beer.
For my first visit to Gordon Biersch, I was really happy with the beer I had. Happy enough to go back again, but I’m not sure I was happy enough to go buy their beer on a special trip.
On my six-pack scale, I’m happy happy to give this marzen a 4/6.
