Gordon Biersch Märzen

12 oz single, Taco Mac, Marietta (Dallas Highwway), Marietta, GA, USA.
Pleased to see this being distributed in bottles now after enjoy the same beer in various GB locations for many years.
What I’ve also said about the GB Marzen when drunk on the premises, is that is has a great, sweet, HIGH yeast feel to it which adds hugely to it’s drinkability. This bottled version seems to lack a number of those attrivbutes, and for me REALLY strongly highlights the difference between bottled beer and a (perhaps) fresher kegged version.
The usual bright, clear, sharp look seems to be missing from this version, although the color is similar. The lively yeast also seems a little missing, and the carbonation is less satisfying. Drinks OK, but I can’t help wishing that I was drinking a kegged version at the brewpub. It just doesn’t quite work as well for me.
