Gordon Biersch, in short.

I’m fortunate to live near the Gordon Biersch in Bolingbrook.  The food offered is varied and good.  Service is always good and very accommodating.  The beer is good.  Here is a quick run down of the sampler.  Golden Export is light and clear, thin head and texture, nice grain notes and texture, lightly hopped.  Hefeweizen is very smooth and very Bavarian, a bit dry and banana-clove-spicey, cloudy, and has a hint of bubble gum in the finish.  Czech lager is buttery, a tad spicey and dry and golden in color.  Marzen is smooth, dark amber-orange with a touch of sweetness.  Altbier is dry and light, and very much like the the alt they produce for Trader Joe.  Schwartzbier smells like coffee and floats a thin beige head, has brown-orange tones tastes like coffee, has a smooth texture and is light than you’d expect, but that makes it more drinkable to the amateur.  Good stuff all, and something for everyone.
