Modeled after the British-style "bitter" this is the lightest and least bitter beer we brew. Crisp and refreshing with just a hint of hops.

decaturstevo (5390) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
On tap RBSG 07. A golden amber pour with a mostly malt aroma. A full malt flavor as well with a good bittering finish. A tad thin on the palate but a solid drinker.

Light yellow in color, moderate head. Bready, light toast body with a touch of hop flavor. I could drink a lot of these.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Draft... RBSG 07... Clear, very light golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Incredible retention. Odd smelling for a bitter, but I like it. Earthy, woodsy aroma with undercurrents of spent mash and delicately toasted barley. Restrained bitter-sweet flavors of caramel, English-American hybrid hops and boiled grain. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, mildly bitter finish.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2007
RBSG 2007 Pub Crawl – Orange, egg shell white creamy head. Nose held delicate toasty notes of earth and wood, and just a slight hint of citrus. Well balanced citric earthy bitterness that sits upon a soft woodsy undertone. Light to medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, crisp, soft bitter finish. Sessionable all the way as it is what it is...

yespr (34340) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2007
Sample from tap at the brewpub. Pours clear orange with a white head. Aroma of malt, slight toffee and slight bitter hops. Flavour is the same, malty dry beer. I don’t really sense bitterness. A slight bit watery.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
RBSG 2007 Pub Crawl: Poured a clear orange with a white head. Aroma grassy and earthy some pale malts. Flavor, very similar to the aroma, decent beer.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
RBSG 07- on tap at brewpub. No aroma, no head, watery, indigestion in the finish. Smells like summer camp taste like soap.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2007
No aroma whatsoever, very thin and watery body. Not much going on in this until you get to the finish where it is mildly bitter.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Tap at the brewpub. Nice looking amber with a decent white head. Mild grassy hops on the nose. Not as bitter as I’d like, but at 3.5% I could drink this stuff all day long.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2007
On tap at the barley Johns brewpub. Pours a thin golden orange brew with an average sized off-white, slowly disolving head. Aroma of roasted caramel barley malt and a touch of citrus fruit. Taste is dry bitter, medium bodied, carbonated, and a dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is a little sour and then a lingering bitter aftertaste.
