Cloudy amber body with minimal white head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, some herbal. Taste is medium sweet, herbal/earthy, some peach ,light melon, caramel. Light-medium body with low carbonation. MilkmanDan was with me, and assures me it tasted much better the last time he was there -- I wish I got to try that version.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. An odd bitterness, an OK aroma. Medium yellow with a bit of head. Low a.b.v. appreciated.Nicely carbonated. OK for its style or as a beer. Sweetish malt, though not rich. There are much better elements in the product line.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/23/07: Pours a transparent bright golden with a well-lacing froth of off-white head. Lightly sweet pale malty nose has a fresh, slight earthy English hoppy presence. Body starts lightly sweet and refreshing with a decent bittering hoppy balance and faint toffee toward a thinner, crisp finish. A good session brew.
