3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this as a part of a Blue Tractor sampler, which is by far the best sampler in Ann Arbor...This pours a light straw gold with a decent white head. The aroma and taste are both really nice. This is an easy to drink non skunky pilsner. This is the best American Pilsner I’ve had, certainly drink this.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, bready malt. Flavor is mostly sweet malt with a dry finish. Pretty good fresh pilsener but on the sweet side.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold. Musky hops. A bit of corn in the aroma. There’s a chance this is getting a touch old. Not bad though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery as part of a six-beer sampler. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma of pale malts and slight noble hop aromas. Flavor again is pale malt, lightly bitter, with minor spicy, grassy, and citrus hoppiness. It’s okay, just not terribly special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at brewpub
After waiting over twenty minutes I was ready to leave without trying a single tap. I wish I had as the beers ranged from average at best to subpar and a mess. This one was an example of the most basic approach to crafting a beer - make it simple by playing it safe and dull.
Aroma / Appearance - Flat and grainy there is not much to the nose of this beer. Sweet corn and honey are bland. The appearance is not much better. A fizzy golden liquid sits on the table like a shot of apple juice.
Flavor / Palate - Watered down grains and then feeble hops hit the senses with a tentative nature. The crisp lemon finish is an improvement. However it cannot salvage a beer that is forgettable even before the second sip is finished.

Draft… RBSG 2010… Clear yellow lager with a fizzy, quickly dissipating, white head. The aroma offers pale grains, mash, lightly spicy hops and a hint of green apple. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is grainy and sweet. Butterscotch. Low bitterness. Sweet, watery finish.
