2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. From the never ending eruption that was the bottle of this. Hazy blonde, thin white head. Nose is hazy and warm maltiness. Some warm, bad water infection nose. Mouth is watery malt, some dry rot, not much aftertaste, think this could have gone bad?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear light golden, tiny, diminishing white head. The peppery yeast character initially surprises positively, but clearly it is soured, herbal and sulfury, just like their 80 /-. Pretty ruined in mouth, bready and watery and in fact not unlike dish water. Poor.

I liked the look of this, the thick glass of the bottle and the label with the open beach, "beauty in a bottle" it says in the corner, it was the last bottle on the shelf which says to me "this has nearly sold out, it MUST be good" Well that’ll teach me, this is shit! It would have been a crackin’ colour if it wasn’t for the hazy proteins making it almost opaque. the head is a few islands of white bubbles floating aimlessly around the middle of the glass. the nose is unpleasant, sour even. The palate is medium which I’m guessing would be typical, however there is an astringent edge which is the final straw for me...( pours the remaining 3/4 pint down the sink!) Ok! this could’ve been a dodgy bottle, maybe thats why it was the only one left! I may try it again, I’ll see how I feel, this was bought in a wine shop in North Berwick, cant remember the exact price but it wasn’t kicking the arse off £3.
