(From draught)Nice amber color, not filtered, straight away nice subtile hoppy nose, nice soft malty flavours, easy drinking beer, even better when it get’s warmer, but the best thing is the aftertaste what a pleasure of hopbalance lingers on and on.........worth a detour on your holiday

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… RBSG ‘08… Murky golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, everlasting white head. Smells like a Belgian IPA with the usual phenols and esters that I don’t really dig, but the Amarillo hops save the day with their fresh grapefruit, pine and floral notes. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and frisky carbonation. Bittersweet, fruity and very lightly acidic. Lengthy, bitter, warming finish with a touch of residual sugar.
