3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another year, another batch. Very cloudy pour, off yellow with thin lacing head. Nose is a soft combination of citric and floral hops with a pleasant level of diacetyl. Reminiscent of steam beer, this is a slightly bitter session that is great for warmer weather. In line with the cloudy body there was a more-than-expected amount of sediment in the bottom of the glass.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Destihl. Slight chill haze to an otherwise pretty clear golden beer. Nice white head. Light grassiness on the nose. Also some aromas of lemon peel, bread, and cracker. There’s a nice light bitterness to the flavor as well as a restrained sweetness. Cracker, white bread, and a touch of grain bitterness. Light grassy hops. Very light citrus.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has grass and grain with a bit of lemon underlying. Flavor is similar with a bit of earthy grain, grass and lemon combining.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler… RBSG 2010… Clear golden ale with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. The aroma suggests pale malt, lemongrass and clove. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Well-balanced flavor - a mild clove phenol and a banana ester are offered here. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Tap] Pours a clear yellow color with a small amount of white head. Aroma of lemongrass and sweet grains. Taste is of light malts, lemon and light herbal notes. Slightly below average palate. Crisp hop finish. Not a whole lot to this beer, but nothing offensive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewpub (Bloomington, IL). Pours a hazy straw yellow, lighter and well hazed with a frothy moderate brighter white head that laces well, dies to a decent layer. Aromas are tart lemons and grass, a light floral and grass hopping with decent bready and pale malts, a touch of grainy cereal malts moving into a faint sweetness. The beer itself is quite refreshing, lemon and citrus mix with bready malts and cereal grains, a touch of sweetness, lingering grassy earthiness. A light bitterness, but a decent flavorful sessioner for the summer. Clean yet flavorful, a light bitterness and well balanced. A very nice summer beer by the guys at Destihl.
