3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(RBSG05) Big off-white head atop a clear dark amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, herbal. Taste is moderately sweet, honey, herbal. Grapefruit in the burp. Medium-full body, some resin, some stickiness. Ok, but not up to the standards of the brewer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a clear bronze with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus and a bit of candied sugar. Flavour of candied sugar, potent grassy hops and some bready malts to back. Borders the line between an imperial pilsner and imperial IPA. Full-bodied for the style and very flavourful. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy aroma, fruity and tart, and very honeyish smooth. Good hop mix, yeast, and malting. One of the best pilsners I have ever tried. Full-bodied. I would make this a staple.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft...RBSG2005... Hazy, amber lager with a large, frothy, off-white head. Citrusy, earthy aroma with notes of grapefruit, sweet corn and caramel. Big, malty flavor. Decently balanced with tender hop bitterness. Toffee and honey followed by grapefruit and grassiness. Still a touch sweet as the style dictates... no boundaries crossed here. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes mildly sweet, lightly bitter and fairly dry. A terrific pilsener!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
RBSG 2005. Golden amber body, with a small white head. Interesting hops that I can’t quite place in the aroma as well as malt and alcohol that belies its strength. Malt with a moderate bitterness and a dry alcoholic finish. Lingering unidentified aftertaste is quite pleasant. Medium bodied palate. Did not enjoy this as much as some others. Will try it again if the chance arrives to more deeply explore it.
