From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and crisp hoppy. Bitter, light sweetness. Smooth malty and crisp hoppy. Bitter and mild citrusy to grassy bitter into the finish.

Ungstrup (32889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of caramel, and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Nice.

Slight hazy amber colour. Earthy, grassy aroma with hints of caramel. Large flavour - chewy malts (more caramel) and understated hops.

argo0 (12818) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2005
(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.

Lightly hazy golden ale with an off-white head. Light malty aroma with notes of czech hops. Nice big pils with chewy malt, sweet notes of honey, vanilla, and czech hops. Rich and smooth. Mondiale 2005.

mcberko (11936) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
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.

Sammy (10564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
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.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2005
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!

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2005
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.

Amber pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is nicely zesty and a little bit floral over a nice sweet pilsner malt base. There is a bit of vanilla and a bit of creaminess to the aroma. The flavour is bright and fresh with a lot of noble hop character. Lemon peel and a bit of herbal hoppiness. Long lingering bitter finish. Fresh and herbal with a nice lingering peppery character.
