Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Tap- RBSG 05. Pours a deep copper with a slight film of a head. Aroma is thick sweet pure pilsner malt, lightly bready with a touch of dms. Some alcohol and spice from the european hops are noticed throughout but it is mostly dominated by malt. Moderate bitter finish in the end. Relatively smooth overall but a bit hot in alcohol.

muzzlehatch (4822) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample at the Mondial. Bright, cloudy orange-gold, thick white head of moderate duration...lightly fruity/malty nose, melon and dry grass...big malty flavors, light alcohol, sweet and a bit syrupy, grainy and with strange hints of licorice, herbal/grassy hops subdued to the rather thick mouthfeel which dries out considerably at the finish. Seems a bit oxidized to me, but still worth a try.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2004
Spicy hops dominate the caramel malts with some fruity notes. Clear copper coloured with strong white head that recedes to generous cover with marginal lacing. Intense spicy hop flavour with nice round, sweet maltiness and pleasing, unaggressive bitterness. Crisp in the mouth and refreshing on the tongue. Excellent carbonation. On tap at the brewpub for their 6th anniversary.

On tap at the pub during the RBSG. Clear golden color with a syrup sweet malt nose and a thin, off white head. Big candi sugar, caramel sweetness flavor with overripe oranges and some peach. Noticably big beer.

That beer was especially brewed for DDC 6th anniversary, and I choose it for my 250th rating. It pours a very nice gold body topped with an average white bubbly head that leaves a good lacing. Strong and well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, spicy and herbal hints. Taste is also great. It bears some sweet and honeyish notes. Very nice bittersweet finish. This is definitely one of the best European Strong Lagers you can have.

mile (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Draught at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal. Light amber - orange, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweet aroma, caramel and some fruitiness and herbal hoppyness, some alcohol, Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some fruitiness and caramel, some alcohol with herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and faint fruitiness, some herbal hoppyness, alcohol. Too sweet and too much alcohol - herbal hopppyness just do not work here.

Draft at Mondial 2005. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes present. Perhaps I can smell some nobles and Saaz with some boozy undertones as well. I detect a tad of sulfur as well. Moderately hazy orange-honey color with an off-white head. Quite sweet to start with honey notes turning more grainy and quite cereal like. More sweetness in the finish. Moderately cloying. Alcohol is hidden well.
