3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… RBSG 2010… Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. There’s a lot of caramel malt and a boatload of medium-roast grain in the bouquet. Medium to full-bodied and oily with jazzy carbonation. Toasty, caramely, Marzen flavors that give a slight nod toward the sweet side of balance. Toasted praline finish.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Light hop nose, with tangerine, and a kind of funky sunflower. Mild flavor, with some dark chocolate funk that I consider a characteristic flavor of Kuhnhenn. Light bitterness, chewy caramel. Yum.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Blind Tiger: Deep crimson amber/ cannot see through the beer. The head is tan and fades to a film. Fruity and malty aroma- very fresh with biscuity heavy amber malts. Has a mild chocolate note and a touch of raisin. The body is dense and creamy with chewy malt flavors. Very malty and fruity flavor with deep amber malts giving off some chocolate and raisin. Has a mild rounded sweetness that leads to a toasted and mildly peppery hop finish. A nice rich malty amber ale.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber pour. The nose is nice. Lots of toasted maltiness. A bit of chewy malt along with a fresh and fairly sweet chewy maltiness. It has an unusual sort of light roastiness that gives the beer a fairly unique toasty flavour. Pretty tasty.
