This is our new years brew for 2006. It is a bittersweet brew with a assertive sparkle from natural Co2. Three types of caramelized sugar provides this brew with character and a beautiful red color. Refreshing bitterness from German and British hops blends with malt sweetness and caramel flavors, making this brew a robust companion for both cake and cigars. Ølfabrikken Nytår 2006 is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers. Only available in 1½ liter champagne bottles.

Bottled. RBESG 2008. Hazy charneol colour, creamy off-white head. Fruity nose, with seemingly diminished hops, and left is a malty backbone with almond paste. Bit vineous with berries alongside, with residual sugars and really malty. The finish is peppery alcoholic, which I could do without. Bit harsh bitterness/finish in the end.

RBESG June 2008. Hazy orange with some floaters. Lasting off-white head, leaving some lace. Fruity yeast aroma, with bubblegum, and some oxidation noticeable. Dry and malty flavour with a yeast note causing a little harsh astringency in the finish.

Bottle (RBESG 08) : Hazy amber, lacy beige head; deep caramelly-malty nose, some fruitiness, some liquorice detectable; quite sweet, quite full bodied; a bit thinner in the fruity-malty, vinous finish. O.K. .........

DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 9, 2008
(6/29/08) Bottle sample at RBESG08 grand tasting in Plzen. Almost clear amber color. Aroma of some malt and quite a lot of hoppiness, slightly piney, and hints of alcohol. Sweetish flavor with caramel notes at first, continues with light hoppy bitterness with pine and hints of citrus. Medium-bodied.

Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
[thank you Ungstrup/Hildigöltur]
Pours a muddy, pale brown with a big, frothy, beige head on top. Aroma is spicy, malty, some pepper and raisins. Medium carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is yeasty, sweet, lightly vinious. Okay.

RBESG08 grand tasting
Side by side with the 2007. Poured an opaque brown colour... almost a yeast shot. Damn. Thick head. Sourish and malty aroma. Fine maltiness in the taste, quite aromatic, with complex notes of raisins (if that makes any sense). Liked it better than the 2007.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle at the RBESG08 Grand tasting. Alround rating: Sweet toffee caramel character, some roastyness. Goodish, but a full bottle would be the death!
