Was called Three Finger Jack Summer Lager when I tried it many years ago. Poured a pale golden color with a finger of white head that left a few spots of lace on the glass. Aroma was orange zest and coriander spice with light malts and hops. Taste was light malty sweetness with the orange zest bitterness and the coriander. Light to medium body with decent carbonation. Overall, this was a very refreshing brew to have on a hot summer day.

Murky light orange. Spicy coriander and clove flavor, with oranges and lemons, though the honey doesn’t come through much. Light lemon spiced nose, light texture with a little peppery yeast makes this resemble a witbier. This beer is one of the benefits of trying styles you’re not particularily fond of. Every so often, you find something very good... I will buy this one again.

Tap @ Portland Brewing for RBSG 04
Golden hazy with white head & lacing. The aroma is spicy with lots of coriander and orange peel with wheat & toast. The flavor is sweet & citrusy with banana. Finishes dry and balanced, decent!

Ok new saxer brew..I am not a big fan of the brewery..but will give this my best shot! Comes in a 12 oz brown long neck..nice label..guy in a canoe..with mountains in the background. This is "lager brewed with orange peel,honey and spices" Ok its a nice enough looking lager slighly darker than most with a good sized thick frothy head..that goes but great lacing remains. The aroma is also attractive..nice and spicy with the orange peel showing. Forsome reason though the taste is sort of "watered down"..very subdued and thin..though i do get a twang of orange and some sweet honey.. again pretty average in the mouth except for the bad watery feeling. This could have been a good beer but was a let down.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Pale gold with stiff white head, reminiscent of a proper pilsener, but this tries to be a wit as well with similar spicing. Most beers like this are an unfortunate train wreck(as opposed to a traiwreck of flavor!), but this one maintains enough true pilsener character(read bitterness) and not too much spicy weirdness to actually succeed. Granted I'm drinking a very fresh bottle, but, hey, good is good...
