Bottle at RBESG08 ... Slight sweet treacle malt ... over fizzy ... wee bit thin ... but tasty roast malts and a little toffee.

RBESG08 grand tasting.
I really liked the Taybeh Golden (the version brewed in Palestine) and I hoped that I would like this as well. Poured a nice murky brown red body with a nice light brown head. Notes of cocoa, coconut and caramel malt in the nose. Chocolate pudding taste with some sweet maltiness. Trace hops. A surprisingly nice, light and pleasant beer.

Grand Tasting, RBESG08.
Hazy brown colour with tan head. roma from dark malts with notes of plum. Good chewy, lively mouthfeel with dark fruits, chocolate and caramel. Low on hops as it should be, but bit short in the finish. A nice surprise!

Bottle shared by Eugene/Gotmos. Nice roasty lager aroma, thin but clean. A bit of a nice malt in there, well balanced. Not a bad brew at all.

Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
Pours deep brown with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, light chocolate and rather earthy. Okay mouthfeel. Fine flavour, good chocolate, lightly roasted - not dissimilar in style to the Bøgedal beers. Nice.
