yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2008
RBESG2008: 50 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a slowly collapsing white head. Light brett and hoppy aroma. Flavour is dry hoppy and light brettish. Smooth and a nice mix. Vague caramel malt base but the hops and the brett compensates for that. Ends dry and hoppy.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle at Coventry Beer Festival.
Very clean for a bottle conditioned beer. Golden brown with a good white head and plenty of condition. Lovely grassy hop aroma backed up by some bready malt. A little on the delicate side but good all the same. Flavour is excellent. Nice and dry and very drinkable. Good hops, good malt and a nice dusty finish. Jolly good.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 Bottled. Big, quenching and fruitily hopped. Pithy grapefruit and Jelly Tot tang. Apricot murk slicked with white scum. That yeasty apple peel note that seems to characterise all of their beers, but here it’s entirely appropriate. Zestily dry with softening creamy malt. Almost a hint of Orval. The best Tunnel I’ve sampled to date.

harrisoni (13206) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask gravity at Nottingham BF 2007. Orange/gold with disappearing head. American piney grapefruit hop aroma. Some syrupy malt. Tangerine/clementine fruit. Good condition. Gets better as it goes down. US hops are reasonably understated. Piney throughout.

thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
Pours muddy pale golden with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has good fruity hops, grapefruit and grass. Nice mouthfeel, very dry. Flavour is very hoppy with some crisp maltiness. A good dose of grass, grapefruit, apples and flowers. Nice.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Nice. Lovely rust colour, slightly cloudy. You can feel the American in it. Very drinkable.

brontebeach (153) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Pours mid tan, white but thinning head. Good bitterness but the cascade hops don't shine through, remains rather overly malty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
