COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark and potent ale with a rich palate and a dry finish. Its roasted and slightly fruity character is balanced by the spicy flavor of fresh ginger root.

I made the mistake of thinking this was named after someone, rather than having ginger in it. I don’t like ginger. At all. So I rate this with that in mind. Very strong, and the alcohol is right up front. The nose is, as you’d imagine, gingerish. Has a nice look to it, a bit brighter than most browns. Like I said,not my kind of deal, but okay nonetheless.

WOW, this is one strong and wacky beer. The ginger doesn’t overpower the beer, in fact it complements it nicely. I had this one at the brewfest in Portland, I’d like to see this on bottled, so I can get it here in the boon docks

Dark brown. Big spicy aroma of roasted ginger, some wood, some soapy sweet bread as well. Very sharp flavor of ginger, rye, crackers... crisp finish.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 3, 2004
RBSG 2004 on tap at the brewpub: Clear orange/red color with a small white head. Very light hops and rich sweet ginger in the aroma. Ginger taste, and finish. An interesting beer, but I’m not sure that I’d ever want more than one.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Tap @ Gasthaus for RBSG 04’
Auburn mahogany with off-white head & some lacing. The aroma is full of caramel & ginger, light floral hops too, comes across spicy and herbal. The flavor is full of alcohol feel and a moderate body & sweetness. The finish is spicy & herbal too with lots more ginger. The ginger really takes the front spot here and balances everything out nicely.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2004
(RBSG04) Clear red-brown body topped by tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, ginger. Taste is medium sweet, ginger, caramel. Light-medium body, effervescent. Soda-ish, i.e., the alcohol is incredibly well hidden.

TimE (3184) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 12, 2004
A huge 10% ABV Brown Ale that is complimented by a huge ginger nose and sugar cane. The body is dominated, but not overly so, by fresh ginger, molasses, sugar cane followed by a well rounded spicy ginger finish. An excellent winter warmer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Dark appealing color. Strong and sweet ginger aroma. Huge ginger taste. Alcohol and ginger float out the nose. Who knew Widmer could be so creative, and good? Strongest beer at OBF I think.

Medium brown color. Medium head. Aroma is spicy and slightly sweet. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are spicy. The ginger adds a nice spicy counterpoint to the hop spiciness. An interesting brown ale. Nice going Widmer. Another odd and wonderful beer brought to the Oregon Brewers Fest (2003). Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and spicy.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2003
A brown body with a white head. A sweet ginger aroma and for some reason I smell a hint of mint. The flavor is full of ginger and malts that hangs on with some bitterness. The ginger is nice because it is a real ginger flavor...not fake tasting at all.
