RBSG 2007 Pub Crawl: Poured copper with a white head. Aroma, floral and earthy, with some caramel malts. Flavor, earthy caramel, some light fruity notes, toffee. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2007
RBSG 07 tap at brewpub. Pours a nice medium amber with a fluffy lasting off white head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malts, and good english floral hops but doenst get into the tannic tea-like quality- stays flowery and lightly sweet. Herbal and floral hop sin the flavor- hints of toffeeand nuts, caramel malts and a good clean bitterness. Solid ESB as expected. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Tap at Barley Johns. Pour is amber orange with kahki off white head that is sticky. Aroma is citrus and malt with grass as well. Taste is smooth and subtle bitterness with a smooth malty bitter finish. Palate is thin to medium mouthfeel and finishes chaulky. Another solid drinker! madvike (3260) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap at GTMW - Pours hazy brown with a thin brown head. Nose is malty and bready, Taste is same, with not hopes and wave after wave of light bread malt. One-note, but tasty and easy-drinking.
Stine (1780) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Deep amber color, staying head. A fragrant blast of northwest hops is first from the glass. Some quieter notes of honey biscuits and malt dispersions. Very green tasting. Heavy on pine resins and some citrus reduction. Crisp and clean, slightly English in disposition (but in an IPA kind of way). Lacking the tepid fruity and grainy depths of better examples, but compensating with its refreshing qualities. Palate weighs a bit thin though not watery. Not for the most particular, but approachable and well made. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/23/07: Pours an effervescent bright copper with a nicely-lacing web of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malt with some faint English hops. Body starts with a nice light caramel malty sweetness and good lightly piny flavoring and bitter hops toward a crisp, balanced finish. A good ESB. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2011
on tap at the brewery pours light amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is toasted malts, very bready. Flavor is fairly light nuts and toasted gain with a nice noble hop bite in the finish. Very clean and drinkable. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. This had the usual caramel notes as well as a light caramel taste. tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a nice amber with a decent sized white head. A tad more bitterness on the nose and palate that the Little Barley Bitter. Decent amount of citrusy hops make up for a slightly watery finish. Again... quite drinkable and it’s got a fair amount of flavor.
