Things move slowly on this island which suits our lager down to the ground. The rich and full flavour of this thirst quenching drink is down to its unusually long fermentation. Whether its the salt in the sea air that blows through the brewery, or the quality of the water were not sure but we think you will agree there is something special about this lager.

rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2007
Bottled. RBESG. Golden colour, big head. Good fruity with nice hoppiness and spicy yeastiness. Full-ish mouthfeel at this abv-level, with spicy yeast yet low on the flavour profile with low bitterness.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. From the never ending eruption that was the bottle of this. Hazy blonde, thin white head. Nose is hazy and warm maltiness. Some warm, bad water infection nose. Mouth is watery malt, some dry rot, not much aftertaste, think this could have gone bad?

I liked the look of this, the thick glass of the bottle and the label with the open beach, "beauty in a bottle" it says in the corner, it was the last bottle on the shelf which says to me "this has nearly sold out, it MUST be good" Well thatll teach me, this is shit! It would have been a crackin colour if it wasnt for the hazy proteins making it almost opaque. the head is a few islands of white bubbles floating aimlessly around the middle of the glass. the nose is unpleasant, sour even. The palate is medium which Im guessing would be typical, however there is an astringent edge which is the final straw for me...( pours the remaining 3/4 pint down the sink!) Ok! this couldve been a dodgy bottle, maybe thats why it was the only one left! I may try it again, Ill see how I feel, this was bought in a wine shop in North Berwick, cant remember the exact price but it wasnt kicking the arse off 3.

Apale cloudy amber colour with very little head. Believed 2 b infected as the aroma is of stale rotten wood.Quite carbonated but watery to taste with detectable sournerss and a horrible mouldy bread aftertaste. Need 2 try again 2 see an improvement.
