CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 7/16/06: Clear yellow golden color with a nicely-lacing thin white head. Aroma has a big Saaz hoppy character with some sweet Pilsner malt and some mild floral light fruitiness. Body starts with a viscous light malty sweetness and fresh floral Saaz hoppiness. Very nice and true to style.

On tap at the brewpub, RBSG 2006. A hazy yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet flowery combined with notes of hops. The flavor is nicely sweet with good notes of flowers and hops - the hops get more pronounced towards the end.

swami (5) - Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2006 does not count
Draft 11/02/06 - Taken home in a growler. Imperial Pilsner style. Poured a light yellow/golden color with a creamy white head - unfiltered & slightly cloudy. A sweet floral aroma dominates this beer. Maybe some grapefruit & peach? Grassy. There is moderate up-front malt sweetness with the hop flavor/bitterness breaking through in the middle. Lingering hop bitterness dominates the finish. Sweetness comes back at the end. A little more attenuation would be nice. Hops pack a wallop. Not sure of the ABV.

TheBeerLover (1026) - DC Metro Area, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Enjoyed this one on draught at the brewpub, and a 2 liter swing top growler to take home. The beer is is an unfiltered pils, similar to Tupper Hop Pocket Pils, and tastes very similar to that beer. This is really an imperial version of that beer, with lots of great hop aromas and bitterness, crisp pilsner malt, and some warming alcohol. This beer pours to a very hazy, pale golden color, with a soapy white head, and a moderate to soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is very fragrant, with lots of grassy/herbal hop aromas that flood the nose. The palate is firm, with lots of good pale and biscuit malt flavor, on a slick but clean palate. This beer finishes with more good crisp, pale malt flavor up front, then ends with a very herbal/spicy hop bite that lingers, with a touch of warming alcohol. A very flavorful, suped up version of Hop Pocket Pils. Imperial Hop Pocket Pils would have been a better name for this beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught at Old Dominion for breakfast - RBSG DC 06 Golden clear color, thin head and lacing. Nose of citrusy, cat and fruity hops. The flavor is hoppy, nice fresh and grassy. Not much malt flavor, but the sweetness is balanced. Good like a san diego pale ale. The finish is fruity, good. I like the hops in this chief. Columbus?

TheBeerGod (6158) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Draft at Old Dominion before RBSG 2006. Gold bodied. Hoppy, fruity(citrus) aroma. Taste is malty, sweet, hoppy, with ample citrus fruits, and light grassy notes. Body is medium and has a mild carbonation feel with some dryness towards the end. There’s a nice lingering bitterness as well. Finishes hoppy, semi-sweet and crisp with malt notes, and fruit(pears and citrus fruits).
