Deep mahogany amber body with a rim-clenching white bubbly head. Bright sweet, candied nose with notes of crsip fresh hops and choice hops. Fruity, lemony, cotton candy finish with a great hop-to-malt balance. Sweet! pjweaver (136) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Tap bottled, 2 weeks travel. Poured a dark amber color with a big fluffy head. Caramel sweet aroma mixing with floral grassy hops. Toasty and bitter on the tongue, very refreshing with a great bitter hop bite. Foamy rolling mouth feel. Great beer, even after it’s extensive travel.

RBSG 2004 on tap at the brewpub: Huge pine aroma, clear copper color, starts and ends very bitter. Full bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Long aftertaste. Low69caprice (100) - Yucca valley, California, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Clear Amber to red pour off white head. Nice malt aroma. Good to an example of a martzen. Flavor slightly sweet. Finishes with no off taste. Majority biscuit malts. Good brew. KyotoLefty (10194) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
Draught at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall
Deep, ruddy amber color with lace. Fruity, gumball, caramel nose. Fragant. Sweet, cherry flavor, with toffee, fruity, and good hops. Flavorful and balanced; the best alt I’ve tried outside of Dusseldorf to date!

Piney aroma with malt notes, a sweetish malt flavor with some fruit, and moderate-to-high bitterness. Drinks smooth after several IPAs, and I mean that as a complement. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Ruby amber color with light head & lacing. The aroma is rich & malty with lots of resiny hops for the style. The flavor has a good mix of dark malts, medicinal hops & sweet body. Finishes good & balanced. Clean, fresh, yum! beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Medium gold color. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. A medium bodied alt. Malts are nutty and fruity. Hops are grapefruity and piney. A touch sweet, but a nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. omhper (24966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear amber. Sweet, fruity and salty. Fairly malty with soft mouthfeel, yet dominated by spicy hops. More of a hop monster than an altbier, but the combination is interesting. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Pours amber with a medium head that left some excellent lacing. It has a very good citrus aroma. The flavor has some caramel malts and moderately strong hops that balance well. It closes with a big hops finish. Good stuff.
