Encouraging pour reveals a bright, brassy-yellow, plenty of medium-sized bubbles forming an initially large white head that diminishes slowly to cover, providing light lacing. The nose shows a crisp, strong yeastiness, though a touch of plasticy dryness (not chemical in nature, just difficult to describe). But there is plenty of grainy, dry malt adding a fair amount of hay-like aroma, with dry, lightly spicy, lightly citrusy hops. Some light mineral character dulls things, somewhat, while there is a bit of heavy doughiness on the end. The beer still has a large amount of carbonation at first, which dies off rather evenly, allowing a thick, but dry maltiness to push through and build on the palate. Hops have lost most of their flavor by this point, providing only a light herbal quality, a hint of citrus and mostly a bitterness that is lingering but never poignant. Malt complexity seems to be the most lacking here, obviously this was created as more a session pils, and being in this drinkable of a condition after two years is certainly no small feet. There is a bit of a sourish/zesty character to the doughiness, though it just reinforces the hop dryness. Not watery by any means, and if anything, too carbonated and full of body. Without the hop flavor, it dosent seem to excite the senses. Texture is strongly effervescent, with plenty of dry malt backbone giving it a full feel as it goes down. No alcohol apparency, just a little bit of a bite from the czech yeast on end.
tried this awhile ago it was ok, but I didnt think it amerited any special response. doostinjcap (43) - Newport, Oregon, USA - APR 9, 2005
Good solid ale. Pilsners arnt my favorite by any means, but you have to give it to John C. Maier for his endless creations!

beautiful, hazy golden yellow with a sticky, long lasting white top. Well balanced nose consists of hoppy overtones, spicy and herbal, accenting a pale, grainy malt profile. Citrus hints as well. Smooth and watery, I’d sure like to see it clean up better, more crisp and effervescent. jgb9348 (6477) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Clear golden colour with no head at all. Aroma of northwest hops, cardboard and some malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Mild flavour, little hops and a decent aftertaste. Overall, a nice beer to be able to try, especially because it was free, but not a great beer itself. I sampled this 65 cL bottle on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Ontario. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 3, 2004
(RBSG 2004) Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is grassy and grainy. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Fruity and orangish. Nice pilsner, a little aggressive with the hops, but it kind of works. Light and refreshing.. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

RBSG 2004: Clear amber yellow with an average diminishing white head. Light flowers in the aroma, ends lightly bitter. Fizzy mouthfeel. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Golden with orange hues. Bready malts and a quite fruity in the nose. Flavor is sweet with a good dose of intersting herbal hops and floral notes. Dry crisp finish. Not bad.
