COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look out for an exclusive version of our Porter beer under the name of ‘Ruddy Ram’ throughout November and December. This will be exclusively available through one of our national wholesale partners and will also make an appearance in January and February through Molson Coors as ‘Ruddy Ram.’ We’re keen to see which version gets best received, so we’d love to hear from you! Why not tweet us? Did you know that the word ‘ruddle’ refers to the red iron ore used in dyeing and marking sheep? Having this glowing red complexion is commonplace in the winter months and we hope you will warm up with a pint of Ruddy Ram or Woolly Jumper in a pub near you!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2012
On cask at Barony. Pours a dark ruby colour with a decent, light tan head. Aroma of acetone, treacle, coffee and yeast. Similar flavours with a sour lemon character. A malty, coffee finish. Mild carbonation. Not my thing.

undercurrent25 (1418) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2011
This is quite a thin beer with a malty finish, it’s one of the better porters I’ve had, but I’m just not that keen on the style

Pint at the Station Inn, Conisbrough. Served a little too cold. Dark for a porter, more stout like. But fairly decent

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Cask at Tobie Norris, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Very dark brown with a small off white head. Faint aroma with smoke and ash. Oily, rounded taste of dark burnt malt with a hint of bonfire. Mid bitter finish. Enjoyed this on a dank, foggy November day in this 17th Century pub in front of an open fire. Most agreeable.
