COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled - pasteurised. Occasionally available in the cask.
Deep amber in color with a fruity aroma which brings a complex mix of malts and mainly English hops including Fuggles and Northdown. With a hint of barley wine, it is ideal to accompany food.

Appearance: Pours a clear, amberesque body with a frothy, cheerfully bubbly, ivory-colored head. Smell: Initial notes of swiftly toasted, sparsely buttered biscuits with a hint of sweet, crisp toffee following close behind. Lastly, the spicy-scented hops and a tinge of fruit reach my aged nostrils. Taste: Toasty biscuit malt tones with lightly sweet touches of toffee and brown sugar. Slight estery fruitiness. Little muttering of buttery diacetyl. Seemingly and assumed English hops with a light spiciness and harmonizing bitterness. Ripon Jewel Ale becomes a tad minerally on the sweetish, soft finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Drinkability: A very graceful, well-balanced, tasty beverage. I dug it, maybe you will, too.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Old bottle, L195. Murky brown pour. Smell is a little yeasty and sweet. Yes, old beer flavors. No detectable carbonation. Weird beer personality, with hints of barley wine. Good description on the label. Full, yes, Body? I dunnoh. No sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Seems like a mild stronger ale if thats possible. A tiny bit of gaggy in there. Finish.......too old to rate, I’ll have to try this again soon. Ratherm crude linger.
