The Ringer is an American Pale Ale with a crisp hop character and bright citrus aroma. The Ringer, however, is lighter than it would appear, clocking in at only 5% ABV. (Put another way, The Ringer cannot appear weightless). For today, we’ve cask conditioned the Ringer on Nelson Sauvin Hops.

Keg @ Fulton. Medium amber pour with a modest white head. Moderately neutral nose. Some bread, cracked black pepper. A touch of citrus and cantaloupe. Caramel. Flavor is somewhat sweet. Dry lightly woody bitter finish. Supple and smooth. Created to be inoffensive and easy to drink. Prickly carb. Fine.

12 oz bottle into an Irish pub-style imperial pint glass. Hazy amber color, lightly carbonated. 1/2 inch off-white head, receding leaving thick lacing behind. Malty, bready aroma plus some grassy hops. The initial taste has a nice malt backbone; the bitterness of the hops comes quickly, but not too strongly. The hops do not assert themselves strongly in the taste, but there is some flowery or faintly citrusy flavor with not a lot of bitterness. The finish has more bitterness, but even so, you don’t get dominate malt breadiness or sweetness, either. The finish has a little malty sweetness with a bit more hops bitterness. Sorry if I’m sounding repetitious; the flavor in this beer is kind of subdued. This is a pleasant enough beer, and easily drinkable, but don’t expect to be overwhelmed by any particular aspect of it. This is a great beer for a gateway to craft.

Tap at the brewery. Pint glass. Attractive golden orange color with minimal head but healthy lacing. Aroma has plenty of floral and pine characteristics. Taste has the hop bite without overwhelming the beer. Refreshing with elements of tropical fruit. Aftertaste leans on the hops. Pretty thin mouthfeel overall. Surprisingly decent...better than expected. Little bit of grain too.

Bottled sample from Whole Foods in Minneapolis. Was expecting more malt and less hops but this was the opposite. Great tasting just a bit surprising.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Light fruity aroma. Pours amber, has significant carbonation. Taste is sweet hop and malt combo that remind me of a session IPA.

vikingguy (956) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Cloudy honey color. Fruity fresh hop aroma. Taste- crisp crackery malt balanced by some mildly fruity and floral hops bitterness. Touch of pine resin. Enjoyable everyday drinking APA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
