COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, weíve cask conditioned the Ringer on Nelson Sauvin Hops.

Lots of hops and citrus, a bit of pleasant sweetness but overall too bitter for me. A bit of a funky aftertaste.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Golden color with a wispy near white head. Light aromas of citrus and hint of biscuits. Light sweetness leads to a touch of acidity. Overall rather calm. Actually rather boring. With hints of floor clearer, likely a flavor brought out by lack of others.

drpimento (2892) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Aroma is the best part here with a perfume, slight hop approach. Flavor is mostly bitter, slight hop flavor, fairly dry. Body is a touch thin. Has a lingering unpleasant bitter finish..

Yuck, what a waste of my evening beer. Not sure if I am going to finish this. Kind of taste apricot underneath all the ashtray. Maybe I just got a bad batch?

asedzie (785) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber with off-white head. Nose has citrus peel - pleasant but simple. Flavor is very light caramel malt, just a bit of sweet spiciness, finishes has strong orange and lime peel bitter hops cleaning the palate. Fruit forward hoppiness, but good - I would have again --summery.

jackl (6743) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2015
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.

MNAle (111) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2015
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 donít get dominate malt breadiness or sweetness, either. The finish has a little malty sweetness with a bit more hops bitterness. Sorry if Iím sounding repetitious; the flavor in this beer is kind of subdued. This is a pleasant enough beer, and easily drinkable, but donít expect to be overwhelmed by any particular aspect of it. This is a great beer for a gateway to craft.

commonmac (985) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2015
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.

Vanilla citrus and creamy taste. Citrus. Tropical fruity. Average. Draft at Fulton brewery
