COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malty, copper-hued treat from start to finish, Ridgeline begins with a distinctive, estery aroma. Followed with a complex, nutty malt flavor true to its Scottish-style heritage, Ridgeline delivers unparalleled character and dimension. A touch of hops rounds out its silky, full body, highlighting Ridgeline’s subtle but engrossing character.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Smells nice and natural. It has a carmel, bread like aroma. It pours a light brown into a tulip glass with a smaller white head. It was slightly sweet on taste and a bit heavy. A very nice smooth drinker.

Hazy amber with a medium off-white thin head. Aroma of cookie, dough, bread, caramel, and toffee. Taste of caramel, sweet malt, nuts and honey. Semi-watery, so-so amber.

mar (4821) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2008
nice amber pour with a 2 finger cream head. malts on the nose at first with a slight hoppy scent in the background. a little thicker than i was expecting and it’s kind of flavorless until the finish. it’s a nice clean finish of hops that become balanced out by the malts quite well.

The aroma was of light hops. while I pour carefully, the head was quite large and off white. The beer itself was mildly cloudy and a taste temping medium amber. The taste was a bit hopy and not very sweet for a malt, yet it finished rather smooth...
