2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma has malt and grassy hops. The appearance is golden with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s not that impressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
pretty good for a style i don’t particularly care for. A nice golden hue with a fast fading white head. A somewhat watery carbonated look to it. Aroma was sweet with a subtle brown sugar note and some hops. Flavor was a little sweeter then the aroma indicated hops were mild present in the background. A nice crisp finish that was light on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden, small foamy head. Smells like brown sugar toast, perhaps a light floral hop. Dry toasty malt flavors, with a light tingly resiny hop on the sides and back of the tongue. Crisp lightly bitter finish, and refreshing enough.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colour. Light caramel, toasty hop and diacetyl. Crisp, but watery golden ale with that definitive Ringwood diacetyl signature. Kind of boring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark yellow on pour with a pretty foamy head. It has a slight hop aroma with some floral notes. It tastes slightly hoppy but is a bit light and watery. Refreshing on a very hot day. I’d call in a decent lawn beer.

Draught @ Freeport tavern. Coppery gold, little head. Mild ringwood and diacetyle nose. Underdeveloped graininess. Diacetyl flavors too, gets worse by the sip. Some hop floating around but in general disappointing.

65cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa). Pours a clear golden color with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly to provide little lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon peel, flowers, straw, and hay. Flavor is bread, yeast, flowers with a hoppy, bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a hazy straw yellow, with lots of lacing and a thin watery head. Malty aromas, biscuit, some Ringwood yeast. Flavor is what you’d expect here: biscuit and malt, some oats maybe, and a nice floral ending. Very easy to drink and well-balanced. Not going to rate high but it’s a good simple beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pale amber beer with an off-white head. Soft pale malt aroma with some light earthiness. A little bit doughy and lightly tobaccoish. Soft soft citric bitterness on the back. A nice simple golden ale.
