The Mid Atlantic Ridge is where two tectonic plates meet at almost the midpoint between America and Scotland. With this Geological symmetry in mind, we’ve created a union between American amarillo and British hops to produce a distinctive US style ale with Scottish origins, quaffable with a seismic depth of flavour.
Hops East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, Apollo, Amarillo
Malts Wheat malt, lager malt

Idiosynkrasie (4372) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear, pale orangey, golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, a touch of lime, gooseberry, some straw. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, citrusy hoppy overtones, notes of lemon, lime, hints of mandarine, a biting, minimally tart and spicy touch of gooseberry. Refreshing, easy drinkable. Clearly underrated imo.

(Harviestoun The Ridge) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5% Pale orange on the body, slightly hazy, with a small and thin white head. Okay retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has light malts, grains, light fruity notes of peaches, dirty straw. Taste of grains, malts, straw, light fruity notes again, faint citrus. Good bitterness though both on the finish and the aftertaste, with long duration. Medium thin body, average carbonation. nice dry feeling on the palate. Not very impressed by this although I see myself drinking it out in the garden.
