3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a high, smooth, off-white, lacy head. Nose is stone fruit, toast, floral notes, and biscuity elements. Dry on the tongue, with a toasted-corn overtone; some fruity notes, and medium carbonation, make it relatively smooth and easy-drinking. Not a lot of hops to it. Some toffee notes. Finish is very clean. Decent.

At five percent good mouthfeel and good profile. Very strong chocolate malt flavor for a pale ale. Makes it pretty unique. At first bitter but balances out. Good carb but quick fading head. Malt for sure. Light malt aroma.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet caramel on the nose with deep roasted caramel coloring and a light toffee, quickly dissipating head, this pleasant sweetness is round with deep roasted notes and just a hint of chocolate. Smooth but effervescent mouthfeel would make this an especially lovely beer for a cool but not et cold fall afternoon anywhere that perpetual summer is not in bloom.

bought this because I have always loved Rhodesian Ridgebacks, solid beer though. Nice nutty malt flavor, finish is sweet, great beer would buy again

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pleasant tasting enough, nice color for an amber, but frankly I just like the dog on the label, being a current Ridgeback fan.
