Poured from bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Light aroma of malty sweetness. Taste is has hints of caramel malts as well as subtle roasted/chocolate tones. Slightly sweet with some bite to it. Average carbonation that goes down smoothly.

Steverus0 (158) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUN 20, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

gas4uguy (7) - Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014 does not count
Pleasant tasting enough, nice color for an amber, but frankly I just like the dog on the label, being a current Ridgeback fan.

Decent beer with some roasted bitter notes. We love ridgeback dogs but the makers should learn to spell "tones" correctly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gkeh (188) - Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown, Slight white head, dissipates to a thin film and retains that. Aroma is sweet malts, toasty oats, a little pecan, a real nutty aroma. Taste is hay, toasted nuts, sweet malts. No hops to speak of. Just an OK beer.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottled: unk Pours a dark amber, hazy, with initially quite a bit of foam, then falls to a etched surface of the same almond colored goods. Smells of tea, malt, some oxidation. Flavor is terribly oxidized, lots of cardboard, wood, some more tea, some grass clippings and yeast. Medium bodied with moderate on low carb and a dry finish. Sometimes I get a hint of astringency. I don’t care for this one.

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Murky brown into a tulip glass with a thin beige head the quickly disappears. Aroma of yeast and sweet malt. Light body with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Finishes a little dry. Not bad but not that good either.
