3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 1) Bottle round Mum and Dad’s after Xmas dinner, 01/01/12. Dusted brass, low white head. Decently juicy orange and polished pine needle aroma. Crystallised lemon, light flowery hop, trace of nuttiness/hazelnut sprinkled Connetto. Unwintery but decent for Ridgeway.
2) Bottle in Spainsburys beer-off. Oh fuck had it before. Slightly clouded bronze with a scummy froth dissipating to nothing. Aroma of sulphur, matchbox, orange and apple peel. Initially some decent, discreetly US hop with blackcurrant and orange jelly notes; slight earthiness and husk, peanut. Scored it about right last time.

Bottle as Bad Elf Winter Ale from S H Jones & Co, Bicester as part of Ridgeway Christmas gift pack of 4 ’Elf’ beers. Pours a golden yellow with high white head. Dry grassy hop aroma with a hint of barnyard and white metal. Light, dry and bitter on the palate, little carbonation. Dry grassy slightly floral taste. Very high very bitter lemon hit then a very metallic but strangely delicious aftertaste. An interesting Golden Winter Ale.
