Bottle Conditioned. Pours a pure gold colour with a large off-white head. The aroma is all citrus with lots of hops. The taste is all citrus with a hint of malt, with a bitter aftertaste.

@ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Hazy amber-brown color, thick head that drops to a full head cover, waves of lace. Taste is full-bodied caramel malt that adds floral hops before the finish. Simple, but quite enjoyable to drink. A good example of a bottle conditioned British ESB. Recommended.

Funestissimo odoraccio, ma poi miracolosamente č una buona bitter, anche meno ossidata del solito ridgeway bottigliamento

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Candied orange peel to the nose with just a touch of clove type spice. There is something almost watermelon-like here too. Sweet and vibrant on the palate with a bulging, smooth texture and rich decadence. This beer contains far more than one would expect from looking at it.

TET (1544) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2008
Ridgeway Oxfordshire Blue is yellow beer with thin white head. Aroma is temptating: some sweet maltas and lot of fruitfull hops. Flavour is first slightly sweet but it changes very quicly to bitter and dry. There are sweet malts, fruits and hint of roastiness in the flavour. Quite easy to drink and carbonation is nicely balanced. Good beer for every sector with very nice hoppiness.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Bottle. Medium airy head, rather short duration. Lightly hazy golden colour. Aroma of hops, floral, honey, citrus fruits, berries (raspberry, strawberry). Taste medium bitter, light sweet, well balanced. Tastes great well chilled indeed. Short bitter finish. Very drinkable.
