3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BCA (from Tesco, BB Apr 07). As Joeh noted an annoying label. As they suggested I served it lightly chilled but not in two stemmed glasses, I only have one mouth after all. There is an initial citrus hop burst. Crisp, drinkable and refreshing. I prefered this once it warmed slightly giving slight resiny earthy edge to the substantial hop finish with sweet malty flavours to back this up. Quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Tesco. Before I even open it there are several things I don’t like just from it’s packaging. For a brewery that doesn’t exist could they possibly mention their non-existent brewery more than they have done? ‘Oxfordshire’ features three times, as does Ridgeway Brewing/Brewery. They also have the address of the ‘brewery’, which I assume is their office, and the address of their website that also doesn’t exist. Apparently this is also the first bottle-conditioned beer that’s designed to be drunk cold, is that supposed to be a good thing and is it really true? Anyway, moving on the beer with lowered expectations, it pours a straw/golden colour with a thin white head that soon dissipates into nothing. The aroma is dominated by a spicy, almost herbal hop, some sharpness and a touch of sweetness. The first sip is a thick, sweet full-bodied bitter with high carbonation and a massive bitterness to finish. The aroma hops are well pronounced also, peppery and spicy, and there are background notes here of brown sugar or honey. Rather earthy and the alcohol content is evident; this reminds me of some of the old Brakspear bottled ales. It’s really rather good, nice one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
