3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml botle @ Café Talo, Helsinki. Clear, rather deep golden body with a small white head. Weak in aroma, light malt and some spices. Flavor is pretty straight forward malty with just a hint of fruit and some spicy yeast and low bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste with some alcohol as a backdrop. Totally drinkable and quite smooth but ends up simple and a bit boring.

"Bread/grain and a spicy hop note dominate the aroma and flavor of this one. Nice body to it, but a little harsh in the finish. Ridgeway’s beers don;t seem to be as cool as their labels, unfortuantely."

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle poured into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: Mild; not a lot comes out. Mild malt and hay/grass.
Appearance: Crystal clear, dark gold body. No head. Thin lacing.
Taste: Pale hops. Grass, pine, and light malt.
Palate: Medium bodied, with a moderate amount of prickly carbonation. Moderate length on the finish, ends on bitter hops.
Overall: A nice ale, but it tastes somewhat generic. Decent enough. I wouldn’t mind finding a bottle on Christmas morning, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

Smells like a skunky English bitter. Tastes like a standard English bitter. Maybe bidding tons without the creamy body. Not impressed
