Aroma of heavy malt, chocolate, slightly dirty, slightly pub carpet. Taste is complex and smoky, marmalade. Lingering hoppy bitterness on the finish. Lovely finish actually. Very nice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wife bought from Stonemanor. Amber-brown, average head, malt-forward aroma, but you can tell this will be a light-flavored ale while pouring it. Overall pretty balanced but not much going on. Session pub Brit beer, but without the smoothness.

Aroma is sweet with malts. Pours amber with a small white head. Taste is sweet with malts, fruit and some grapes. Palate is thin and very drinkable. Overall an okay beer which is both tasteful and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Deep copper colour, quite high carbonation, good white head. Sweet malty beer, caramel and warm brown bread, fruity, but then also some nice hoppy flavours, marmelade of oranges, just enough bitterness. Drinks very nicely. A malty beer, well done. I find these darker stronger beers by far the best of Ringwood’s efforts.
