3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ohio Brew Week. Pours a light coppery color with a small off white head. Aroma is floral hops, grapefruit, caramel. Flavor is grapefruit, piney, citrus, floral hops. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes bitter. Not real great balance here, hoppy as all get out, but not real good overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Oakroom, left over from Ohio Brew Week. Light copper in color, with a thin creamy head. Very hopy aroma, almost IPA intensity. Medium body. Finishes a bit sour. Despite marketing this as a pale ale, it is closer to an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
7/20/2007: Ringneck 4 Cís Pale Ale is a clear, golden color. This beer is well-balanced and very cirtrusy. However, the plethora of citrus hops seem kind of cancel each other out. It is tasty, but nothing really jumps out. There is a nice accompanying bitterness. Medium body. Quite good overall.
Draught at Skipperís in Athens, Ohio during the Ohio Brew Week 2007. Rating #21 for this beer...

Bottle poured into shaker. Strong and sharp cascade aroma with a little butter. A slight tinge of bitterness in the front with a more pronounced rye breadiness in the finish. Mouthfeel is very chewy Thanks, kujo9!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Brewkettle. The aroma is of sweet citrius and pine bitter hops. The beer is a copper color. The taste was more aggressive than I anticipated featuring a nice hoppy bite with citrius and pine flavor. The finish is dry and long with a good amout of Hop bitterness. I liked this one a lot!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Why is it that none of the "new" sessionable ales that I encounter is available in my area? This one has a great pour, shiny new penny copper body with a tall, dense, good-lacing pale ecru head. Nice hoppy aroma here, tart tangeines and citrus zest with a splash of grapefruit juice. A light sweet malt emerges, too, as it does in the flavor; but the refreshing hoppy bitterness carries this ale. Well balanced and quite tasty, Iím a bit P.O.ed at my friend for teasing me with a bottle of this brew.
