Ringmore Shaldon Shag 1.8
Cask at the Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a hazy copper with a halo of white head. Malty aroma with notes of stewed apples and sweets. Flavours of floral hop, candy sugar and stale malt. Flat malts continue on the palate with wet grass and a little citrus.

Ringmore Shaldon Shag 2.9
Wakefield Beer Festival as ’Two Beach Shaldon Shag’, but same percentage. Glowing copper with a small head. Has a hope base and a mild fruit character.

Ringmore Shaldon Shag 3.3
Nose is gently citric with fresh grapefruit hop aromas. Pours a deep copper with a medium-strong beige head. Flavour is a balance of fat and buttery and fresh and fruity with finishing notes of elderflower, grapefruit and ever-so-slight aniseed. Slightly thin mouthfeel, but a pleasingly long and bitter finish. Not a bad drop.

Ringmore Ferry Strong Ale 3.6
From the bottle, just on cool. In a dark hotel room it seemed to shimmer in the light but held a haze. A deep russet copper with little evident carbonation, and crowned by a generous, off white pad that left a fine lace. Damp moss comes to mind on the first whiff, with lots of peat, toffee, caramelised rhubarb, wet earth, nutmeg and damp, charred wood coming through, interesting!
Very earthy in the mouth with sweet dark toffee and cola, damp herbs and musty old rye bread loaves to dither from the aroma. Body is medium to light, the carbonation just a light spritz. Drops off herbal, considerably short with a lowly bitterness. Dry past the front, a mild nuttiness builds, quite raw with delicate hop notes lingering briefly. Lovely drinking this one, more an old ale I thought as its full of weird character. Nice! (50cL, BBE 12/11, Darts Farm, Topsham, Exeter, Devon)

Ringmore Oarsome Ale 3.9
Bottle. Bronze and clear.Lovely hoppy tones and a gentle lingering hoppiness. Slightly bitter and very well balanced. Much better than i expected from the amateurish label that may deter people from trying a very nice beer.

Ringmore Ferry Strong Ale 3.3
500ml bottle (ChrisO’s pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" shindig)
Spicy aroma. Cakey. Was looking forward to it, but when it hit the mouth that deflated a bit. It’s actually quite dull. It is a rich bitter, but it’s a touch sweet. Would have preferred more attenuation, more nuttiness, to be more like the ESBs I like.
