4/30/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Caramel flacors with light fruit, hops and a slightly bitter finish. Haslinger (929) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
bought this because I have always loved Rhodesian Ridgebacks, solid beer though. Nice nutty malt flavor, finish is sweet, great beer would buy again TizzleJizzle (791) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured an unfiltered dark amber with a thin white top. Taste of caramel malts, toffee, bitter floral finish. Medium-high fizzy carbonation, medium body. gas4uguy (7) - Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014 does not count
Pleasant tasting enough, nice color for an amber, but frankly I just like the dog on the label, being a current Ridgeback fan.gruberm (329) - - MAR 4, 2014

Decent beer with some roasted bitter notes. We love ridgeback dogs but the makers should learn to spell "tones" correctly.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, Slight white head, dissipates to a thin film and retains that. Aroma is sweet malts, toasty oats, a little pecan, a real nutty aroma. Taste is hay, toasted nuts, sweet malts. No hops to speak of. Just an OK beer. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a dark amber, hazy, with initially quite a bit of foam, then falls to a etched surface of the same almond colored goods. Smells of tea, malt, some oxidation. Flavor is terribly oxidized, lots of cardboard, wood, some more tea, some grass clippings and yeast. Medium bodied with moderate on low carb and a dry finish. Sometimes I get a hint of astringency. I don’t care for this one. Pershing (560) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Murky brown into a tulip glass with a thin beige head the quickly disappears. Aroma of yeast and sweet malt. Light body with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Finishes a little dry. Not bad but not that good either. jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013

Aroma: Barely there and easily the week point of the brew

Taste: Nutty with large notes of caramel and a slightly bitter finish
Palate: Somewhat thick moderate carbonation.
Overall: A solid ale no real high points no real flaws. It is good.
