On tap at The Muddy Pig reviewed from notes.

A- Beautiful cascade very light amber to yellow colour with a 3 finger off white head.

S- Malt present with subtle hop nose. Not big, exactly what I look for in pale ales.

T- Cask flat homeyness. Subtle citrus hop with hints of apricot.

M- Medium body and very dry finish.

O- I absolutely love casked beer. I feel as though there should be a cask option for everything on tap although I realize that's not feasible but one can always dream, right? The cascade was beautiful between the colour of the beer and the head. The dryness in the finish made me continue to want more and more. Cheers.

On tap at the brewery.

Look - very attractive honey amber color, slight head but attractive lacing

Smell - fresh floral smell, freshly cut grass, notes of grapefruit

Taste - biting start, strong bitter flavor

Feel - medium-high bodied, smooth feel, lingering bitterness

Overall - excellent version of an APA

I had this on-tap at the brewery. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Beer pours a clear amber color with a half finger of off white head. The head fades to a layer on top of the pour and leaves some mild lacing.

Smell: The smell of this one is very mild. A slight hop note with a touch of fruity sweetness. Would have liked a bit more, but it's pleasant.

Taste: Hoppy up front with come citrus peel like bitterness. The grain shows up in the background. The bready malt also has some fruity notes. The finish is bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a finish that isn't dry enough.

Overall: There is a very nice balance to this one. I would have liked a drier finish, but I'd still be happy to have another.

Slightly hazy apricot amber with thick sisal foam and copious lacing. Very attractive. Smell is virtually nil. Maybe light citrus? Grassy? Floral? Taste is citrus, orange and grapefruit watery to a degree some grain presence. Light bitterness. Not at all sweet. Light body but well crafted. This one is pretty nondescript all told but crafted some light flavor and bitterness..enough to be enjoyable. Certainly an entry level hop brew.

I was able to have the Fulton Ringer on tap at the Pracna, served in a kind of scalloped pilsner, the beer is a chill hazed apricot with a sticky beige head.

Aroma of mangos, malts and citrus.

I like the balance on this one. Juicy fruit gum paired with caramel malts. Slightly sweet and a bit coating. More tropical fruits and pine late.

Mouth is solid and slighlty coating. I would like to have regualr access to this one.
