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.

A visit to the Fulton Brewery is now a worthy stop on the way to a Twins game, so, we did. Good to see a new beer on tap. 16 oz. pint glass.

Pour is light orange, slightly opaque, but no sediment at all. Smell is pretty tame, bit of hops, sweetness, nothing to write home about.

The Ringer then enters the mouth & the fun begins. This is what a pale ale should taste like. Despite the relatively low 35 IBUs, the hops shine like a red dwarf. Beautiful light malt base lends a mild sweetness & gentle breadiness, with the hops coming in with a lovely citrus & bitter bite at the end - then nothing. Gone. Perhaps the cleanest beer I've ever tasted, which encourages another quick sip. Usually takes me an hour to enjoy a pint, this was gone in less than twenty minutes.

Gorgeously crafted pale ale & the best offering from Fulton to date. Simple, excellent, tasty, fresh. If you're around, stop in & try it. You won't be sorry.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles and some floating sediment. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention.

Smell: A juicy and earthy balanced aroma with hints of citrus, grass, and caramel. Citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, and pineapple. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass. Solid malt balance with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A solid APA aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely juicy and grassy pale ale taste with notes of citrus fruit, grass, and sweet malt. Citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon. Solid notes of grassy and floral hops. Good backing malt presence with notes of caramel, cracker, grains, and yeast. A pretty nice balanced taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on an American Pale Ale. Good juicy hop presence with a good malt balance.

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.
