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.

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.

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.
