Ridgeway Seriously Bad Elf has an extremely thin, white head, a very crystal-clear, old gold appearance, some bubble streams, and virtually no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet toffee, sweet bread, whiskey, butter, and a slight nuttiness. Taste is of citrus peel, toffee, alcohol, grain husk, white bread, and a somewhat pine-oriented bitterness. Mouthfeel is mostly heavy and syrupy, and Ridgeway Seriously Bad Elf finishes mostly dry and sip-able. Overall, this is really nice, and the only detractor is the unusual citrus note, which doesn’t seem to fit. It’s good stuff, though.

Enjoyed this bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a clear golden orange hue with a thin, 2-finger, white head that very quickly dissipates in to a non-existent lace with no trail down the glass.

S: Sweet deep caramel aroma with citrus buttery aroma.

T: Very sweet malty with caramel and some dark fruit flavors. Alcohol present but masked but the malt nicely.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Interesting strong ale. Very malty – not my favorite brew buy worth a try.
