Pours bright golden, nice head.

fresh hop aroma

taste adds earthiness, decent if restrained bitterness, med body, med carb. lasting pithy bitterness and some dryness. some juicy fruits on the end?? A nice beer as harviestoun tend to do. Earth shattering? no. But still rather good

Clear, golden yellow pours a white head that quickly dissipates.

With Fuggles and hints of diacetyl, this definitely not American in origin/style.

Light to moderate body with a very modest carbonation.

Amber orange color with a thin head with short retention.
Light aroma with notes of caramel, piney hops and orange citrusy.
Mouth is better. Hoppy flavor with notes of piney, earthy and floral hops, grapefruit, oranges and tea leaves. Dry aftertaste with a long but balanced bitterness.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Refreshing, balanced and herbal hopped APA, also citric, but definitely not tropical. Somewhat plain, but still pleasant enough. It has some British accent. Still not at par with their motherland.

The Ridge poured a cloudy brownish yellow with no head and no lace. The scent and taste was more herbal in nature leaning toward a grape fruit. The mouthfeel is medium in body with little carbonation. Overall its ok.

From a 50 cl bottle in Edinburgh. Samples from 2 bottles - one seemed better than the other.

Bright gold-amber with a decent head.

Too earthy (flavor), as hinted at by the aroma. Flavor is a bit stronger than average for style. Hops build into the finish and linger on in the moderately bitter aftertaste.

Medium body and near medium carbonation.

subtle I guess after nice easy going citrus flavours refined & balanced it says & does
but certainly drinkable & very much enjoyable.
Not a big flavour though

Pours crystal golden beer with 1-finger white head. I wouldn't call the foam essential, ring of smooth froth, no more.
Fresh aroma of piny hops and pale malt. Taste is similar, drinkable malt body with ponderous bitter accord in the finish.
Good in summer. Medium body, reasonable carbonation.
