Pours a straw golden yellow with a little bit of a red hue. The smell had a bit of the alcohol in it but also had some dark fruits and apple scents to it as well. The taste was semi-sweet with almost no alcohol burn till the finish and even then it paired well enough with the other flavors.

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.
