A Beast of a Beer…..Old Thumper #decembeer

Day 6 of #decembeer

Tonight we welcome the first beer from the Ringwood Brewery….a beast of a beer….Old Thumper….

After only 6 days I am beginning to think that some of these breweries are taking the mick out of us. This beer is described as:

“Peppery, spicy aroma with hints of apples”

Peppery, spicy aroma with a hint of apples?! You're having a tin bath! It just smells and tastes like beer. In fact, I'm not amazingly enamoured with this brew, it leaves a bit of a strange aftertaste that is described by the brewery as “a big bold grassy finish”. And I'm not going to mention the “delicate fruit notes” that I should be able to taste.

I'm hoping tomorrow's beer is a bit better….
