Ringwood - Old Thumper. Ok, so anything that on the front of the bottle describes itself as ‘Full of flavour craft ale’ makes me suspicious that it will actually be neither, in fact the message actually managed to annoy me a little, it doesn’t say anything about what the beer really is. The description does this beer a disservice, the beer itself isn’t trying too hard to be cool and now, it is a nice malty ale with plenty of character. Classic, rather than craft and there is nothing wrong with that. Ignore the twee, try hard messaging of the packaging marketers and get yourself down to sainsburys to give it a go. And Ringwood, I know you were probably trying to look a little less like a big brewery, but stop trying to hard, just make good beer.
