Ringwood Brewery Old Thumper  Extra Special Ale:

Apparently this is brewed by Ringwood Brewing in the UK, and Shipyard Brewery on our side of the pond, which at first confused me. A slight citrus rind, and a bit of thin but caramely malt. A bit buttery (apparently yeast diacetyl, upon further research). Mainly though, I notice that distinct british bar-of-soap-bitter hop flavor that I sometimes find off-putting. I’ve really got to find a good single hop series and figure out which one(s) it is. All in all, a decent beer, but not so much up my alley.
