Old Thumper

HISTORY

Ringwood’s most iconic beer was first brewed in late 1979 without a name. A competition in the local press inspired Joe Leedham from Broadstone, Dorset to come up with a suitable suggestion!

NOSE

Peppery, spicy aroma with a hint of apples.

PALATE

Luscious balance of grain and hop in the mouth. Bitter sweet finish with delicate fruit notes.

COMMENTS

Warm, rounded yet surprisingly delicate pale strong beer.
