3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice amber colored body with a thin off-white head. Light aroma of wheat and just a touch of ginger. Medium mouthfeel with some soda-like carbonation. Decent flavor. Malt and wheat with a hint of ginger...definitely not overpowering. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy orange amber body leaving a small half finger white head lasting for less than ten seconds. Small streams of carbonation were seen rising. There was barely any lacing.
The smell had the ginger up front with some light malts coming out as the beer warmed, not much else going on.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, she sat about a medium and was sharp as hell, probably due to the ginger, so its expected (it tells me the ginger is real and not fake). For 5.2, I’d say this is fairly drinkable, but the sharpness of the ginger helps to bring it down a bit.
Overall, I’m a big fan of ginger and actually really liked this and if I lived in their distro would definitely want more of.

No head light ginger aroma. Week watery flavor with slight ginger. Almost like a tea. Refreshing. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild wheat aroma, pours a slightly hazy light amber with a full white head. Some wheat malt flavor, with a touch of ginger and bitterness in the finish. Not really much going on with this beer, it seems like it missed the mark somewhere.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-tan. Fading soda-like head. Coconut-fruity aroma isn’t unpleasant, but isn’t a great beer aroma either. Ginger forward, but a decent enough of a malt base to ground it. Well done for a Ginger beer certainly, just not a beer you really want to revisit.

Bottle purchased at Crafted Drafts. Hazy orange to amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt and ginger along with some weird esters. Malty flavor with plenty of ginger before a sweet finish.

Really light blonde ale with mild ginger. Very drinkable and mild but the ginger flavor is barely present. If you want to make a ginger beer you should make the ginger somewhat prevalent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Gibson, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours a cloudy light orange with a small white head. Aroma is wheat and diluted ginger. Taste is wheat at the front, then a sort of weird spicy feeling reminiscent of ginger toward the back. This ain’t great by any means, but is drinkable and somewhat unique.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a slightly hazy medium amber-copper with a head that erupts briefly and then fades away. The beer is brewed with ginger and that is the first aroma that my nose picks up. It is followed by pale malts and a crisp clean hop note. The body is about medium with a slight astringency. The taste is also ginger forward but mildly sweet. A clean finish. Something I need to be in the mood for.

On tap in the brewery’s tasting room. Pours a hazed gold. Big spicy ginger, lots of ginger. Big spicy ginger, lots of balance though. Spicy ginger, wheat. Lovely. Surprisingly lovely.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Drop Off, N.Y., June 1. Pours a deep copper-gold with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma is grainy, a bit fruity and with some light ginger -- too light for me. Disappointing flavour of caramel malt, grain, some fruit and again, very light ginger. Average bodied. Dull and the ginger is much too mild to bother with.
