1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, and cheese (??). Very forward lemon flavor, also some coriander and citrus notes. The beer seems undercarbonated and flat, and pretty weak in flavor, and it has a weird cheese aroma.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL cork and cage bottle. Batch 3.. The cork was poorly placed in this bottle but fortunately no undesired effects. Pours with a medium large head that has a good retention and a nicely sticky lacing. Color is a cloudy very pale golden and it glows despite the cloudiness. Looks pretty. Aroma is medium strength citrus and lemon. Effervescent on the nose. Just a faint hint bubblegum ester. Flavor is not strong, a very dry flavor with citrus tang and just a faint hint of bubblegum ester, which works very will with the beer. Its exceptionally executed. No elements that dominate and beautifully melded with a drying brew. A very light easy drinking mouthfeel. with a long dry aftertaste I do not get any ginger but I know I am not sensitive to it. I am not sure why this is rating so poorly but it may be batch variations. Great to drink, this beer has turned around my view of Augusta Brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From my trading partner - Strykzone. My corked and caged bottle was labeled Batch 3. The pour was hazy gold, and left a soapy foam head and sticky lacing. The nose is wheat and spices with cloves and the advertised ginger showing in the aroma. The body is medium and the mouthfeel on the lively side with lots of carbonation The flavor adds in some ripe citrus flavors to the wheat and spices and it finished crisp and refreshing. I think they have improved this some since batch 1, as I found it pretty darn good.
