3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Chuck’s, pours a hazy copper orange with a small white head. Aroma is huge on the ginger - not getting any hop characteristic. Flavour reveals dominating ginger notes - maybe a touch of hops. Very fresh ginger notes. Not really my thing, but this is executed very well.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ BP Little Italy ][ $1.50-2 ][ Stemmed Flute ][ 3.21.15 ]
>> Pours with low foam, hazy orange color. Intense candied ginger nose, stinky hop background, trash/overripe esters. Taste is spicy, dry, dusty, medium ginger, somewhat sticky, not quite robust enough ginger wise and I wish they had used a less sticky base beer. Grunion with Ginger?
