3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, pour is murky golden Amber with a modest fine bubbled off white head in this glass. The nose is ginger dominant, with some general sweetness from the malt profile. The flavor profile started off a little mediocre, but it did grow on me. It felt a little one dimensional courtesy of the ginger, with some basil, caramel, and spicing. Interesting..... But....
