3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-drawn cask draught at the brewery in Boulder, Co. Beer pours a hazy, medium yellow-amber color without any head. Ah...an ode to ginger. The aroma is lightly malty with light notes of toasted bread; lightly hoppy with a note of lemon; miscellaneous aromas of heavy, fresh ginger, a moderate note of black tea and traces of pineapple and honey. Delicate and nice. The flavor was moderately acidic, moderately sweet and trace-bitter with an extra-short, lightly acidic finish with comforting fresh-bread retros. Highly drinkable. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery-to-velvety and the carbonation was soft. A pretty fetching and drinkable offering.
