Pours cloudy but with nice heads. Emits a nice aroma. That’s where the fun ends. Actually, the initial tongue contact is quite pleasant, but the aftertaste soon turns odd with its ginger (and cinnamon?) spices. The malty taste also overstays its welcome. I guess it’s a fun beer to throw in the mix, but every once in a blue moon is probably enough.

Malt in the nose with some mild hops at the end. Light reddish golden pour with small foam. Light bodied with strong fizz. The caramel malt is up front and the finish has a slight hoppy sour bitterness. Some spice appears after some time. Sampled at Wurst Party Ever 7 November 2015.

Pours from can orange amber with huge off-white head that slowly recedes leaving lace and skim.
Froth is ginger and chalk, masking other aromas. Once it diminishes, there’s also a whiff of burnt waffle. Palate mixes bitter, caramel, herbal and leather notes.
Nice finish, crisp and dry, but this needs to play off food.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on draught at The Horseshoe in Hampstead. A dark golden colour with a white head. It has some of the maltiness of an English bitter, but with slightly unexpected hints of chocolate and caramel. Some notes of spruce, ginger and leather and a mildly bitter finish. A little bit underpowered, but quite an interesting take on an English-style beer.

Farmhouse ale? Ehh and just a hint of ginger. This was a quite disappointing thingy.
Clear golden color with a white head. A quite moderate aroma. Decent balance between sweetness and bitterness. Malty, herbal and a hint of ginger.
