3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can purchased at the brewery in Garrattsville, NY. Pours to a beautiful, bright, amber color, with a tight, white head that fades, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is pleasing with some good zesty and herbal hop aromas. Palate is soft, with good pale and stewed malt flavors, paired with light fruity esters. This beer finishes with more good pale and stewed malt flavor up front, then ends with a gentle, mild hop bite that lingers. Enjoyable, very drinkable pale ale, with enough aroma and flavor to please the beer geek in me, but a beer that you could pound with impunity. I love a good drinking beer like this.

Appearance- murky amber, a golden base, one-finger beige head which lasts. Aroma- lots of bready malt, cereal, hints of dark fruit, hoppy hints. Taste- creamy malt, toasty, cereal and grains, wheat, soft fruity hops. Not much sign of the ginger.

Nothing particularly bad about this beer but it’s quite boring. The only hint of ginger I get dries out the beer the flavor has little hops. Just eh.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml can. Clear, amber colour with average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Weak caramel malty aroma, a mild touch of red berries. Taste is minimally sweet malty, slightly bitter hoppy, cautious hints of re berries, a minimally soapy touch of ginger. Quite expressionless, thirst quenching; ordinary mineral water would do as well.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
