2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @home, found this lurking at the back of the beer cupboard, quite close to sell by date but in date by 10 days. A little bland i must say, nose was nothing, slight fruit but i had to go looking for it. Taste was the same a slight ginger touch but nothing of really anything. A bit of a disappointment.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours clear pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is sweet pale malt, spice, ginger and leaf. The taste is dough, pithy citrus, spice, ginger and sweet pale malt with a very dry finish. Lightish body and fine carbonation. The ginger isn’t really as punchy as you’d expect with this name. Not much to it....
