Golden / amber, slight haze and a small off-white head. Aroma of the ginger (quite muted), malt and some caramel. Restrained taste of the ginger, medium bodied with some more fruit, Quite a dry finish. A bit too refined.

Drinking this at the ginger man. Gold with a small white head. Yeasty graham crackers, touches of ginger, dough. Lots ginger flavor, little heat if any from the ginger. Cheerios? Dull finish, needs a bit more zip for me.

Not bad the spices really smoothen out the bitterness of the Ginger. Spiced lightly like a pumpkin beer

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Draft at the tasting room. Pours out a well carbonated, golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of gingerbread, Christmas cookies, and some light fruity notes. Taste is ginger snaps, light cinnamon spice, sweet caramel malts, and some spices. Decent balance with nothing taking over too much at any point.
