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

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at The Ginger Man, NYC. June 1. First beer of my NYC trip! Pours a clear golden-orange with a spare diminishing frothy white head. Mild aroma of grain, pale malt, light ginger and a bit of fruit. Flavour, also mild, of grain, light ginger and yeast. Average bodied. Refreshing and easy to drink but it’s a little mild for me and I’d like more ginger in there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Poured a nice looking deep mostly clear chocolate brown with a smaller off white head. Aroma is dominated by ginger over brown bread and grains. Lighter to medium bodied with softer carbonation and a lingering ginger spice note. Flavor of grains, brown bread, ginger and pepper. Interesting for a winter odd for a summer beer if not served at its namesake The Gingerman.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orange color with a small head and good lace.
The aroma is a little sweaty and spicy with some mild ginger and some toffee.
The flavor is gingery & earthy with some lemon flavors, all of this sounds fine but it is these things in the oddest way which is mildly unpleasant. The beer has some nice ginger flavor, but I really would have liked more, it’s not bad but I suppose as impressed by the bar and brewery as I have been I would have hoped for something a little more brilliant.
