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. Taste is ginger snaps, light cinnamon spice, sweet caramel malts, and some spices. Decent balance with nothing taking over too much at any point.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2012
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.

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.

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.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Tap flight at Ginger Man NYC. Light amber pour with a thin white head. Standard. Aroma of bubblegum and cloves. Taste is similar but neither the fragrance nor the flavor are overly strong. A little thin in the mouth. This would have been better with more body to prop up the delicate flavors in the glass.

Tap @ Captain Lawrence... Poured hazy amber with an eggy, off-white head. Dominant ginger root, very fresh with ginger spice. Belgian yeast flavors and cloves to balance. Went down very easy with a nice malty finish.

On tap at Ginger Man NYC. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white head that lasts. Aromas are grainy, grassy, ginger, medium phenol and yeasty. Flavors are of ginger, earthy, peppery, grainy, spicy with a light sweetness. Strong ginger flavor, but no real burn (probably a good thing). Medium to lively bubbles, lower body. A bit of candied ginger lasting in the finish.
