COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian style amber with ginger added. It is a malty and fruity beer with hints of ginger in the nose and in the flavor. Low in bitterness, dominated by the malt and flavors of the yeast. Brewed exclusively for the Ginger Man restaurant group in NYC and Connecticut.

On tap at The Ginger Man, their house ale. Dark yellow with white head and lace. Dry beverage, some ginger in front. Above average mouthfeel. As good as the style normally is, though I do not usually go in for ginger

On draft at the Ginger Man, Norwalk. I couldn’t resist this, since I enjoy CL and was actually in the Ginger Man itself (but I don’t like ginger in my beers normally). The pour was orange in color with an average looking head, slightly peachy and off-white. Lacing was ok all the way down, nothing spectacular. The aroma was malty, fruity with the obvious ginger mixed in. The flavor exceeded my expectations, probably the best approach to ginger brewing I’ve come across, done nicely, definitely well done if you like ginger. I enjoyed this, the fruity Belgian-like base malts, some yeast, and then the spicey clovey and gingery finish. I would order it again, but probably not more than one in a sitting. Nice job, CL.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2009
Draft at GM. Pours a red amber body with an off white lacing. Lots of ginger and almost cinnamon character. A light malt character with some earthy character. Pretty straight forward. CL 22 of 22, NICE!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2009
Draft at Ginger Man NYC. Poured a clear medium orange color with a thin off white head. Pleasant aroma of clove and subdued baking spices. Medium bodied with carbonation on the lower end of the spectrum. The flavors followed the aromas; clove, baking spices, and toffee. Very nice and easy to drink.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2009
Draught sample at the Greenwich, CT location. They insisted there was nothing Belgian about this, but they were wrong. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of ginger, dry malt, some peppery splashes. Tastes sweet and malty with some floral notes and a nice ginger bite on the finish.

Tap @ GMan. Ginger is very faint with hints of spice. Reminds me of autumn. Nice caramel sweetness and hop balance.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Draft at The Ginger Man in NYC. Amber ornage with a thin off white head. Sweet malt aroma with lemony hops and some spices. Ginger is definitely noticeable in the flavor. Lighter notes of lemon and other spices. Not bad.

tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2009
The aroma is a gorgeous smell of crushed ginger. Not much else, the ginger dominates. The appearance is an amber color, white head. The flavor is very reminiscent of a wheat ale. It has an extreme spicyness, ginger, clove, malts, hops. The finish is a bittering from spices and hops. Medium mouthfeel. Good, not fully enjoyable.

Tap @ Gingerman NYC. Slightly hazed copper color with an off-white head. Big ginger and spice aroma. Malty toasty flavor with a mild ginger component. Light bodied with a dry finish.
