Growler courtesy of Andy at DC local tasting - thanks! Orange. Aroma of ginger root coated with dirt. Taste is, unsurprisingly, ginger, but more on the smooth side, and not overbearing. Tasty enough.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Ginger Man. Pale golden beer with a lively spicy nose. Nice rich spiciness is apparent. There is a fairly subtle ginger character in the nose. A light spiciness that is well integrated with the yeasty spiciness. The ginger is initially quite subtle, but it picks up as the beer warms up, as does the light Belgian yeasty spiciness. There is a really nice crisp/crackery maltiness. A bit of hoppy spice/grassiness comes through on the back.
