2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of citrus, flowers, hops, and ginger. Intense bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish fruity notes and spicy touches of ginger. Bitter aftertaste. The ginger notes are quite disturbing, actually, making the beer more interesting than good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium big off-white head over golden beer, aromas of citrus, fruit and ..ginger. Medium full on the palate, good lively carbonation. The taste scheme fronts the ginger drive, but maybe not too much, the fruit is well integrated but the hops bitterness works less well in tandem with the ginger. Also, the gionger has a hot sweetness to its base that I’m unsure about. Maybe so alien to me that I need to have another to make up my mind, maybe try some time with savoury east asian food.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.5l bottle. This is a clear dark golden one with a medium sized almost fluffy off-white head that’s leaving nice lacing down the sides of the glass. It smells of ginger and white sugar infused. A bit of fart and lots of butter also found in the aroma. Not my kind of aroma to be honest. Not that it don’t enjoy ginger beers or ginger in beers, but this is a bit bah... It has a really light watery mouthfeel and a soft to average carbonation level. If I didn’t know that this was a 5 percent abv beer i would have guess estimated it to be a alcofree pale added ginger, pumpkin, elderflower juices, galangal, herbal tea and pepper. It’s actually not bad tasting, just utterly strange and I’m finding it hard to really enjoy the flavors combined. It kills the thirst, but I guess that’s about it. 11.10.2013

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A dense, two-finger head, off-white in color, forms over an unclear, golden body. It’s fruity and citrusy on the nose, with some ginger. Pale malts and some licorice hints. Bready hints. The flavor is bready and malty, with some anise notes and a faint ginger-ish hints. Almost butterscotchy. Medium to full body, semi-dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. Definitely not my kind of beer this one. 131228
