3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Depot Street: Light straw orange yellow pour with a slight white head and a bit of lacing. Nice carbonation. BAM! is right! - BIG ginger in the upfront aroma, with a slight sweet malt balance and earthy hops - Ginger still the prevalent aroma. Flavor is not as gingered as the nose - but still present, with a light malt sweetness and earthy hops bitter. Extremely refreshing on a hot summer day. Shared some pints with the farginbastige on his way through to Pennsylvania. Good day all around on 07/09/2011.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddish brown, or something like that. Smooth dense head. Aroma of, well, ginger, as one might expect. Slightly bitter - resiny, but also a hint of that European bitterness like in Duvel. Notes of ginger, as expected. Finishes with a flinty dryness. Some touch of cardboard, too. Sampled at 2005 Music City Brewer’s Fest.
