3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep caramel color with a small head. Aroma is mainly ginger. Sweet and malty with ginger flavors coming through strongly, slight bitterness balancing it out. An unusual brew (even by dfh standards) but not bad at all.

This is a good spice/herb brew. Drinkablebut some what light. Malty, ginger, and earthy flavors. Finishes smooth and clean.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 Poured an amber gold color with no head, although it did leave some lacing. Aroma of malty and top quality corn and rice. This tasted similar to a wheat beer, also including some sweet (I guess from the brown sugar) malt and yeast, and finishing slightly bitter. A rather plain although refreshing brew from DFH, but very interesting considering there is an ingredient from each continent.

Another fantastic brew from DFH, hazy golden color with huge off-white bubbly head, frity aromas, big malt profile, hints of fruits in the flavors as well, slight malt aftertaste

On tap at the Moan and Dove DFH festival. I had this after trying the World Wide and the IPA's so maybe my rating is a little skewed. This seemed weak and unflavorful. Slighly creamy, lightly malty, mildly vanilla. They should have saved the money on the ice from antartica and made it more flavorfull.

On tap at the Moan and Dove. Surprisingly light hazy yellow color. Interesting beer. Reminded me of ricola cough drops overall. Has a sweet grainy and corn taste, but not in that bad adjunct cheap beer way. Interesting, quite drinkable, and comparable to nothing else.

Boston Beer Summit 2003: Hoppy and sweet aroma. Murky dark yellow color. Layered flavor with overtones of hops, malt, ginger and spices. Pretty damn cool.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Contains blue cornmeal (NA), quinoa (SA), muscavado sugar (Af.), crystalized ginger (Aus), pilsner malt (Eur.), water (Ant.), and blue rice (Asia). Sparkling gold colour. Spicy, grainy, lightly flowery aroma. Wood, honey notes precede a grainy, herbal thrust and alcohol notes in the finish. An odd cat, this.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sparkling yellow appearance. Candyish, somewhat of a roasted hop aroma, but towards the end of the nose, the rice comes to the forefront. Alcohol in the body, sweet beginning. Rice flavor, finishes with light bitterness. There's tonnes of stuff happening here, but not all of it tastes good unfortuneately.

Haha...Oh Pangea. Very pale color, small head. Strange grassy, peach, faint nose. Everything about this beer is subtle. No prominant flavors, just a fine marriage of components. Very drinkable and exciting. I love Dogfish! Funky, spicy, woody, smooth and delectable. GET SOME!
