Bottle dated 10-30-2006. Darn! Another gusher! I’ve got to prepare for these when opening a vintage bottle. Most of it recovered, pouring into a small snifter. Foam is so thick in the neck it’s hard to get a smooth pour. Pours a golden beer with Lots of floaties, thick foam head. Still, it arrives with few of the character of an aged beer. Just a lightly sweet malt taste. Ginger comes in more as ginger ale. Now there is some phenol from aging, but that’s to be expected. A pretty nice specialty beer, just not a world-beater. Glad to have had it, though.

"i was surprised by actually liking the rice aspect of this beer more than the ginger, which was pretty subdued. at the end of the day, this was one of the DFH beers that comes off as gimmicky, and while it wasn’t bad in any sense of the word, why pay $15-20 for a slightly above average beer, which is what this ended up being."

Poured from 750 a nice amber somewhat cloudy hue, with a small white head with almost no evident lacing. Aroma is full of ginger with spice, reminiscent of ginsing and earth. Flavour was that of dirt, is all I could think of. Uhg, can’t do it, total pass for me.

750ml bottle from Half Time (Poughkeepsie NY). Poured a clear dark amber color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, caramel malt, ginger, and spice. Taste of sweet candied ginger, syrupy malt, sweet fruit, and Belgian spices.

Draught @ the saucer. Complex caramel color. Frothy off-white head. Complex aroma with pumpkin, spice, basement, and rye coming to mind. Flavor is dominated by pumpkin spice cake, nutmeg and cream. If I didnt know any better I would say this was a pumpkinator but the color is wrong. If starts fizzy, transitions smooth and has a light, bitter finish.

From BA review on 2-25-12 - Served in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance –Served a yellow-orange color with a little bit of haze. Upon serving there was a nice billowy white head that faded slowly. Upon fading the head leaves a moderate level of lacing. Smell – Initially the aroma begins with some nice citrus hop; mainly orange and grapefruit in nature. These aromas then begin to mix with aromas of ginger, bready malt, and some brown sugar/molasses aromas as well. At the very end there is a very light floral hop aroma which mixes with the other rounding out the aroma nicely. It’s quite unique, and rather inviting. Taste – The taste is interesting as well. A maltiness is most pertinent up front. The taste then sweetens a bit with some caramel and brown sugar flavors mixing in. These are also mixed in with some spiciness – mainly ginger and cinnamon. Some bitterness works its way in from the hoppiness of the citrus. All these flavors, as they did in the aroma, make a unique drinking beer with a rather oddly refreshing taste. Mouthfeel - While the taste and aroma were rather unique, the mouthfeel was rather normal. It was slightly above normal thickness and its carbonation was very standard. Overall – This was an interesting beer. It had some very unique aspects to it making it a very nice one to sit back and test out.

2011 bottle at tasting..medium dark amber color..nose is mostly saffron and quite similar in almost every respect to Midas Touch..mouthfeel is a bit thin and weak and not much interest here...chalk this up to another unique dfh offering that has an interesting storyline but not much else

2009 vintage, 750 ml bottle into a DFH glass. Pours a clear amber with a finger of white foam with large suds. Nose is a whole lot of spicy and sweet ginger. Some caramel malt but this smells like liquid candied ginger. Taste is light with tons of sweet ginger. The spice is very minimal. Aftertaste is a bit cardboardy and bready. Drinkability is very high but this is pretty boring. Medium mouth feel. I remember liking it fresh and with four years on the odometer it’s certainly aged well enough. Like drinking a mild ginger ale.
