I like ginger. But this beer is unbalanced, far too heavily weighted in ginger. There's some pumpkin trying to come through, but it keeps getting squashed by the ginger. C+

THOUGHTS: Holy Cow! That was a ton of ginger. Both in flavor and aroma. Maybe not the best pumpkin beer around, and maybe not even a good pumpkin beer, but it was a wonderful beer if you love ginger. It was a little too much ginger for me, but only by a little. The spicy hops blended wonderfully with the ginger.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, light, dirty, yellow that wound up looking like it had a lightly green tint. It also had a large, ever-so-slightly, off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma was fresh and clean and contained ginger, and mostly ginger — almost perfume like, but slightly soapy, too. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet and moderately bitter with an average duration. There was a little pale malt, mostly ginger, some spicy hops that blended right into the ginger, and slightly sour pumpkin when warmer. The light body was somewhat dry and hot on the tongue with sort of soft but tingly carbonation and a dry and sort of metallic finish with heat from the spices.

Tap at Green Dragon. More ginger than any beer I’ve had...including ginger beers. Spicy and yummy.

golden with a smaller white head decent lacing... nice big ginger aroma, bold... flavor is very much ginger with a little spice underneath, followed by an abrupt finish pilsener style... medium thin body easy drinking except for the harshness of the ginger finish...

clear yellow with a slight pumpkin aroma and slight hop part. much more mild malts and hops to any pumpkin in the taste. Noticeable ginger spice.

Slightly hazy with medium head. Spicy ginger in the aroma. Ginger in the taste with a nice spicy hop finish. Thick for a pilsner. I really didn’t think I’d like this "pumpkin pilsner", but I love it. Worked well for me.

Golden pour, white head. Ginger and pumpkin aroma. Tastes of spicy ginger and has a solid background of pumpkin, mild grain and straw. This is pretty simple, but uses the ginger excellently. It complements the pumpkin and doesn’t overpower. A very nice lighter seasonal.
