Amber pour with a light head. Ginger heavy. Light caramel, no real berry notes. Sweet, spicy ginger finish.

22 oz. bottle shared by someone at Dutch’s - thanks! Pours a semi-cloudy rose-tinted gold with a small off-white head. Brown ale? Not based on appearance. Or aroma, which has notes of ginger, berries, and pale and sweet malts. Or flavor, which has really bitter ginger and florals, citrus peel, berries, and pale malts. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter, spicy, dry mouthfeel. Lose the word "brown" and this makes a whole lot more sense. Odd beer all around.

Getbetter (882) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - OCT 3, 2014
From a bottle at golden gate parj during Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival between Cibo Matto and ya lo tango.The pour is a bright hazy orange. This has a body of a brown ale with a caramel, citrus, ginger and a aftertaste of berries. I need one to save.

AmEricanbrew (5905) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 17, 2014

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
This beer pours a clear dark mahogany color with a medium foamy light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, spices and bready malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of berries, grainy malt and sweet spices. The finish is fruity up front with a gingerbread and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Gerbeer (1947) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper with light head. Aromas of ginger and juniper. Strong, toxic flavors of ginger, grass, cloves and other dry spices. What the heck is this? Whatever, it doesn’t work and it’s just awful.

Gription79 (2296) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The aroma is dominated by woody ginger, berries, there is a light toasted malt note in the finish. The flavor is berries, spicy/woody ginger, sweet maltiness. This is a but harsh. Tannic/astringent.

Gamin (107) - - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a very murky dark brown color with little to no head. Smells of berry and must. Interesting if a little off putting. Berry and pine up front in the flavor that morphs into a clean spiciness. Must is in the flavor as well. At first I was confused and put off but as I enjoy my glass it's starting to grow on me. A nice sipping beer.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle:   Big fragrant bubble bath like aroma.   Very artificial and floral.   Literally reminds me of some spicy bubblebath stuff.   Seems soapy, really soapy.   Nice head and lacing at least.   Yeah, fake floral bits, doesn’t seem fruity.   Otherwise very artificial.   Light to moderate sweetness.   Moderate body andmouthfeel.   Soapy finish.   This literally smells like those floral/fragrant bubble bath soap.   Meh...
