3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Unclear brownish orange, signifigant sediment, thin off-white foam fades. Aroma is fruity berry ginger c-malt. Taste is initially bitter harsh ginger giving way to berry fruit, caramel/toffee brown malts, a bit floral, some spice. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. An odd duck indeed, and prehaps unnecessary. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Poured from a 22. Initial aroma reminds me of a 1980?s Strawberry Shortcake doll. 100% plastic with a fake fruit smell. Initial flavor is very "compost pile". I kept at it and did find the beer tolerable unless it was burning my eyeballs.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.
