MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2009
Draught, 4.2% at the Frog and Princess. Good ginger aroma. Clear yellow colour. The flavour has a mild ginger note. It is detectable, but not very powerful. Apart from the ginger, it is a lot like a standard low-flavour lager.

Clear yellow color, small white head. Aroma of artifical lime and ginger. Light bodied. Sweet lime and ginger also in the flavor. Reminds me about thouse lime radlers. No go.

Cask at the F&B in Paris. Amber gold color with a creamy beige head. Smells like ginger. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is mild caramel with a largish dose of ginger. Bet this would be great with sushi! I love ginger.
