2/2/14. Draft at Fullsteam. Pours golden and very clear. Light head and lacing. Nice ginger nose. Clean crisp pale with a hint of ginger and hops on the finish. Tasted an earlier version. Very glad they dialed back the ginger. Nice round ginger taste and nose without being overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great ginger aroma and flavor. Has a clean, sweet finish. Not even a huge fan of ginger but this is delicious.

Light orange pour with medium head. Aroma of ginger, malts and sweet breads. Flavor is of more bread with hint of ginger in the finish. Decently refreshing beer and better than expected.

On draft at the brewery, this one pours a bright, golden yellow color, and a generous pour leaves only a little space for a minimal ring of head. The aroma is faint but clean, with a pale, grassy hop character and only a little bit of the ginger wafting through. The flavor is likewise restrained, with some woodsy, peppery hops dominating the sweet malts without being overly assertive. The ginger again only accents these flavors, compounding with the peppery hop character to give a bit of extra spice. The beer has a nice, light carbonation and is a bit dry in the finish. Overall, this beer is pleasant and drinkable, and although I can appreciate the restraint in the use of ginger to keep the beer from becoming a spicy novelty, the restrained use also keeps it a bit mundane.

Soft straw gold pour with two fingers of white head. Soft ginger in the nose with an earthy/musty and bready malt profile. Lightly spicy in the flavor with some muted ginger notes. Herbal on the finish with a full and coating mouthfeel .

TURDFERGUSON (3928) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Draft at beer study. Finally trying this and I gotta say its pretty good. Finally a product that Fullsteam should be proud to stand behind, assuming they can keep consistent with their quality control, etc. ginger is present but well controlled..drinks kinda like a light ginger kolsch

I generally can’t really get down with beers featuring ginger, but I was pleased at how relatively subtle it was. Some earthy notes and some pepper, well balanced hop and malt action. Grass. Pours light clear orange. Fine, but nothing special.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2013
On tap at the brewery, Durham. Slightly hazy deep gold pour, moderate head. Nose is certainly quite ripe and herbal, with a bit of wood and grassy hops in there. Kind of reminds me of that Westbrook wit in some ways. Prominent ginger but kind of one-dimensionally grassy.
