3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m very surprised and impressed that we got this one before North Carolina. Draft at ChurchKey. Clear golden color, bright white head. Aroma of subtle mixed spices. The ginger really comes through in the taste, but it’s not overwhelming. Very drinkable.

Brewvival Trip Beer 78. Cask at Brewvival. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin frothy head. Decent head retention. Big fresh ginger aroma with some other herbal notes and pale malts. The taste is ginger, caramel, toasted malts. Much like ginger snaps. Medium bodied.

12 oz. can from TURDFERGUSON- thanks, TURDFERGUSON! Not to be mixed up with other TURDFERGUSON users from this and other beer sites. Sam is the only TURDFERGUSON I know. Anyway, this one pours a clear gold with a finger of white head that leaves some lace in the glass and settles unevenly. Big ginger aroma. There really isn’t much else. Some pale malts, maybe some grass and straw. The flavor is basically the same, but has more bitterness. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, spicy - well, just gingery - mouthfeel. Hope you like ginger. If not, stay away. Good thing I like it.

Ginger in a beer is apparently a new thing - I saw a few over the weekend, so I’m making this blanket statement based on a pretty small sample size. but anyway, ginger seems to blend in with other pale ale flavors and aromas instead of stand out. I think it lends a certain clean texture, but that my just be me...

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was medicinal and ginger. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild citrus mild hops and ginger. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

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 .

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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
