3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA the ale pours a clear light amber with an off white head and limited lacing. The head quickly dissipated. You detect some ginger and caramel malts on the nose. The taste was more complex with ginger dominating and caramel malts for the backbone. There was some herbal hops completing the experience. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The finish was clean with ginger lingering on the tongue.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours only slightly cloudy amber with average foam. I can pick up on the ginger in the aroma, but it isn’t overwhelming. I’d expected an artificial, maybe even overbearing ginger kind of thing, but it isn’t bad at all. Hell, it smells good. It doesn’t taste as good. The ginger dominates the flavor front to back, and especially gets too forward on the finish. I won’t have it again, but it does smell good.

Draft. Pours hazed gold with a white head. Mild ginger, pale malts, low sweetness, and just a touch of bitterness. Fine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Grass, ginger, mint, aroma, fecal and catty. Clear amber, thick creamy head. Lilly, ginger, lemon zest, grass, maybe a little vegetal. Light body, easy carbonation. What you would expect from a ginger pale ale, not overly hoppy and not an absolute ginger bomb, still beery.
