3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at the Harpoon bar in Terminal A Logan Airport, in the remote part of Term A. Good aroma, Ginger, honey, spice, citrus, but mainly Ginger. Clean yellowy, brownish orange color, Small head, no lace. Sweet bitter flavor, no as strong as aroma, but all the same characteristics, Lite bosy, smooth mouthfeel, sweet finish. Tasty I must say, while I guess the ginger is in the holiday spirit, this would be a decent summer brew in my opinion.

Bottle/22 - Poured a slightly hazy straw yellow in color with a tight bright white head that stuck around for a while. Small lacing on the glass. Aroma is of lemon, ginger, unidentifiable spices and a small amount of very floral hops. Flavor is medium of the floral hops with plenty of the ginger, honey and lemon acidity. Finish is quite clean with lingering lemony notes. Clean, balanced and well worth drinking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle shared at the DC Local tasting. Pours a totally clear, yellow gold with a cloudy white head. Strong aroma of ginger, all spice, nutmeg and one person remarked "a little household cleaner." Flavor is big, right on the tongue, raw ginger. There’s some sweetness too. Dry finish with some spicy ginger heat. If you like ginger then this is for you.

22o bottle, thanks nimbleprop. Small white head atop clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, ginger, allspice, some lemon/orange. Taste is medium sweet, ginger. Fairly dry finish. Light-medium body, alcohol hardly noticeable. Definitely does what it sets out to do -- ginger beer.

Large bottle. For some reason I’m not really into ginger beers all that much even though I do like the non-alcoholic ones. It seems like the combination of ginger and alcohol tends to give me a headache. That said, this one seems pretty good. A nice crisp wheat beer with the strong smell and taste of ginger. For those who are into this kind of thing they should be pleased. For me, I suddenly have a headache.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazed gold into a shaker. Bright white micro head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Immediate ginger aromas with some hidden wheat. Crisp ginger from front to back with some wheat fullness into a lasting ginger burn. Very nice.
