3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy old gold color with a thick off-white head. LOADS of ginger in the crisp, wheaty, floral aroma. Plenty of honey in there too. A crisp, thin body. The flavor starts with some sweet cereal grains and honey and transitions to a wheaty finish with a touch of lemon. There is a VERY strong, spicy ginger quality throughout that tends to overshadow everything. Definitely unique.

Fantastic! I love ginger - the spice is subtle and the beer is surprisingly refreshing, not sticky, not sweet. They hit a home run with this one.

Clear golden pour. Very fresh ginger aroma. Intense, ginger dominates. Some floral notes. Bitter wheaty flavor with ginger. Not as overpowering as in the aroma. Nice and balanced with a little sweetness.

(Sample Date: 4/12/2010 Source:Butters) Ginger aroma with a light graininess. Clear golden with small head. Spicy ginger flavor with some spruce or juniper berry notes. Quite peppery. Finish medium but dries quickly with a lot of peppery spiciness. Tasty.

Ginger, citrus, and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor starts with malt and grassy hop bitterness Ginger, citrus, and some alcohol in the finish. I love ginger, but if you don’t you won’t like it as much as me.
