3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium amber with an ivory head that drops to a cover, no lace. Very still. Taste is malt infused with ginger. That pretty much covers everything, as that moves smoothly right to the tail of the finish. Itís an agreeable brew, but lacks complexity. Plus, the ginger thing isnít quite as satisfying as some English variations Iíve tried.

A real ginger aroma ,but the aleís sweetness takes away the ginger in the flavour. A bit disappointing.

24.3 oz bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 3/2012. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of ginger root, caramel, pear, apple, citrus zest, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, toffee, herbal, floral, grass, light clove, and herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of ginger, malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, ginger, toast, brown sugar, pear, apple, light citrus zest, brown bread, toffee, herbal, floral, grass, light clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, ginger, toast, brown sugar, pear, apple, brown bread, toffee, herbal, floral, light clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, ginger, and moderate yeast fruitiness; with a good malt/spice balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice spiced amber ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of malt, ginger, and moderate yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Truth in advertising all the way. Iím getting ginger in the aroma, and a big dollop in the flavor. It is quite good -- but if you donít like ginger, donít drink ....

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a dark amber coloured beer with a rich malty and toffee flavour, burnt toffee notes with rich warming ginger on the finish. Very good but too high an ABV for its flavour.
