3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting one with a bit of that special something in. Some sweetish moments combined with spices and even that promoted ginger. Enjoyed that special bit of pepper in the back. Good one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle possibly packaged in Oct. 2013 (G.13.10 code on label)poured into shaker. Deep reddish-orange hue with a short-lived fizzy off-white head and lots of ginger pulp in suspension. Aromas of sweet malt, cereal and ginger. Sweet, bock-like flavor with a slightly spicy ginger finish. Warming quality, but this could either be from the ginger or the alcohol. This was good, but frankly I could’ve used some more ginger.

Strong ginger aroma. Half dark amber golden color. Sweet ginger soda-ish taste.
Clearly not for people who dislike the taste of Ginger.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes like drinking gingernut cookies and very sweet on the palate, so much so that the sweetness from the ginger is a overbearing and dominant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy amber-golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of perfume and flowers. Taste of sweet pickled ginger, ginger soda, flowers, rice and leaves. Finishes off like perfume with floral hints. Interesting brew.

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. It’s an agreeable brew, but lacks complexity. Plus, the ginger thing isn’t quite as satisfying as some English variations I’ve tried.

A real ginger aroma ,but the ale’s sweetness takes away the ginger in the flavour. A bit disappointing.
