3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/07/04 - Pours a cloudy, burnt orange/amber colour with foamy, off white head thy quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is lots of ginger, mild caramel and light citrus notes. Taste is similar to nose; lots of ginger, sweet caramel malts and a hint of citrus fruit. Herbal ginger flavors nicely balance with the sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with fizzy carbonation and a mildly warming, herbal finish. Interesting brew.

Bottle, small stable creamy head, clear copper color, aroma of ginger spice caramel and some candy, flavor of caramel and ginger with a coarse grapefruit bitterness. The base beer is much too malty and heavy doesnít blend with the ginger and spice. Not a good beer.

Bottle 11,2 fl.oz from Bier-Bienne (CH). Reddish brown with a huge ochre foam. Appetizing perfumes of malt, caramel, ginger. Just like the taste, syrupy, unctuous, powerful with candied ginger, spices, toffy-honey and earthy-citrusy hop. A little soda like but betrayer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unexpectedly malty, sweet, ginger spiced aroma with a rich, almost honey-like quality.
Clear with a darker than expected reddish-brown hue and yellowish head. Particularly nice colour.
Very, rounded flavour balancing soft, yet rich malt with light spice, masking the alcohol very well. Slight banana coming through also which complements toffee flavours produced by the malt. The spice isnít very obviously ginger though, itís more just sort of general spice which doesnít give the clean effect Iím really looking for.
Smooth and soft texture with a light, fuzzy carbonation. I wouldíve expected the carbonation to be a bit higher and crisper and whilst I normally love softness in a beer, I think the flavours here mightíve benefited from a crisper, harder feel.
Overall though a great beer to experience. It isnít the refreshing type of ginger beer which I was kind of expecting and is instead much thicker and íchewierí. It has itís place and is certainly well-made but the general íspice additioní flavour doesnít tend to go down so well with me as I sense it as a bit artificial. Perhaps it is the particular preparation of ginger doing this but as a spiced beer in itís own right, itís still very enjoyable.
