50 cL bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Pours cloudy yellow with a diminished white head. Mild brett aroma and dry impression. Flavour is dry and mild citrusy, not much ginger. Light ginger into the far finish, slowly building into a more dense impression.

Cask at The Turf, Oxford in the company of Glen 09-11-08. I finished on this beer before cycling home in the most appalling weather. Pours golden in colour with more of a powder ginger than root ginger profile. The lemon is there and does show itself but it really takes a back seat to the ginger, that said this is a well balanced beer, very refreshing and with a nice dry tangy finish, very nice indeed.

imdownthepub (10243) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern with Fin. Gold with white head. I was prepared to slate this, but it just goes to show, it was really very good. Hoppy and lemony with good bittering, dry and refreshing. I really liked it.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear golden with a nice white head. A little Brett and citrus in the nose. Light body, fruity, again with citrus and Brett accents while the ginger is rather downplayed. Finishes dry. 031008

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2008
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of ginger, and so is the flavor, though combined with light notes of lemongrass, leading to a dry lemony finish. Thanks fonefan and Brugmansia for sharing.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle, 4.0%. OK citric aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Good citric flavour, nicely rough bitterness. Hint of yeast in the aftertaste.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2008
Cask at Peterborough beer fest. Alround rating: Pale lagerish malts, herbal hop spice, lemon is key and the ginger is a bit subtle compaired to how id like it. But still alright.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Bottled from The Real Ale Shop, Branthill, Norfolk. Slightly thick gold body with a rocky white head (bit of a heavy handed pour). Aroma of tart hops and slight washy ginger. Ginger swings through in the first sip but it’s still not hardcore; the hops are at the fore and buzz on the tongue. Think thin biscuit flavours rather than Ginger Nuts. Warms to a lovely lemonish lick, again not too blunt. A well balanced beer, complimentary flavours and a good itching feel in the mouth that wouldn’t be amiss from a Belgian bottle. Tasty stuff for the first of the sixty bottles of Norfolk beer I have to work my way through this summer.

Bottle. Golden beer with a well hopped aroma with probably some ginger and citrus. The flavour is very bitter and dry. Overall a very nice beer.

harrisoni (13716) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2008
Cask gravity at Cambridge BF 08. Gold with thin white head. Odd kiddie sweet sherbert aroma. Ginger comes through and so does some lemon drizzle cake. Light and has some real lemon and ginger, but flavourings are light and work quite well. Quite lively and envigorating. Certainly works well. Decent. Finish is very welcoming.
