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.

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.

Bottled. Oranngeish amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is lemon and ginger along with some maltyness. Flavour is much the same. Balanced. Quite longlasting aftertaste.

(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

Hazy amber beer. Very dry palate. Watery malt with apologetic hints of ginger and a whisper of lemon. Very dry finish. Blandness abounds! Bitter lemon in the aftertaste, Nope, hard work!

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.

Bottle, 4.0%. OK citric aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Good citric flavour, nicely rough bitterness. Hint of yeast in the aftertaste.

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.
