3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown color with a small head. Ginger and nutmeg aroma. Very potent ginger flavor. After warming, it’s pretty dominant. Definite nutmeg and maybe some cinnamon. Light caramel and dry malt. Almost seemed like an old tobacco character as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a deep red-brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is fresh ginger and a pleasant malt sweetness. Maybe a touch of honey and a light spice as well. Flavor is similar. A good amount of fresh ginger, but well balanced with a nice, light-medium malt sweetness. Touches of bread, a bit of a floral note, and a hint of honey towards the end as this finishes with a light spicing and bitterness balanced with a clean malt sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, not a lot of complexity to this one, but really well balanced and extremely easy drinking. Very nice ginger note throughout with a light spicing and a touch of honey to add to the pleasant malt backing. Good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle. Can’t detect ginger in the nose or taste. More cinnamon and maybe allspice. Subtle favors. Light for 7%. Not bad. Dark red with a big tan head. Murky. Very good.

On tap at Groveland Yap, nice dark ruby pour with a frothy white head. Big intense aromas of ginger as well as flavor, kind of weird but kind of interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper brown color with a soapy frothy khaki head that settles to a soapy film and collar. Aroma has strong ginger coriander some cinnamon. Taste shows roasted malt subtle chocolate toffee and plenty of ginger cinnamon coriander clove and has a soft bitterness. Palate is thin to medium with a rather harsh finish. Decent brew, but over spiced for my taste.

Bottle from Amy! Clear dark brown pour, light, thin lasting head and an aroma of sweet (but not overpowering) fresh ginger. Flavor is nutty caramel, mellow ginger & clove and finished a bit sweet. Decent and worth picking up at least once.
