Ginseng Pale Ale is the beer most likely to fly under the radar. Those who love it become loyal drinkers, unable to choke down anything other. Around here we say drink one of these and it’ll keep you up all night. Interpretation is strictly personal. Larry Evans, one of Missoula’s own, supplies us with the ginseng.

On tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy pale gold with a decent off-white head and a floral spicy aroma. The flavor is carbonated caramel malt with a peppery sting and a dry hop bitterness.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2010
7oz sample at brewery. Slightly hazy pale yellow, thin white head. Aroma of mild citrus and caramel. Taste is definitely more like a regular american pale than most spice/herb beers. Good balance of citrus and malt overall, medium light body, lively carbonation.

Cask Stillage from the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 26/09/2009 Some spiced aroma. White head. Clear golden coloured and a little spicy ginseng flavour. Pale with a little dryness in a crisp and creamy malt finish.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2008
On tap at Kettle House. Pours hazy gold with a lacy white ring of foam. Seriously earthy aroma and taste, aided and abetted by some citrus, fruit and vanilla. Dry finish that dissolves into nothing. An interesting beer.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2007
On draught at the brewery’s taproom in Missoula, Montana. Pours a hazy golden pale blonde brew with a thick white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of some flowery hops, earthy herbal spice and a touch of light multi-grain malt. Taste is light carbonated, light to medium bodied with more citrus hop and bitterness than the pale ale and hefeweizen sampled earlier. Finish is slightly dry at first and then clean with no aftertaste. The brewery’s taproom chalkboard pre-lists this beer as "The one. the only..." which I agree is one of the more outstanding herbal beers I’ve tried.

swanmann (734) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Bright but cloudy with intense lacing and carbonation. Medium bodied, bright flavor. I had a few flavors on my palate already but this was a great brew. A definite pick me up. Summery.
