[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] Light gold. Ginger is evident but is well balanced against the smooth, creamy, malty beer. Surprised me by being one of the better ginger beers I’ve had.

Cask (South Western Arms, Southampton) - Golden in colour. Spicy aroma with ginger, hops and spicy malt. The taste is hoppy with some citrus elements and a bit of a spicy kick from the ginger. Refreshing and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from CAMRA Beer Club. Whilst I’m not a great fan of beers flavoured with ginger, this one does what it says on the bottle. Poured a light golden colour, with a creamy head that lasted well down the glass. Quite hoppy with a strong citrus flavour well complemeted by a clear, but not overwhelming, taste of ginger. A nice version of this type of beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle that a friend had brought along to Towersey Festival 2009 Poured amber with a white bubbly head, bit sharp and most ungingerlike, in fact I would suggest that this is probably infected, its very poor, couldn’t even finish my fairly modest sample, told my friend to inform his supplier (CAMRA beer club) that this was no good because I also had a sample the night before which was equally ropey. Will try again on cask hopefully. A3 A4 F2 P1 Ov5 1.5
