Bottle. Pours a light orange amber with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh ginger, lemon and light hops. Flavor was pale malts, ginger, grains, bread and had a touch of caramel.

On tap at brewpub, 060813. Light hazy yellow with a frothy head. Lots of fresh ginger in the aroma. Taste is ginger with a light malt sweetness, light body. One dimensional but very refreshing on a hot day.

Clear amber pour with a nice off white head. Aroma has a lot of ginger but also some citrus and toffee. Taste has a ton of ginger and other spice qualities with some caramel and vegetables. Vegetable aftertaste.

12 oz bottle, Kenny Road Market, $1.99. Orange piss with ginger. At least it tastes like fresh ginger and not 3-year-old dried. Terrible.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Proof. Pale straw pour with a small white head. Herbal, ginger aroma, slightly chemically, weird. Flavor is the same with a thin body and no finish. No thank you.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Federal, Durham. Pale gold pour like a macro lager. But itís the nose that gets you, a raw, aggressive dose of the stuff. Mouthfeel is medium, appears to be a competent pale ale marred by an excess of ginger (not of the candied variety either) that ought to lightly accentuate the hops but instead just railroads everything.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Its OK. Pours like a ginger ale in color, not much white head. Smells of orange and slight ginger juice. Sweet, hint of ginger, a little nutmeg, but thatís about it. Interesting but could be way better on the mouth feel and by upping the taste to it. Otherwise blah.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a bubbly clear hold on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma is fresh ginger and bready grains. Taste is a ginger spice pale ale with no go presence, just malted grain. Decent, but nothing awesome.

Clear gold pour. White head. Aroma is anise. Taste is ginger. Give me some sushi. Make me a boilermaker.

Ginger aroma and some taste. Overall disappointing. Probably would work on a hot day but not otherwise. Canít see myself drinking more than one at a time.
