2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
THOUGHTS: Sounded very interesting, but reminded me of a less flavorful pumpkin or holiday ale. I just felt that the pale ale style wasn’t complex enough for the ginger to work well with. It wasn’t that it was bad, just not as good as I was expecting.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark yellow with nice carbonation and a small, sudsy, white head that mostly lasted. There wasn’t much head there, but it didn’t go away quick. The aroma was mostly ginger. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, while the finsh was moderately sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter and sour with an average duration. The flavor was mostly ginger but there was also amlost a little lemony too with just a little hop bitterness. The light to medium body was I guess gingery with fizzy carbonation with a slighlty metallic finish.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear light amber with tiny sparkle, 1/2 finger width fizzy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is strong ginger over mildly malty base. Taste is as aroma--can’t really make out too much other than the ginger. Palate is light bodied with lively carbonation and ginger finish. Overall, a straightforward experience. No nuance but if you want an alcoholic subtler version of a ginger ale, this is for you.

Pours copper with a thin head. Aroma is full of ginger. The flavour is far too sweet but some nice ginger notes in it. Not a good beer tbh.

3/20 ginger and beer. Doesn't work at all. Had a couple of sips then put it down the drain.

Bottle from Beer52. Golden-amber, no head, prickly fizz. Smells of ginger powder and plastic. Tastes better than it smells- more dry ginger powder, a little lemon. Sweetish, maybe a little watery and lager-y though. Grew on me as I drank more, but maybe not enough.

a little on the weaker side - watery body. Fruit and ginger on the nose and especially the flavor where there’s not a whole lot else going on. OK.

Lots of ginger on nose and on the tongue. A nice spice beer. Clean crisp and very herbal.

Frisch vom Hahn im Hopfenreich. Es ist wirklich gingerbetont. Ansonsten wenig aufregend.

Tap at whole Foods Bedford
Deep golden bordering on amber. Huge ginger on the nose with some faint sweet bready caramel maltiness underneath. Very herbal and a bit distracting imho. Reminds me of a cough drop, not a fan.
