Cask at the brewpub. From old notes. Nose is ginger. Flavor is burning ginger. Can’t really taste much else! Overwhelming, though very interesting as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Knott Bar, Manchester. Clear bright amber shade. Thin head coats the glass. Aroma and taste are suffused with ginger, which is rather mild rather than anything approaching throat-burning. Only one real note, but it’s clearly very well worked.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
August 19, 2013 - handpull cask at Southampton Arms. Hazy deep gold with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of sweet grain and earthy floral bitterness, some alcohol. Taste follows, with initial very mild ginger but it develops a strong and earthy bitterness pretty much all from the ginger root. Light body, astringent and a bit still, medium dry almost gritty finish. Not bad.

Really not for me this one so I’m glad I only had a wee sample. Ginger yes, but not pleasantly so.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Expected more spiky ginger in this, but produces a nice smooth, easy-drinking flavour with enough of a spicy tingle to satisfy my ginger urges.
