Tap @ Nodding Head. Poured a clear bright yellow color with a white head. The aroma was a dominantly lemon grass. The flavor was sweet lemon. The lemon ran throughout the length of the flavor. The finish was a large amount of cereal tasting malt. Very light bodied.

TomDecapolis (4425) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUL 22, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a translucent golden yellow with a small bubbly white head that left some lacing. Aroma of rice, lemon grass, lots of ginger and some cereal grains. Flavor of ginger, rice with hints of lemon. Some tea characteristics. Might go ok with some Asian dishes. I did not really dig this one as a stand alone beer though. Thin and too much ginger for my taste.

Clear yellow with a medium head. Light bodied and sweet, with some lemon and ginger. Not too over the top with the spices. Honey like texture, sweet finish. Cool name.

Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Draft-Poured golden straw coloring with little head. Aroma was fruity. There was nothing drinkable/enjoyable about this beverage. I found it very bland, flavorless, and very very disappointed. After getting to say "Monkey knife fight" outloud it was all downhill

Draft at the Brewpub. My appologies to those out there who enjoy this beer, but I couldnt get more than one sip of this beer down. It poured a golden in color with a pure white head. The aroma is fruity with a strong spicy character. However there is something about the flavor/palate that made this beer undrinkablle to me.

Enjoyed a pint of this on draught at the brewery in Philadelphia, PA. This beer is a golden lager, that is infused with giner and lemongrass, making for a very unique, interesting, very flavorful brew. This beer pours to a beautiful, bright, golden, color, with a tall, white head, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is just fantastic, with pungent and spicy aromas of ginger, and citrus/sour aromas of lemongrass. The palate is firm, with good, crisp, pale malt flavor, that acts as a spring board to pungent flavors of ginger, with wonderfully sour lemongrass flavor. This beer finishes with more good crisp pale malt up front, then ends, with spicy ginger notes, and flavors of lemongrass that lingers. I was floored by this beer. I’m a huge fan of Thai food, and this beer would have been pure magic with Thai dishes. It was akin to drinking a cold bowl of Thai lemongrass soup. If you love Thai flavors, you will love this beer. The lemongrass really is the star here, and it works so well in this beer.

blah, this is a really weak beer. Definitely has some of that spice you’d find in a pumpkin beer but this is way watered down. Not worth it.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Pale straw body with substantial carbonation and a pure white head. Unique and pleasant herbal aroma with pungent ginger spice and apparent lemongrass, plus some pale, lightly nutty malt qualities underneath. Flavor is medium sweet and buttery with overpowering ginger. Comes across as spicy, grassy, and a little soapy with medium bitterness. Insufficient malt character. Light-bodied palate. Too one-dimensional for my liking.

Very interesting, yet refreshing beer. Lemon grass aroma with ginger. It poured a light blonde. Very interesting flavor, a lot of ginger, some citrus, a little tartness. Very light, it would be great back in florida in the summer!
