A tropical lager brewed with fresh lemongrass and ginger to produce a truly unique taste experience. Perfect with spicy food, or just to chill from the heat of summer.

This is by far my favorite beer for the summer. It has a wonderful aroma, great appearance and the mouth feel is tremendous. Being from Jersey it is always a treat to cross the bridge and hit Nodding Heads for some great food and even better beer.

TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Draft: Clear pale gold. Clean vibrancy to the nose with ginger, soft hops, doughy malts, and yeast. Slick, round mouthfeel. Lemony, fresh melon interplay to the flavor, coupled with mild buttered malt sweetness and lemongrass. Mild effervescence fused with soft flower and citrusy acid notes to liven the delicate, yet relentless, crackery malt attack. Grassy finish is mostly overrun by the sweet maltiness. Very stylish brew with stellar balance between the juicy acidity and plush malt profile.

strange honey ginger aroma, slightly medicinal, golden, the lemongrass is very strange in there, gives it a salted lemon rind finish. i´m not convinced that spicy beer is the best accompaniment to spicy food

Ginger and dry lemon evident in nose. Tropical = crisp, light, dry. Tangy, wheaty finish. Very slightly buttery but no sign of diacetyl. Tasty and subtle.

This and the California Common proved to be my favorites from my trip to Nodding Head. This is a clear gold with a nice head. There’s a light herbal aroma. It’s a bit grassy with a dry malt finish. Tasty, but light.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Poured a gold color with no head or lace. Sweet malt, and light hop aroma. Light citrus, mildly tart and sweet ginger taste. Rather smooth and malty.

muzzlehatch (4830) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2004
6 oz draft sample, at the brewpub. Pale urine-yellow, very little nose (some lemongrass, maybe, if you try hard). Creamy mouthfeel, very full, maltier than I expected, slightly spicy. Quaffable, vaguely interesting, but no big deal.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Lemondrops and spice. Camphor aroma. Pale yellow with small white head. Light carb with watery light body. Very citrusy and spicy. Watery taste. Good flavor but not one I'd want to drink all night.

Excellent lager, absoutely love the name of this brew, medium bodied lager, the lemons & ginger really stand out in the flavors, didn’t really have all that great of a head, awesome summer brew
