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.

This is one of my favorite summer brews, and still ranks high on my favorite names list. Pours a clear pale gold with little head. A wonderful aroma of lemon and ginger. Only problem was we kept going back for it, but they never brewed it the rest of the summer. The night I had it, I drank so much I couldn’t see straight. A very good beer.

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.

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.

TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, 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.

An asian influenced blonde lager you say? Well. Okay. Pours a clear straw. White head. Odd nose. Ahh. I get it. Asian influenced. Lemongrass and ginger in the mix. Full flavor from it that rescues it from being just another boring ass lager. Feel is smooth on carbonation and better than average on the liquid. Overall the lemongrass and ginger make it quite an interesting brew. I like it.

Tap at Noddinghead. This is a great killer cool beer. Pours yellow with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet lemongrass Taste is sweet with lemongrass and a lot of cool herbalness.
