2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ Shrewsbury Beer Festival, Nov 14. Pours gold with slight haze. Aroma is strong whisky and restrained ginger. Taste is very boozy, with clear whisky notes and possibly even a little vodka alcohol in there? Ginger is present too but very subtle. Not my thing I have to say.

On cask at Bulls Head, Burslem. Pours golden ginger, strong whisky notes and kills the ginger. Not to my taste but I’m not a fan of whisky.

Bottled. ABM. 6.1%. Dark murky brown-amber color, good off-white head. Aroma of ginger beer and fermented raisins. Medium-bodied. Ginger, raisins and some alcohol, hints of wood in the flavor. Tickling ginger. Harsh aftertaste. Weird ginger beer indeed.

11th May 2013
Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Light palate, minerally crisp and semi dry. Nice ginger, fresh and tasty with just a little heat. Nice mellow whisky offset. There is even a little vanilla wood under the ginger and the minerals. Finishes light and dry. Some ginger heat in the aftertaste. Really quite good!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours hazy golden with a thin off-white head. The nose is ginger, liquid hand soap, fiery spice, lemonade and perfume. The taste is soap, earth, ginger, lemon, hand-wash, subtle whisky and spicy ginger beer with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Odd, but I don’t actually mind it. Reminiscent of ginger & lemon tea.
