hershiser2 (2049) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle: $2.20 from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours very pale yellow with only the hint of a head. Smells of skunk, grass, honey, and ginger. Taste of sweet honey, grasses, and burnt ginger... leaves an off aftertaste.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a slight, white, head. My notes on this beer are sparse, but confirm that it was indeed spicy and inclined towards sweetness. Fine.

climberbob (437) - Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle into tulip. Hazy golden w decent head on a hard pour that does not last. Floral pine honey aroma. Taste has some hints of honey and orange zest. Can't pick out the ginger. Disappointing low carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OnTheTrail (353) - Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Pours hazy yellow. Aroma honey, ginger, spice, fruit. Tastes like honey candy, but not overbearing. Just enough spice and hops to balance the honey, almost.
