(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Cloudy, pale amber golden with tiny impurities and an off-white head. Distinct aroma of citrus and ginger. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel and fruit and again distinct flavours of ginger. Drinkable indeed. 180807

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with minimal head. Malt and a surprising amount of ginger on the head. A surprising amount of ginger flavor survived the brewing process but dominated the honey.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden-orange color. There was lots of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Head was thin, white, and didn’t leave any lace behind. Aroma was of biscuity malt and ginger ale. Delicately sweet up front with a distinct ginger bite at the end that lingered. Flavor was reminiscent of ginger ale with a touch of lemon. Interesting, but wouldn’t go out of my way to get more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Aroma of seet malt, honey and ginger, with light sulfury notes. In mouth, refreshing concoction with sweet spiced honey, the ginger lingering throughout but restrained. Overall, an interesting brew. Bought in Oswego, Nov. 2006.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sampled on 2/21/07: Pours a clear pale golden with a thin ring of wispy white head. Warming honey sweet aroma has a touch of ginger spice. Starts mildly earthy and sweet, drying toward a warming honey finish. Does not hide its modest alcohol very well.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a one finger white head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of ginger and honey. Taste is all ginger with a touch of honey. This is as far as I got because I instantly poured it down the drain.
