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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma had a big amount of ginger with a sweet taosty malt base underneath. The flavor was sweet with almost a ginger candy quality to it. Like those fancy rectangular candies that are wrapped in paper. Light bitter finish. Light to medium body. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Chuky body with lots of flowers, lemon and ginger in the aroma; prickly palate and a sweet initial flavor with a drying, slightly astringent ginger finish; not too lemony or heavy on the ginger; quite differnt and not too horrible.
