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.

Bottle from UncleMattie! Nose of ginger, graininess, honey; Gold with a small off white head; flavor showed off the ginger with a tiny bit of citrus in the background, along with some sweetness and a peppery finish.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Having said that, this is the best of the four, which was unfortunate for us as we had it first. It pours a light yellow color with an average, off-white fizzy head. Fully diminishing head, leaving behind virtually no lacing. Hazy body with small particles. Looks like a light lager. Aroma was of citrus, lemon, and ginger. Nothing too spectacular in the nose, but it is distinctive. Initial taste was moderately sweet, shifting to a light bitter at the finish with an average duration. Light on the mouth, it has a watery consistency with lively carbonation. Thoughts from the review were; not a great taste, the ginger taste was present, at least we were able to finish it (isn’t that what all brewers strive for?)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a golden color with a little head. Aroma was ginger, ginger, and more ginger. Taste was not good and that might have had something to do with the ginger aroma but, either way I didn’t like it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My not so vigorous pour resulted in a thin off white head that diminished quickly. Lots of sediment in this thick honey colored brew. Mild sweet aroma. Very sweet with mild ginger burn. Impressed.
