COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schrammís Ginger is a full-throated, unapologetic expression of ginger and honey.

It is created with California Orange Blossom honey from Silverbow Honey in Moses Lake, Washington, and real, diced ginger.

ctipping (1108) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2016
375 mL bottle. Clear pale yellow. Smells of all ginger. Nose burning ginger with a light floral honey. Tastes of a bright floral and even citrusy honey up front and then ginger. The ginger isnít as strong as in the nose. The honey is a very light honey, so it doesnít drink sluggishly. Nice.

Cybercat (4981) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Pours wan straw yellow, no head - but this is a mead. Honey aroma has a definite overtone of ginger. Flavor features wild honey and ginger notes, the latter not as strong as in the aroma. Mouthfeel has average body. Catch the buzz.

375 ml corked bottle. Served in a snifter, the mead pours a mostly clear gold color. Aroma is nice, the mead smells mostly like ginger, along with some honey and earthiness. I think itís a mostly sweet mead that tastes better than it smells (and it smells good). Thereís a lot of ginger flavor, and some honey and earthiness, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís smooth and easy enough to drink. If you like ginger and/or sweeter tasting meads, then I definitely recommend this!

Flight at the source. Pours light yellow. Aroma is lots of ginger, some honey. Booze. Nice. Flavor is ginger, definitely got that ginger burn. Nice. My favorite from them so far. I give this a 3.8 because although Iím not a big fan, I can appreciate that for this style this is exceptional.

pushkinwow (2513) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle from DanGeo - first mead opened from the package. Pours a clear pale gold with no head. Large ginger and lavender presence (curious if the honeybees are located near a lavender patch) that create a sweet and complex aroma with a warming booziness. Doesnít follow through for me on the taste with a sweet honey and astringent ginger combination a soapy lavender taste at the end.

Klimaet (1605) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshare ft. Lukasmh and Daawi thanks to Lukasmh and Bursprak. Pours clear yellow. Aroma has lots of windshield cleaner-like notes, ginger, honey, chemical notes. Taste has ginger, honey, floral, spice but the same chemical notes. Seems like nothings wrong with it but not on par with ANY of the Schramms meads Iíve had at all.
