2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden colored beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Lots of ginger on the nose, and some citrus. Not much else going on due to the amount of ginger. There’s some malty notes in the flavor, caramel and bread, with ginger, citrus and a little bitterness. Medium body, nice carbonation level, and mostly dry on the palate. Some bitterness and faint notes of metal in the ginger dominated finish. Way too much ginger I think, why do so many breweries fail to make a subtle ginger flavored beer? Of course, because they don’t want to, but still. 130829

Light amber color with a white head. Smells slightly citrusy, maybe some of the grapefruit coming though, but the ginger is much more prominent. Quite light overall. The flavor is quite heavy on the ginger, perhaps too much. A little bit of citrus, too. Quite refreshing, actually. Light body with medium carbonation.
