3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is a hazy orange with an initial nice white head that resides quickly. Aroma is a ginger, sweet, spicy. Taste of ginger is strong going sweet to bitter but is nice, crisp and refreshing. Overall not to bad of a beer. I think with changing the amount of each ingredient it could be better. Same with Nice Spice. Less or more of one thing can change it and make it better. But again overall a pretty solid one if you like ginger and hef's

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bright golden orange with a minimal orangey white head. Strong ginger and spice aroma. A bit like a ginger snap. Tastes similar with a bunch of additional orange flavor. The aroma and flavor was much more pleasant as it warmed.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Appearance is a hazy golden-orange with no head. Aroma is wheat, banana, rye, and a sour scent like lemon. The taste is similar, but it is also sweeter. I can definitely taste the ginger. Smooth and crisp feel. Itís not bad, but Iím not a big fan.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with an off-white head. The aroma is ginger with
spicy rye, hops, and fruity yeast. The flavor is light sweet and light to medium bitter with fresh ginger and a good amount of spicy rye. Nice refreshing citrus tones in the background.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Aroma is of ginger and spicy rye, palate is nice malt and rye then the ginger pops and its spicy warming and refreshing all at once. A perfect summer beer! Sure may sound odd but tastes fabulous.....its what Shorts does best!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 02.05.2009
Aroma has lots of ginger, sweetish malty notes (rye?) and some resin. Flavour has sweet, resiny malt, some stinging ginger and peppery spices. Once again an odd beer from Shorts and once again I like it.
