2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a very minimal wispy white head that ran to a thin ring. The aroma is more like ginger ale than beer. Loads of fresh ginger and to a lesser extent some lemon lime soda. Doesn’t exactly smell like beer, though there is a bit of yeastiness underlying it all. The flavor is quite nice and refreshing in and of itself, but not exactly what you want in a beer. Pretty sure my kids would like this. A light hint of alcohol and that underlying earthy yeastiness is the only thing that separates this from a soda. Light bodied and fizzy with a light lingering smack of ginger and lemon. I gues it might be a pretty good shandy, but not up my alley.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Hazy gold pour with a quick fading medium white head.
aroma is lemon and malted wheat, and gingerale.
Malty bready body with lemon and ginger, light honey and wet straw herbal component as well that is a bit unpleasant for me.

A WELL PUT TOGETHER brew with flavors of lemonade, clover honey and ginger just wafting thruout a creating nice dimension. looks somewhat like a wheat beer and there is some wheat beer in the mouthfeel.

Ginger and spice are mixed with a fruity sweetness and a honey flavor that carries through the finish. Light and interesting, a bit syrupy. Would be a better summer choice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is a murky and dull gold with no head and leaves no lacing. The aroma is very similar to ginger ale. The taste, however, is more complex. It’s actually more like your typical wheat beer with some ginger sprinkled in throughout. It surprisingly works really well! I had very little expectations for this beer but I find it drinkable and different. Not bad!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky yellow color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart artificial sugar, lemon, ginger and orange. The flavor was wheaty and bready with fairly strong notes of orange, honey and a hint of ginger. Medium length finish of bread, orange and honey. Moderately full bodied. Very nice.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Really had to breathe deeply to get much aroma, orange peel and imitation vanilla. No head to speak of, looking thru the glass bright and a bit too cloudy. Nice light citrus flavor at first that leaves behind a bit too much of sugary coating of the mouth. Not bad for a hot summer day but too sweet to have more than one or two.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with almost no head. Lemon and herb aroma. Picking up a touch of ginger. Body seems a bit watery and the flavors don’t really pop.
