Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear gold with a frothy, off-white head. Definitely some ginger in the nose, with a bit of citrus fruit as well. Light sweet flavour with strong acidity, more ginger notes, rindy citrus, lime, lemon peel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sharply acidic in the finish, with more citrusy tartness, ginger. Novel stuff with the ginger aspect. Good.

Theydon_Bois (17221) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Keg at the brewery, 29/01/16. Clear golden orange with a decent off White head. Nose is root ginger, spice, bitter citric peel, sharp lemon, light funk. Taste comprises zingy lemon, damp straw, light herbal grains, ginger evident but less prominent than aroma. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with a light acidic whisper. Decent enough for a beer carrying ginger.

slowrunner77 (10231) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Nose is heavy ginger and lots of lemony oaky funk. Flavor follows. Iíll never get sick of ginger but as good as this is, it doesnít distinguish itself in their house of awesomeness.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear orange gold with a small eggshell colored head that settles into a ring and leaves ropes of lace in the glass. Notes of ginger, lemon and lime citrus, oak, sour candy, and some herbs. Light-medium bodied, with a sour, spicy (gingery) mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. Pretty nice.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 13, 2016
On tap @ Rare Barrel. Lightly hazed golden beer with a thin white head. Massive ginger aroma. A lot of floral and spicy notes, too. Plenty of lemon juice, slight vinegar, and some oak. Just a touch of sweetness, notably vanilla. Nice lemon, lime, and ginger flavors to it. Pleasant acidity without being overdone.
