3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half pint pulled at the Fat Cat in Norwich, a clear brown amber with a white bubbly head. A strong ginger aroma. Pleasant ginger flavour (not too strong or sharp) - just like freshly grated ginger. Smooth and clean mouthfeel - the best attempt to brew a ginger-flavoured ale I have tasted.

[Cask at GBBF 2004] A dark amber beer with no head. The aroma contains loads of ginger, while the flavor is sweet and dominated by ginger, leading to a dry hoppy end.

Cask, GBBF 2004. Amber, moderate white head and low condition. Gentle spicy ginger nose, more low ginger in the mouth over some gentle malt and a spicy warming ginger finish. Did I mention the ginger?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mid copper colour. Sweetish toffee aroma. Although the blurb doesn’t mention it, there beer is very obviously flavoured with ginger. In fact, the aroma reminds me of ginger beer shandy. Dryish malt palate, with ginger coming through strongly again. Not bad. Cask (gravity dispense), GBBF 2004.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
GBBF, London, gravity (I think). Sampled with chris_o and ungstrup. Very odd beer, but pretty good stuff really. Dark brown/ashy apearance, with a very complex and enticing aroma. Unusual flavours: sausage, ginger and a shandy feel. Reminded me of Lincolnshire sausages in particular. Full flavour, with a musky, lingering finish, perhaps some smoke too.
