3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper color with a thick head of foam. Aroma is light but obvious ginger and a little bit of honey. The ginger comes screaming out in the flavor. Lemongrass is there, but very subdued. Moderately malty and somewhat sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale brown color with thin, creamy white head. Fruity nose lost in the fine breeze outside, but the taste is a most excellent ginger and some other spices.

Very fruity aroma on this beer, surprisingly so. The flavour was very sweet, from the honey I guess. Pigfoot hit the ginger right on the ehad as well. This is something I would figure that my wife would like as it is very unobtrusive and tasty.

rass, and some spices. This one employs raspberry blossom honey, ginger, and lemon grass, American malts, American yeast....not sure about the hops.
Clear, amber/dark orange color, huge billowing creamy head, intense carbonation in the glass...
Ginger hits the nose, first, then the fruit...sweet honey underneath...not much from malt, little if any from hops.
Pleasant on the tongue, if unobtrusive...sweetness, well balanced, is in charge...intriquing flavor, but simple interplay on the palate. Could use more something something...
A unique combination of ingredients, an unusual and delightful flavor...but lacking in depth, texture, body...quite drinkable, though.
A good experiment, sure to find itís fans...just not sure if Iím one of them.
If it had some hops, Iíd like it better, I think...without them, this just lies on the tongue, doing nothing..
