Bomber from Whole Foods. Clear, orange-gold pour with a short white head which fades quickly to a thin rim. Nose is a lot of ginger and spices, with some sweet caramel malt. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Ginger, caramel, a bit of orange zest and something like nutmeg - maybe the galanga, which can be earthy-spicy or lightly spicy, depending on how and when it’s used. Fairly refreshing, but not something I’d have every day.

22. Lightly sweet palate, medium head that recedes in the glass Minimal lace, light carbonation, light hop flavor. Perfect ABV to carry the flavor along.
Excellently rendered ginger flavors in this beer: it has the warmth, fruitiness, and peppery kick of a good fresh knob of ginger. Fruity ginger aroma.
Delicious with spicy Asian foods.

Hazy amber beer. Dry palate. Fresh tasting ginger but it’s somewhat diluted and there is nothing much else going on. A very over dry finish with a trace of banana.

Thanks to goodzoid10 for sending this one.
pours golden, white head.
aroma, definitely some nice ginger spices along with a mild touch of orange zest.
flavors, light mouthfeel, ginger comes across nicely and not too overpowering for this 5abv beer. Hints of hops and the orange adds a nice sweet tropical note. Light and refreshing.
