Decatur, Ga - on tap at Twain’s. Medium copper colored pour, off white head, Gingerbread cookie like aroma with some fresh lake water accents. Flavor has a bit of spicy bent to it with cinnamon dominating the spiciness, some brown sugar sweetness, a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is a thick enough. Pretty decent.

Pours dark brown with thick lacing. Full ginger & spice aroma. Gingerbread flavor is strong on the palate which is rich and creamy. Just like a gingersnap all the way through the finish. Slightly bitter keeps it from being too sweet.

Good ginger. Almost hot. Sweet malt balances well. Good Christmas beer. I’d drink this again, definitely.

Dark brown, red tints, sticky dark beige head. Aroma is pure cinnamon sugar, sweet malt. Taste is some caramel a mouthful of drying cinnamon sugar.

tap. Pours an opaque, medium brown, light tan head. Aroma of a warm ginger bread house. Flavor has a hop bitterness, along with the sweet spice on nuts at Oktoberfest. Rich grain, sweet malt character. Overall, it reminds me of the small, merange covered gingerbread bits you’d find during the holidays. Spicy with a slight sweetness. Isn’t this what little girls are made of?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, light brown. Fun nose - ginger, molasses, subtle clove, nutmeg, mace. Very appetizing. More harsh, though, on the palate with astringency from the abundant spice. Thankfully, there’s a nice molasses note underneath to help out.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper-brown. Clear but deep color. Off-white head, lacing. Gingerbread aroma is subtle and nice. Got molasses, spice including cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Bready flavors don’t come out enough for me. Ends up seeming thin with odd bitterness in finish that doesn’t integrate. Spiciness also vanished and some burnt flavors emerge. Didn’t like it as much as the others.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Clear, medium brown body topped by a small, white head.
Smell: Aromatic smell of gingersnap cookie batter with a tiny bit of caramel. It’s literally burdened with a generous dose of spices.
Taste: Flash of lightly sweet pale malts with a touch of grain before you’re tongue is knocked down by the punchy spice character. Again, it’s very much like a gingersnap cookie. Ground ginger powder, cinnamon, and vanilla sugar. The flavor remains cookie-ish and spicy until the very end.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: While it does make for one tasty pint, two might be overdoing it. A little goes a long way.

I am usually not one for gimmicky beers and this one is up there. When they call it a ginger beer, they mean it. Goes with the christmas/holiday season here but I do not think I could drink more than one of these. Spicey aroma with some cinnamon and a bit of ginger. The ginger flavor is verry apparent and almost overpowering in the flavor. Pours a dark muddy brown with a frothy but quickly fading off white head.
