Draft. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has strong notes of ginger as well as lighter notes of dusty hops, citrus, and yeast. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of ginger, so much ginger, that it dries out the toungue towards the finish - too much ginger for my liking. The body is a bit light.

(On tap) Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. Sweetish perfumy nose - but not distinctly gingery. Medium body with a soft mouthfeel, sweetish malt and fruit and a somewhat astringent finish with some earthy elder accents too. The ginger is far too downplayed and doesn’t really make this any more interesting than the original Monroe version. Served too warm also. 090608
