Pours cloudy but with nice heads. Emits a nice aroma. Thatís where the fun ends. Actually, the initial tongue contact is quite pleasant, but the aftertaste soon turns odd with its ginger (and cinnamon?) spices. The malty taste also overstays its welcome. I guess itís a fun beer to throw in the mix, but every once in a blue moon is probably enough.
I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma is caramel and bread. The taste was the same with a small hint of earthy hops. This was easy and pretty good. All of the beers in the sample pack were solid. Ktwse (4808) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of caramel, malt. Taste is sweetish with a mellow pine bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. 17Beer (343) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Malt and bread aromas. Pours a clear orange with an off white rocky head. Lots of lacing. Tastes of malt, pine and leather. Canít taste the ginger. Medium carbonation. Nicely balanced and drinkable. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Surprise find in a mix pack at the local total wine.
Jokes on me. Hat har.
Can. Pale copper orange. Watery thin. Malt heavy for a pale with light spicy hops, not really feeling any ginger.
Worst newb of the year so far - yay? Psytron (2238) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Can, BBE 25.8.2016. Smell of malt. Amber colour, beige head. Aroma of malt, some straw, some grass and hops in finish. Ginger not noticeable, which is a good thing. Mildly bitter, half light body. Fizzy carbon, slightly dry palate. Easy to drink, not challenging in any way. Presumably not suffered at all from being overage.

Served in Meatliquor in Leeds - served very cold. Pours amber, light fizz. Citrus flavour, smoky, with quite a floral finish. Pleasant session beer chinchill (4937) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2016
12 oz can served in standard pint glass. (From 2010 notes)
A - nice copper color with light tan head. Head is short-lived but leaves partial top coat and side lacing.
S - sweet floral malt with mild hops
T - Crisp, smooth and malty. Brewery reports that this "beer is flavored with crystal hop and a touch of fresh ginger"; the ginger (thankfully?) is just barely detectable. Citrus and caramel notes are more obvious. Nice progression of tastes and lingering finish.
M - a bit light. Well carbonated.
An interesting and malty but well-balanced PA "brewed with 2 row N. American barley and English crystal malt". hohops (983) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Appearance- murky amber, a golden base, one-finger beige head which lasts. Aroma- lots of bready malt, cereal, hints of dark fruit, hoppy hints. Taste- creamy malt, toasty, cereal and grains, wheat, soft fruity hops. Not much sign of the ginger. dwyerpg (6062) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Nothing particularly bad about this beer but itís quite boring. The only hint of ginger I get dries out the beer the flavor has little hops. Just eh. raymow (1602) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2016
can at Zavino at Drexel University - nice orangey color. Good slightly hoppy, slightly malty flavor.
