A Belgian style amber with ginger added. It is a malty and fruity beer with hints of ginger in the nose and in the flavor. Low in bitterness, dominated by the malt and flavors of the yeast. Brewed exclusively for the Ginger Man restaurant group in NYC and Connecticut.

Sample at brewery. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells like gingerbread. Tastes like gingerbread. Very quaffable. Finishes clean with little bitterness. Should pair nicely with a variety of foods. Best thing I’ve had here so far.

On tap at the brewpub. Ugly appearance: urine yellow with zero head or lace. Aroma captures my attention more than anything else. Pungent ginger, malt, and spices. Taste is ginger centric, supplemented by bland, generic "light beer filler" that I can't quite finger. Again, it's about what I expect from CL: mediocre at best, and entirely forgettable.

Draft at the brewery. Poured a cloudy gold with some light head and lacing. Nose of spice mostly. Ginger is present as well as the Belgian yeast spiciness. Good carbonation and medium body. The lady friend loved this one.

The ginger comes through in the flavor and aroma, with hints of spices as well.

Golden / amber, slight haze and a small off-white head. Aroma of the ginger (quite muted), malt and some caramel. Restrained taste of the ginger, medium bodied with some more fruit, Quite a dry finish. A bit too refined.

Drinking this at the ginger man. Gold with a small white head. Yeasty graham crackers, touches of ginger, dough. Lots ginger flavor, little heat if any from the ginger. Cheerios? Dull finish, needs a bit more zip for me.
