2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on draught: Poured sort of reddish-copper colour with a small white head. Aroma was pleasent, noticeable cinnamon, bready and ginger notes on the nose. It was looking good so far but then i tasted it and was dissapointed immediately. Flavors were weak, mouthfeel was light, spritzey but taste was super thin. Not overly malty but just dull flavours.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazed, light copper color with a smallish off-white head. Aromas of dough and ginger, not a big surprise, but not overpowering and a nice seasonal scent. Flavors follow well with the scent. Some malt and dough mix with ginger to give a cookie quality. The ginger is not sharp or overdone (something that I have found to be a hard thing to happen in many a ginger brew). A pleasant ginger brew.
