Ginger Jaque, the second release in Lazy Magnolia’s Brewer’s Choice Series, invokes the likeness of one of our premier international award winning amber rye ales (AmberJaque) spiced with a bold zest of ginger. Brewed with carefully selected rye grains, traditional malts and hops, drinkers experience a heavy aroma of sweet ginger on the nose accompanied by a spiced rye finish. If you should find yourself amongst friends one chilly winters eve, this brew will undoubtedly prove a warm and inspiring companion.

Draught, Avenue Pub. Amber and bright. Smells quite gingery. Light ginger and toasty malt character. Rye finish. Good brew - it works.

Growler... Lightly hazed amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is quite subdued, but finally shares subtle notes of cookie dough, ginger, black tea and rye. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced, delivering pale malts, black tea, unmalted rye and the tiniest sliver of ginger. Finishes crisp and perfectly clean. Nothing really reaches out and grabs me by the balls here. Just a lazy-day, thirst-quenching brew with just enough rye and ginger to make things interesting.

Growler from dcschiller. Clear apricot color. Aroma is loaded with great ginger and malt. Flavor had a huge ginger flavor without the common burning that ginger beers commonly have. Very nice.

Growler to pint (thanks mikem409). Looks solid; amber with low head. Smells good; ginger. Tastes decent; gingery with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Growler pours courtesy of dcschiller, thanks Dave. Pours somewhat opaque copper to gold with off white head. The aroma has pretty smooth ginger bready notes as well as a bit of sweet crystal malts in the background. The taste has malt sweetened smooth ginger that rolls toward less sweet malts and slightly brighter and bigger ginger notes to midway and into the finish. I’m not a big fan of ginger enhanced foods or drinks but I’m liking this just fine.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Growler. Clear amber color with ivory head. Big ginger meat, holiday spice, caramel aromas. Medium body. Lightly sweet gingerbread cookie flavors with caramel, holiday spices. Smooth easy finish--nice ginger brew

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Amber clear, scattered lacing. Ginger forward aroma, ginger snap, molasses, cookie. Light body. The ginger does not overwhelm the flavors and neither does the rye. It’s light and had nice cookie character. actually quite a nice beer very well made.

unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Growler, purchased @ Pop’s, Suwanee. Pours a deep amber color, light tan head. Aroma of spicy, gourmet, Ginger Snap cookies. Sweet and very spicy ginger all through the nose. Caramel flavor, tingle of rye malts, floral sweetness of ginger. Very mild. Overall, earthy character. Nice bitterness balanced with the loads of spice. Finishes dry with a long peppery tingle on the tongue.

wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Tasted on draft at the 12 South Winter Warmer in 2011. Pours clear bright orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is ginger and spiced apple with some light earth and bread malt underlying. The flavor is lightly sweet bread malt up front, moving to tons of ginger, the spiced apple coming through lightly, and a hint of the earthy yeast. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long ginger finish.
