nearbeer (5523) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2014
650 ml. Lightly hazy amber with a lasting ring of bubbles. Nose is earthy honey, bubblegum, toast, light citrus and resin. Taste is honey, orange toffee, wheat, earthy tea leaf and a touch of resin. Thankfully the ginger is subdued and only shows a bit in the long finish. Medium body is smooth with low carbonation and to the sweet side.

pours a nice amber color with white head, aroma has some citrus notes to it but you can really smell the booze, flavor is very sweet with a decent alcohol finish

Bottle. Deep amber. Nice full mouthfeel. Nose and taste are strongly of honey with a very mild ginger finish. Sweet without being cloying.

A very strong aroma of honey with touches of bubblegum and followed by some warm ginger. Appears clear copper with a few streams of rising carbonation, swirls of off white foam play on the surface and touces of lace grace the glass. Taste is very honey, sweet, but balanced with acidic and bitter ginger with some gentle bready malt on the end.palate is light and fizzy, nice. Overall, this is a great beer, I plan to buy more, if I can find it!

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Clear golden pour with a slight red hue and a slick of off-white foam. Sweet honey with ginger over clove and heavier malt in the aroma. Taste is honey up front with ginger quickly giving way to a denser malt flavor with some candied sugar and clove. Lightly coating mouthfeel. The honey and ginger nicely compliment the beer.

3.4
Dfonorow (2250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2014
On tap at Chipotle Festival. Dark amber with an average sized white head. Aroma is mellow with notes of yeast, pale malts, pepper, and honey. Flavor is a bit sweeter with added lemon zest, ginger, and caramel. Finish is full of spice and a bit of booze.

3.6
AcctError31456 (620) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
The aroma is some Belgium yeast, earthy, leaves. Pours a clear copper/orange brown, off white frothy head, mostly diminishing. The taste is bitter/sweet then a little sour. The body is medium, the texture creamy a little slick, the carbonation fizzy and the finish bitter. Not bad, think I was looking for more of a honey taste/aroma.

Copper color with a small white foam head. Smells like sweet honey and tastes like nectar, with some yeasty sweetness as well. Very tasty.

3.3
Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Dark gold pour, quick white head. Strong florall and honey aroma. Flavour carries over with honey and light gingery spice and light biscuity malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a orangish color with a slight off white head. Taste sweet, honey, ginger. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
