2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of ginger and wild flowers. Clear, pale orange, with a mostly lasting, white head. Sweet and earthy with some medicinal flavors, and a low bitterness. Light body, low carbonation, and an off-dry, gingery finish. Pretty good in smaller portions.
12 ounce can poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a clear gold with a white heqd that fizzles out quickly. The aroma has dried grass, lemon peel, and ginger. Taste is more on the bitter side with nuances of honey and lemon. Medium body and high carbonation. Cybercat (5841) - Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Taps clear straw yellow with a thin and not lasting eggshell head. Fresh ginger dominates the aroma but lets fresh malt share the stage. More malt comes out in the gingery flavor. Body is fairly firm, though fizz is lacking. Get your ginger on. jtclockwork (16603) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2016

On tap at the source.
On of the better ginger beers. Conceals the alcohol well. rondphoto (4455) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2015
On tap @ Wild Wolf / Nellysford VA --- Clear light amber color, with a light rim head, no lace. Taste, and aroma, are assertive ginger backed by light malt. Meek hops arrive in a finish that is long on ginger. Pretty much a one-trick brew, not quite up to balance and the light body this needs.

7/19/2014. Sampled at the brewery. Golden yellow with a white head. Spicy ginger aromas right off the bat. Malt, grain and grassy notes. It actually works quite well. Very refreshing. bubbleflubber (2227) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours golden into the glass, with a thin ring of suds that diminish down the pour. The nose is of ginger spice. Flavors are of a lighter blonde ale, lemon, grain and pils malts, finishing with a ginger spiciness. The medium body and smooth palate make for a nice food pairing with different meal styles. obguthr (6369) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Ginger nose. Clear golden, medium head. Intense ginger and daffodil flavor within a lemoon base, the two really not very compatible. Unpleasantly Bitter and perfumey. Odd for any beer, downright bad in a lager and this comes from a guy that likes west coast hopped pilsners.
