3.05/5  rDev +17.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Any info about the style is tucked away in small print on the individual bottles, so I'd avoided this beer until I got a Starr Hill mix pack.

The pour says pilsner. Big but fizzy head. Yellow.

More spice than beer to the smell. Tons of ginger. Crisp

Taste is pretty bland. The ginger comes through more in the smell than the taste. Bit of a generic "yellow beer" aftertaste would be better with more spice or more beeriness.

Drinkability is high except for the aftertaste. I could pound a ton of these without thinking about it. Reminds me of a Bud Light Lime with some ginger and a little more body.

Overall, I'd probably not drink this again. There are better spiced beers, better summer beers, and better ginger beers widely available. Starr Hill makes some great brews and some that really test my regional loyalty to mid-Atlantic beers. This is closer to the latter.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: 1.5 finger bright white foam head on a hazy bright golden body. Decent lacing and retention.

S: mild citrus, mostly lemon and lime with some corriander and mustly pale malts.

T: Mild lemon and malts up front with a minimally tart lime and spicey finish.

M: light body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: Overall both aroma and taste are very mild. Its not a bad tasting beer but too bland.
