Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served light golden colored brew with a one finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to give a nice level of lace.
Smell – The aroma is largely bready in nature with hints of tropical fruits of mango, a light orange citrus and some pineapple.
Taste –The taste begins with flavors of a bready malt mixed with a lighter fruit flavor of apricot. As the flavor advances mango and ginger flavors start entering the taste. The mango remains relatively light throughout the taste, but the ginger grows stronger as the taste advances further. In the end the mango comes to the tongue and along with the other flavors of the brew it leaves a slightly spiced and light fruity flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both fitting for the style and are good for the ginger spice and lighter fruit flavors of the brew.
Overall – A decent brew, but nothing all that exciting. It was worth a try, but not one I would likely go back to again and again as the flavors don’t meld together all that well in my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap
