On draft at Rapture in Charlottesville, VA.

One finger white head, translucent gold body. Nice lace.

Nose is bright, spicy *ginger*. I prepare for excitement.

Potent ginger in the taste. Not ginger-snap, more like bitter, almost pickled sushi ginger. Bold, and I think I approve. Initially spicy, then becomes more bitter. Perhaps too bitter.

Pleasantly fluffy feel-- any brighter might make it too spicy.

Bold choice, but a good one.

On Tap at the brewery. They start it from a German pilsener base and hit it up with lots of ginger. Really crisp taste, with the ginger, citrus and the bitter from the pilsener all coming to a reasonable balance. Very refreshing. I could drink many of these on a hot summer day.

A:Light and bright, this lager pours a golden straw color. About a 1/2 inch of white head that dissipates within thirty seconds of pouring with the tiniest amount of lacing.

S:As soon as I opened the bottle, I could smell the ginger. Strong, but not overpowering with a fair amount of citrus and a hint of earthiness

T: First sip is full of ginger, as the nose promised. Ginger gives way to lots of lemon and lime, more than anticipated upon first sniff. As the beer gets warmer, notes of spice (my guess would be coriander) start to come through on the back of the palate and the ginger subsides to yield to the crisp, citrusy notes. Hops provide a nice little backbone that carries the beer to the end of the glass. Very light and refreshing, none of the flavors are weak nor too aggressive.

M:Light and thin, a little watery at first. As the beer got warmer, the body rounded out a little bit with a consistently clean finish. Definitely a lager.

O:A nice summer session beer. Definitely a great transition lager for people who are used to only drinking Crabbies. I wouldn't be mad about sipping one of these pool side.
