Appears gold in color. Slight haze to it. Its white head is one-finger in size.

I smell ginger, cracker malt, earthy hops and faint citrus once it warms up.

I taste the cracker-like malt up front with ginger spiciness sitting on top. There's just a kiss of grapefruit on the finish along with a slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is appropriate.

This is enjoyable, but maybe I've come to expect too much from JA as they usually impress me a ton. I wish the hop profile was more pronounced, especially since the label says "highly hopped!" and I know what they're capable of with H.U.

It's a nice drinker, I just wish the hops came as advertised and the volume was turned up a little. Boy I sound American don't I?

500ml bottle served in a nonic. July 2012 indicated on the back label. Pours a light, golden-orange with a four inch, cascading, fluffy, rocky, cream-colored head. Head exhibits excellent retention and thick, textured sheets of lacing are revealed during the tasting. Nose suggests citrus rind, grapefruit, floral aromatics and an earthy/spicy character. Taste is somewhat consistent with the nose - grapefruit rind makes an appearance; however, there's also a suggestion of chamomile, citric acid and a lingering, earthy bitterness at the finish. Ginger is present, but very much subdued (a little bit goes a long way). Mouthfeel is light-medium, but closer to light, with a pleasant, lively carbonation that cleanses the palate and gives a little more depth to the body. Overall, a refreshing and nuanced hoppy lager with a tea-like character. Not bold, but the flavors muddle together nicely with a hops presence falling somewhere between an APA and an IPA.
