look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

750 ml bottle. Batch #14. 5.5% ABV. Bottled on 8/22/2013. Served in a DFH signature glass

Appearance: Pours a bright yellow with a small white head that dissipates nearly instantly. Body is lightly hazy with light visible carbonation.

Smell: Ginger is immediately noticeable, followed by herbs, somewhat medicinal quality, lemon and a really slight lactic quality. Not off putting, but overall quite weird.

Taste: Lots of ginger, followed by a strong menthol/cough drop character. Secondary to those are grain, lemon and a slight grassiness. Finishes spicy from all the ginger. Sourness is medium to high

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp with medium lively carbonation.

Overall: Not a fan of this one at all. Had a really overpowering ginger/medicinal quality that just made drinking it a chore. Might be worth a try if you're really into ginger, but otherwise I would avoid

Tastes of lemon-scented soap and chemicals. Smells mildly of regurgitated, low-grade Thai food mixed with cheap floor cleaner. This beer is undrinkable and one of the worst I've ever had.

Sour but not too harsh, slight hint of lemon.
