A: The. Beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a faint amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderately strong aromas of ginger are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but also has some wheaty flavors.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little one-dimensional but is pretty nice if you like ginger.

Pours a clean straw color with a small head, decent lasting thin cap on top though with no pacing on the glass.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with a mild floral hop presence, not picking up much ginger on the nose.

Taste starts out with the malt backing and a light aspect of ginger, the ginger adds a clean fresh crispness to it, hops have a decent presence in the aftertaste, reminds me more of a Pils than a wheat ale though.

Poured into a weizen glass. Poured a very pale amber, with a thin bubbly 1 finger head. Small amount of cling to the head, but disappeared very fast. Handful of streams of carbonation rose from the bottom. Aroma was a bit bitter, mostly wheaty, but with some sharpness of ginger mixed in. As it rested, banana could be detected as well. Taste was wheaty, before shifting to a bit of ginger, then finishing as a grassy leafy flavor. Felt good in the mouth. Not overly carbonated, and a bit of stickiness so that it felt like it had substance. Overall not bad

This beer poured an orange/golden (brinze?) color with minimal head that did not linger.

Aroma - the aroma was mostly reminiscent of a wheat beer. Some floral notes and just a very weak hint of ginger. Some earthiness as well and a bit floral.

The taste is malt/wheat making an immediate impact.There is some light, fruity aspect to this beer and I couldn't put my finger on it - though apple or pear, then maybe very light citrus notes The ginger shows up late in the taste and is in no way overpowering or spicy, butt here is a decidedly earthy note as well. The ginger lingers well into the aftertaste. There's a sweetness that ties everything together.

The feel - I thought the beer was slightly under-carbonated but it was still bright and lively somehow. Light bodied.

Overall - a very nice beer to drink on a hot summer day. The ginger plays well, but there is that earthy note that was initially very strong yet faded after a few tastes. Nice beer.

Reviewed from notes over the weekend.

A- Poured into a pint glass with a hazy golden orange body. Big creamy white head with great retention. Tons of lace pillows.

S- Pale ale feel with some wheat, light caramel, apple and fresh cracked grain feel to it. Just a bit of ginger here.

T- Ginger forward for sure in the flavor. Nice wheat, light biscuit, cracked grain, apples and light fruits to support the ginger.

MF- Light bodied but creamy as the head might suggest and the wheat lends a feel like this. High carbonation good with the ginger flavor. Low bitterness.

A solid drinkable brew with a nice ginger forward flavor. Sort of like a pale ale wheat beer.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 3/4" eggshell head over the clear golden amber brew. Airy head lasts well, with average lacing. Aroma is sweet with a touch of tartness.

Taste is pale malt sweetness to start, again some mild tartness in the middle, and closes with light bitterness and ginger notes. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, with drinkability also above average. Not a bad first offering for me from Foley Bros.
