Well herbs. Ginger is a good one. Beer though gingerish, is not very huge on that.
Very clear, amber copper color. Little head, which goes away soon. I pour very diligently, so it will be way off others. Decent amount of bubbles coming up.
Smells a lot of ginger and some honey. No other distinct smell there. Not of malt, not of other ales.
Taste is a bit disappointing in that ginger is very mild. It is felt when it goes in. Sweeter at the beginning, may be due to use of some honey, to subdue the bitter herbal ginger. Somewhat more ginger and it could have well been a herbal anit cold-cough medicinal ale. You feel more ginger when you go on drinking.
Very light feel. Not a lot of carbonation.
Because of its herbal nature, more than 1 12 ounce bottle is not at all possible for me.
Decent ale overall.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler glass.
Appearance: Pours a light copper color with a minimal head that dissipates incredibly quick and leaves no lacing. (Maybe that's just a bad pour on my part?)
Smell: Very up front ginger aroma, but I also get hints of pumpkin and honey with some herbal hop aroma as well.
Taste: This beer goes through three stages. The initial gulp is very heavy on the ginger and quickly gets followed up by sweet, bready malt flavors. After swallowing is when the herbal, grassy hops show themselves on the sides of the tongue.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and light without being too thin or watery. Not too much carbonation, but it is a bit fizzier than I typically like.
Overall: Quite an enjoyable beer. It definitely deserves the right food pairing to go with it, though. I'm thinking I'll have a few with my next trip to my favorite Thai restaurant. With that being said, I can't see it being a staple in my refrigerator for the season. It will, however, be an interesting diversion from the same session ales I normally take to get togethers.
