This is a complicated category to review. The "Herbed/Spiced Beer" seems to range from lighter ginger spiced ales to darker spuce tree dunked porters. So while this isn't my favorite style, I do thik this beer represents the broad category well.
The beer pours a liquidy orange-gold color falling more toward orange. Head is half-finger high and settles to nothing with no lacing.
Aroma is very nice and complex - pine tree, hop flora, ginger, candied fruit, which all mixes into a well-rounded "spice."
Flavor is a little weak in comparison to the smell. Nice big tang of ginger and hop up fron that combines for this nice piney flavor, but that's followed by a relatively mild body and lackluster finish to aftertaste.
This is an easy drinking beer but the unique flavor could get overwhelming after a few.

A-pours a soft copper color with a fizzy white head that fades rather quickly
S-ginger dominates with some sweet malt aroma in the background
T-More ginger, with some bitterness following and finishes dry
M-medium-light bodied with tight carbonation
O-drinks almost like a dry club soda with ginger. Very interesting brew and I honestly enjoyed that it wasn't complicated by a lot of other flavors or sweetness

Perhaps a ginger beer is not my forte, as I'm not a big fan of ginger root even on sushi, but this seemed to have a weakness and one dimensionality that just didn't sell. The color was light and watery but presented a thick fluffy head. The aroma and taste were the same as ginger pervades with a watery herb twangy finish. Perhaps ginger beer is not my forte....oh yeah, I already said that.
