Pours out golden yellow and sits a foggy golden amber in the glass with a large soapy white head, fizzling down to light skim, some lacing.
Strong aroma of fresh ginger (no way...), and a mildly sweet caramel infused malt background.
Tastes mildly sweet up front with some loose ginger flavors, but picks up a bit more character along the way. Light pepper blends with white apple flesh. Moderately bitter finish holds some grassy notes.
Crisp and refreshing in the mouth with moderate carbonation and a medium body. A spicy kick for a hot summer afternoon, this makes for a great mid-day brew. Flavor is well rounded and not weighted down with ginger, very simple but works well.

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.
