look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
poured from bottle into a pint glass after sweating my tail end off on my way home...
a: nice honey gold with a hint of amber. thin head that goes away quickly to thin lacing...
s: yep, ginger... and beer
t: really mild ginger taste on a refreshing lager. not as overwhelming as some other ginger beers I've tasted have been. Just a hint of nice bitter on the finish.
mf: light and bright. not super fizzy.
This is another pleasant surprise for the summer... I am a fan of ginger so I tend to pick up ginger beers/ales when I see them. Most of them tend to be of the novelty variety that no matter how much i might enjoy them, i never want more than one at a time... This one is different. I could drink this all the time. I spent most of my early beer drinking summers with a tecate and lime... this has the same refreshment with out the skunk.

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.
