2.6/5 rDev -22.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
355ml served chilled in a La Chouffe tulip
Pours with a light amber body, lots of bubbles emanating from the bottom of the glass. Thick puffy white head with good retention, forms about half an inch thick but settles to a modest dense whisp. Lots of patchy lacing
Smell, fresh and pickled ginger, galangal and a touch of aniseed. Slightly spicy on the nose, some thin bready malt in the background and a tiny alcoholic aroma
Taste, crisp and biscuity malt followed by tonnes of fresh ginger flavours. Gingerbread and some slightly metallic malt character on the finish. Some identifiable hop character, some citric hop flavour and sweet malt
I have to admit that ginger is one of the few flavours that I've not fond of in food or beverages, subtle ginger flavours backed up by garlic or a strongly flavoured main ingredient are fine but if the dominant flavour is of ginger I'm generally put off. Thus this beer seriously doesn't do it for me, tthe myriad of various strong ginger flavours put me off therefore I didn't enjoy this. If you are a ginger fan especially a fan of non-alcoholic ginger ale then you'll probably go for this, but not me...
