3.76/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

My first beer with ginger I bought it at superior liquor store in luisville, CO.
Nice to know that they use an organic ginger for this brew.
I pored this beer in a plastic glass at my hotel room it looked light copper, with 2 F head with some scattered laces.
The aroma is sweet and grainy and a faded ginger smell.
Very astringent and but you can feel its malty backbone all the way to the end wish is really great for a beer they call light.
Very good brew
