Poured from bottle into a tulip. Bottled on 3/15/2011 stamped on bottle. Pretty cool label.
A: Rich golden/amber with nice carbonation and a thin white head that dissipates quickly. I didn't get much lacing to speak of.
S: Not as aromatic as I expected. A little sweet ginger and malt in the nose, but it's faint. Became more fragrant as the beer warmed.
T: Flavor department has more going than the aroma. A lot of toasted malt up front with sweet and herbal ginger taking over. Ginger can overpower a dish if you use it liberally, but it's balanced very well in this beer. Some wheat in the middle and a very slight hops finish. Very good for this genre.
M: Very smooth, medium-light bodied. Malt creaminess up front and only a tad watery at the finish. Could use a bit more of a bite at the back end, but still pleasant.
O: A very good spiced beer in my opinion. This genre is open to quite a bit of interpretation. I am a fan of ginger in general, but know too well how it can often be too much. Juju pulls off ginger in beer very nicely.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
