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: Beer poured a very clear light copper color. Good head that dissipated quickly. Good carb. Lots of bubbles streaming toward the top.
S: Malty breadiness and ginger spice. I actually really love the ginger spiciness when I get a nose on this beer. Awesome.
T: Some caramel malt notes that quickly are overpowered by strong ginger. A little floral hop profile, but mostly ginger. Crazy drinkability to this beer.
MF: Crisp and light. Not overcarbed but good enough. Leaves a dryness on the back of the palate that is refreshing.
O: I love ginger, and I commend Left Hand's usage of it in this beer. It's real good. Right now it is 80 degrees outside and I about chugged half the glass in a couple minutes. This beer is fantastic while in the recommended 40-45 degree range. Once it started warming up it started losing its pop. But I will say it is crazy drinkable in this weather.
