L- dark yellow/dark straw like color that starts with a small white head. The head dissipates quickly leaving little to no lacing.

S- strong ginger smell followed by a light hops. very clean smell

T- light malt taste followed by strong ginger flavor.

M- medium to high carbonation but it is very thin on in body

O- I bought this as something different and really wanted to like this. It has a very clean taste but leaves much to be desired. I was expecting a well rounded beer but this just tastes an attempt to create something different for the sake of being different. Though it has a strong ginger taste as you drink more it feels unbalanced and unrefined. The body feels too thin without much complexity. If your expecting ginger you get it. I don't really think I would try this again unless it was free.

JuJu is a seasonal beer that I usually look forward to but now it seems lack luster. It's missing the spices that one would expect out of a good ginger beer, maybe a little watered too. It's still a low abv beer that I don't mind saving for warmer days in the springtime, though. Prob not $11 a 6 pack worthy either if i may say so.

Very weak and watery but has slight ginger flavor and it is very refreshing (summer / food) beer.

I purchased this in a mix-a-six from Brass Rail Deli in Campbelltown, enjoye chilled in a goblet shared with octopus89

The color is very hazed golden with thick white cap and fine bead with quick dropping head with no lace to speak of with visible carbonation. The smell is very pungent with tropical spice specifically a lot of fresh ginger and light fruit accent with a mild citrus zest note. The feel is moderately spiced with mild sweetness and medium carbonation with semi-dry finish no alcohol detectable in the feel.

The taste is very good I expected ginger but this is really tasty with fresh spice and citrus with subtle malt sweetness to back it up and the mild lemon element with ginger continuing in a mild way throughout with clean yeast and light toasted flavor in the malt. Overall I really enjoyed the tropical quality and refreshing taste in this sessionable ale -recommended if you enjoy a summer-refresher type of ginger beer, I would drink this frequently
