Picked a bottle of this up at Russell's in Amherst, poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a deep, clear amber honey hue with a fizzy half a finger head that fades to lave a thin cloud and blanket.
S - Nose is lots of sweet malts, some light honey, and spicy ginger. Wish the ginger was a bit stronger.
T - Lots of malty sweetness, some light honey with some faint spicy ginger in the background. The ginger comes out a bit more as this warms up. Needs more ginger.
M - The mouthfeel isnt too too bad with this, nice for an herbed beer. Crisp, nice and refreshing for a warm day.
O - Overall though I Was rather disappointed with this beer. I was expecting ALOT more ginger but instead I have a much more malt heavy beer than I prefer. Oh well, for the $2 it cost me its not too bad.

Good Juju (Ginger Ale)
Left Hand Brewing Company
Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer
ABV: 4.00 %
Pours a hazed golden color, fizzy white foam cap stays a while and leaves some rings of lace. In the smell, herbs, lemongrass, ginger and wheat. A bit of a bready smell lingers and the ginger is right there. The taste follows the nose with a solid dose of ginger, herbal tea, lemon grass, and earthy hop notes. There is definitely some citrus and wheat malt flavors. Lots of ginger and a semi dry clean finish. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, an interesting beer with a unique flavor twist. Had it paired with Asian BBQ wings, pretty decent.

Poured into a standard pint glass.
Looks -- The beer is a dead-ringer for apple juice. Quickly dissipating head that leaves light lacing.
Smells -- Ginger, light sweetness.
Tastes -- Very light herbal sweetness up front, I'm trying to decide if the ginger is about right. I think it is, there are no cloying factors here.
Feels -- Uber light bodied, like water. A dry carbonated finish.
Overall -- Interesting, it almost doesn't feel or taste like a beer in any way. I'll enjoy the sixer, but won't be visiting this one again.

A: Pours a copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing.
S: Aroma of ginger, fresh grain with some malt sweetness and spice.
T: Taste of mild malt sweetness with a tart lemony nip and some spice in the background. Nice bitterness and a very clean finish.
F: Fairly medium body, very crisp and refreshing. Interesting character.
O: Not a bad beer, much better than I expected. Seems to go best with the summer weather.

3.38/5 rDev 0%
A: Nice amber coloring, pours to about a fingers worth of head that dissipates to a blotchy patch of lace across the top and around the edges.
S: Some hoppyness with a light ginger aroma as well. Not very aromatic.
T: Nice malty sweetness at the start makes way to a very nice combination of piney hops and ginger spicyness. Flavors are nice and crisp and your left with a very very mild bitterness.
M: Light carbonation, works well with the piney spicyness of the ginger and hops tag team. Left with a slight biscuit flavor on the palette that gives the impression of dryness however its not very dry. Hard to describe.
O: Not a bad brew overall. Nice mix of ginger spice with the piney hops. Wouldn't wanna have more then one or two at a time but another good job by the guys at Left Hand Brewing walking the wire and experimenting with different flavor combinations.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, oddly the freshness date is blank on this one. This pours a fizzy short lived white head, this color is an almost golden color. The smells are of ginger, a little sweetness, no real hop presence. The feel is medium to light. The taste is okay, a nice amount of ginger, a little bitterness from the ginger, okay not bad.
