Review from 2/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light yellow amber with a minimal white head and little lacing. Aroma of ginger and faint malt. Flavor is very dry with a hint of honey with ginger at the start, then just ginger, finishing with a dry, faint light hop and lager malt flavor. The ginger is nice, but little else going on. Light bodied.

Pours orange-amber with a white head that quickly dissipates. Smells mostly just like ginger. Ginger really dominates this beer as a whole. I'm not getting much else from the taste either. Rather light body and medium coronation.

How much enjoyment is had from those beer depends on how Much you like ginger.

great beer. smell and taste of ginger really is so soothing. nothing special about the appearance or mouthful but it lives up to the name it is given "good juju" I think i'll be drinking some more good juju soon and often. Left Hand does it again!!!!

Poured from the bottle into a Miller Lite pint glass at high altitude outside Denver, CO.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow color with a minimal white head that leaves little lacing.

S: Smells like candied ginger with a little bit of malt body. Almost no hop character here.

T: Basically tastes like a ginger chew in beer form. Ginger up front with some malt body for support. The finish is unfortunately quite watery. A bit of bitterness builds the more you drink.

M: Very thin, watery and undercarbonated. The worst aspect of this beer in my opinion.

O: If you're a fan of ginger, you might enjoy this beer. As a ginger drink, it's actually quite enjoyable, but as a beer, it fails in several respects.

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.
