from 12 oz bottle

A- pour a mostly clear light amber color with very little head and a small white collar

S- ginger and malt with spice

T- was ginger first with malt and spice a little baked bread

M- was thin with low carbonation a little watery

O- spice and ginger lead this brew in a watery way its just average and uneventful low ABV makes it drinkable but not much going on here

Bought a variety pack last year. Had a bottle of this in my beer fridge stashed away. Bottled on date read 4/18/11. Popped the top and poured into a standard pint glass for review.

A: Pours a hazy copper with light amber tints. Not sure if the haze is from yeast or sediment or something else. Had a nice white head that eventually fades into a thin lacing.

S: Aroma screams ginger through and through. Some underlying malt sweetness but the ginger takes the cake here.

T: Again a strong ginger presence. Reminds me of making a pumpkin pie and sniffing the ginger spice right before adding it in with the rest of the ingredients. The ginger either lends or melds with a floral presence in the beer. Perhaps this is due to hop character or some other unknown. A very interesting taste - it's sort of like ginger tea in beer form.

M: Feels light & dry with an assertive hop bitterness at the tail end. Low alcohol makes this somewhat easy drinking if you can tolerate the ginger presence.

O: It's an interesting take on a spice beer. I don't mind it, but I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of ginger. With that being said, it's a well made beer that is mostly either love it or hate it. With me, I'm a bit in between. Then again, there's probably a reason this one sat in my fridge for close to a year.

very interesting brew, made with potent fresh ginger in high quantities. pours a clearish golden color with the slightest copper hue and an average thin white head. smells like fresh ginger, like a canada dry ginger ale softdrink. no hops to speak of here, just a sugary syrupy ginger essence. flavor is definitely featuring the ginger, but there are some pale malts in there to give some body, and a gentle hopping that combines with the ginger for a crisp refreshing finish. this isnt my favorte lefthand beer, but because of its bright carbonation and refreshing flavor, it would make a nice summer afternoon session. i also like it better than any other ginger beers ive had.

Pours an apricot/orange color. It's just cloudy enough that it's not clear. There is no head to speak of, the bubbles seemingly dissipating as they're poured.

Has a unique smell. The ginger is faint, with some hay and candied sugar.

The taste is unique as well, and not necessarily for the best. I wouldn't have guessed ginger, tastes like carrots and tomatoes.

It's a lighter bodied beer with little alcohol. There's no sweetness and only moderate spiciness. There's a slight tart bitterness in the finish that lingers.

Too strange for me. Maybe after I finish all of the six pack I'll have developed a taste for it, but not so far.

Pours a hazed gold, lots of bubbles, prickly white head, gone quickly. Scent brings fresh ground ginger root and citrus rind, little touch of acidity hinted at, but little malt. Taste brings strong, fresh ground ginger root, mildly refreshing, touching on harsh, adequate citrus and lightly sweet malts, splash of acidity. Lighter side of medium bodied, very bubbly. Alright brew, not as refreshing as I would have hoped from the style.
