I love anything with ginger but could not detect any ginger flavor. Metallic smell that affected the flavor. I'm fairly forgiving but this is a real disappointment. In order to get to my character minimum will add that it is a beautiful evening along the front range in Colorado.

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.
