Shared a 12 oz bottle on 12/26/14.
A - translucent golden pour with large bubbles causing the head to quickly dissipate.
A - fresh ginger is all over the aroma. Doesn't have the sweet aroma of a ginger ale (soda) but is somewhat similar. It's almost as though the sugar of the soda was replaced with more ginger. Very interesting and surprisingly inviting.
T - the taste is also mostly fresh ginger. The malt and hops play supporting roles to the ginger. There is also a peppery aftertaste that provides a very dry finish.
F - the bubbles are a bit large here and make this feel more like a soda than a beer. Not a major problem, but not ideal for my liking.
O - this is another if those beers that I feel like falls into a catch-all category and is difficult to rate to the style. I personally like fresh ginger with my sushi and this beer takes that fresh flavor and bottles it. This would also be a very refreshing "just finished mowing the lawn" beer. I enjoyed this very much so the numbers are certainly based on personal preference more than beer judging guidelines.

Gold in color with excellent clarity. The small amount of white head dissipates quickly and only covers half of the top. Aroma is solely of ginger which is a bit simple. It tastes very briefly like a pilsner flavored with ginger. The mouth is initially watery and then you actually get a highly carbonated gentle warming in your throat. This is beer meets ginger ale with a little burn in the fade. Odd.

Highly spicy and overly sweet. Lacks the crisp finish I was desiring. Has a warm burning sensation on the lips and mouth tissues from the spices. Subtly is the key and this beer does not have it.
