Pours a golden straw with light, voluminous head--slow to dissolve. Carbonation evident. As noted on the bottle, you get ginger and cloves on the nose, but also with a grassy yeastiness, bitter orange peel, and alcohol. There is a hint of the macro sweetness there...oh dear... You can definitely taste the ginger, a tad of the bitter orange peel, and then it goes sweet, caramel and malts. The macro element was pushed at times, as was the bitterness, in my opinion. Nicely balanced mouthfeel, perhaps a tad too much carbonation for my taste. All in all, a decent beer. More of an "interesting" than a "solid" choice, though.
