Might have gotten a bad bottle but.....

Copper colored.

Smells heavily of ginger as to be expected.

The taste of ginger is so strong that I couldn't really enjoy it. The sweetness was overpowered by something in between floral and sour.

S: wet, mild hop presence, gingery, strong pear
A: water, weak head retention, almost no head really, looks like apple juice
T: Spice blends nicely with the grain in the beer, very sweet, presence of honey in a good way, definite ginger as the label suggests, this is a very interesting beer, taste a bit of rice, it might be the grain used not sure. needs a session variety with a toned back honey profile, it would make a great everyday beer
M: silky, cold,sharp and crisp
O: Quite good, could benefit from a tad more of the citrus presence in the beer to balance it out. it is very interesting and different, definitely worth a try
