On tap at World of Beer Coconut Creek, FL
A- Appears like a hazy brown ale with some light penetration. Head is ~1/4 and bubbly off white dissipates to ring of bubbles and leaves no lacing.
S- Mmmm gingery brew, ginger smell takes over hoppy citrus aromas. Not spicy, some malty sweetness in smell.
T- Very gingery but not overpowering (for my taste) malty undertones give a fullness to the taste with ginger acting as the spicy/pungent beer character.
M- on the thin side of a medium body. hazy body comes across smooth over the tongue while not tasting too dry w/ 7.0% ABV. carbonation stays thru the beer.
D- I could absolutely drink this beer all night, if you enjoy a hoppy beer this would be enjoyable because ginger adds spicy hop-esque kick

(bottle code RG.13.12 - poured into a tall Unibroue tulip)
A: tall, gooey-spongy foam to start... somewhat cloudy, dark caramel color - looks like liquified caramel in the process of cooling off dry...
S: browned, dry caramel overtone... old, candied ginger
T: heavy malt foundation, malty ginger beer, herbal bitterness in the finish... powdered ginger and grain-husky bitterness lingers... tiny hint of spicy alcohol
M: fatty-round... thinnish, chewy-gooey viscosity... booze enhances the notably dry finish
O: caramel-y malt and powdered ginger are core to the taste here... it appears that it could be a goopy mess, however, the flavors seem to have decent balance and it thankfully ends up surprisingly dry... if you dig malt and ginger anything, this is a good one
