look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
This beer pours a pretty brown color that almost turns to amber when held up in the light. There is virtually no head when poured. The smell is mostly malty, but there is a special addition of ginger that forces its way through and is very inviting. The taste is great. It tastes a lot like normal Ginger Beers on the market (Reed's is the most popular), but the slight addition of malt tones down the ginger and couples to form a really interesting mixture. There is very little carbonation, so the mouthfeel reminds me of a generic malt beverage. The lingering taste is thick, and sits on the back of the tongue with a pungent ginger kick that begs for anther sip. A very special beer.

(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
