This beer was bad news. All ginger, no beer; no balance. Drain-pour.

I like ginger. I like ginger a lot. But it's pretty much wasted here because there's nothing to complement it in this brew.

Pours a short head that immediately disappears leaving behindg a very ordinary looking clear apricot coloured liquid. Boring. Nose is clearly gingerous, but with not much else. Quite dry on the palate, bordering on dusty or metallic. Not much else happening in the glass. Taste is also one dimensional, just harsh ginger. Not really appetizing. Ginger works best when it's paired up with something else and those flavours work together. Nothing else here I'm afraid.

Meh. Part of a mixed six from Granville/Creemore. Just glad I didn't stick myself with a full six of this stuff. Done and gone.
