Pours a clear golden straw color with honey highlights. The head is off-white and a bit sudsy; settles into a light cap.

The aroma is of the peppery ginger. Very ginger ale like. The beer has a sugary aroma, very much like a soda. A bit too sweet.

The taste is of a light barely there malt. The ginger pretty much dominates the taste profile. Ginger ale type ginger flavor, quite peppery. Not overly sweet which is nice. There is an earthy hop bitterness in the end.

The feel is light to moderate with fizzy carbonation. The carbonation burns a touch. Nice ginger brightness but balanced out by some hoppy bitterness. Good change of pace beer.

Definitely need to enjoy ginger to like this beer, as the beer is pretty much a ginger party. I find it refreshing and good palate cleanser. Not sure I would want more than two though.
