look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 25 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a pale gold color with a small white head. The aroma has a strong ginger presence. The taste of ginger is not paired well with the traditional ingredients.

Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is dry grain and a little ginger smell.
The taste is mild overall: watery at first, mild ginger, a touch of candy and finishes with a mild bitter flavor.
The texture is crisp.
As advertised, it's a mild beer with a little ginger.

Pours an effervescent honey color with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Stays effervescent throughout,
pretty good head retention & lacing (3.5)

S: Some vegtal notes up front mixing with ginger. Ginger & grassiness as this warms (3.0)

T: Follows the nose up front, some grassiness. Woody hop notes mix in with ginger & lemongrass
as this warms. Finishes a little dry, then grassiness, ginger & a little lemon & honey (3.25)

MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation up front. Thickens up a bit as this warms (3.5)

Drinks semi-okay, makes Left hand's offering look world class

Poured a very light golden with a thinner but pretty well sustained white head atop.Aromas of toasted cereal grain and a real sharp fresh ginger note,this is the real deal when it comes to ginger.Toasty with sharp ginger flavors,the ginger is pretty much in your face and if you're a fan then you will like it.I'am not a huge fan of ginger but this beer is what it says it is a ginger beer,not many come close to this beer.
