look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: clear copper orange in color with a short 1/2" head that slowly breaks to a thick surface foam.

Smell: pleasant ginger and some malt sweetness is easy to detect.

Taste: ginger is the main flavor, but unlike others it is not overpowering and actually works with the other flavors. Some caramel, bits of orange citrus, and a soft bitterness rounds it out. Mildly refreshing.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp throughout. Medium bodied beer. Aftertaste is long but mild as the ginger lingers softly on the tongue.

Drinkability: I did not pair this with any food, but it would work well with asian food. Drinking in a standalone fashion as I was, one pint was good and two would be pushing it. A beer worthy of a try.
