A: The. Beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a faint amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderately strong aromas of ginger are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but also has some wheaty flavors.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little one-dimensional but is pretty nice if you like ginger.

Pours a clean straw color with a small head, decent lasting thin cap on top though with no pacing on the glass.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with a mild floral hop presence, not picking up much ginger on the nose.

Taste starts out with the malt backing and a light aspect of ginger, the ginger adds a clean fresh crispness to it, hops have a decent presence in the aftertaste, reminds me more of a Pils than a wheat ale though.

Poured into a weizen glass. Poured a very pale amber, with a thin bubbly 1 finger head. Small amount of cling to the head, but disappeared very fast. Handful of streams of carbonation rose from the bottom. Aroma was a bit bitter, mostly wheaty, but with some sharpness of ginger mixed in. As it rested, banana could be detected as well. Taste was wheaty, before shifting to a bit of ginger, then finishing as a grassy leafy flavor. Felt good in the mouth. Not overly carbonated, and a bit of stickiness so that it felt like it had substance. Overall not bad

This beer poured an orange/golden (brinze?) color with minimal head that did not linger.

Aroma - the aroma was mostly reminiscent of a wheat beer. Some floral notes and just a very weak hint of ginger. Some earthiness as well and a bit floral.

The taste is malt/wheat making an immediate impact.There is some light, fruity aspect to this beer and I couldn't put my finger on it - though apple or pear, then maybe very light citrus notes The ginger shows up late in the taste and is in no way overpowering or spicy, butt here is a decidedly earthy note as well. The ginger lingers well into the aftertaste. There's a sweetness that ties everything together.

The feel - I thought the beer was slightly under-carbonated but it was still bright and lively somehow. Light bodied.

Overall - a very nice beer to drink on a hot summer day. The ginger plays well, but there is that earthy note that was initially very strong yet faded after a few tastes. Nice beer.

Reviewed from notes over the weekend.

A- Poured into a pint glass with a hazy golden orange body. Big creamy white head with great retention. Tons of lace pillows.

S- Pale ale feel with some wheat, light caramel, apple and fresh cracked grain feel to it. Just a bit of ginger here.

T- Ginger forward for sure in the flavor. Nice wheat, light biscuit, cracked grain, apples and light fruits to support the ginger.

MF- Light bodied but creamy as the head might suggest and the wheat lends a feel like this. High carbonation good with the ginger flavor. Low bitterness.

A solid drinkable brew with a nice ginger forward flavor. Sort of like a pale ale wheat beer.
