BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ardent Craft Ales
Virginia, United States | website

Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Honey Ginger is a deep gold-colored ale. The medium- to high-carbonation level enhances the fresh ginger in the aroma. The malt backbone supports the sweetness of the locally-sourced honey and the spiciness of the ginger. A strong, yet refreshing and deceptively smooth summer ale.

Great summer beer. Smooth and subtle. Not too much ginger, just a hint.

Dark orange, iridescent. Minimal head. Aroma is odd - the richness of honey but almost congress across as buttery. Ginger is not apparent. Flavor also has a hint of buttery thickness with no ginger. Not unpleasant but odd.

Black paper series bomber into a pint glass. Pours a orange brown with a red hue. Head dissipated quickly. Smells sweet like honey with a hint of ginger. Hops are present too but overly strong. Taste is light, fragrant and sweet. Interesting beer. Could swallow a few of these but not really my style. Not bitter at all but had a hop presence. Good solid beer that's unique.

As soon as you lift the glass your nose hit with a huge amount of ginger. If you like ginger--and I like it a lot--the aroma is amazing. You get a lot of ginger zing on the palate, along with some residual sweetness from the honey. At nearly 8%, this would be great as a dessert beer.
