BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ardent Craft Ales
Virginia, United States
ardentcraftales.com

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.

L: Had this beer on-tap at Capital Ale House - Midlothian, poured into a pint glass. Had a chocolate brown color and a thick, murky texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing.

S: A fair aroma of ginger, malt, honey, and some indeterminate spices.

T: Tasted of a decent amount of malt, a tiny bit of hops (mostly in the finish), a tinge of ginger (not as much as you'd expected), mild spices (pepper), and some honey. Kind of an unbalanced flavor. The advertised ginger isn't quite as prevalent as it should be, but overall the taste is OK.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is an uneven beer for the most part, but it has its bright points. Worth a look.

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.
