Probably not fair that I've never had a Moscow Mule to compare this to.
The ginger is very nice. Semi-sweet and not overpowering. LIme at first and then faded some. Fresh.
Brilliantly clear. Foamy white head. Some lacing as it settles.
Aroma is matched in the flavor, but there is more going on there. Malt shows (pale malt). A nice streak of heat. Spiciness too. Some from hops, maybe something else as well. Not sure.
Lighter body and drinks easily. Very easily

Thanks Eric.

Pours a clear lighter golden color. 1 finger white head. Retention is good.
The nose is lime smelling with a hint of ginger on the backside.
Taste lime, and ginger works well together. Those are the main flavors.
The body is pretty good, and the beer does linger in my throat.
Unique beer overall. I wouldn't have expected it to work, but it does.

Rowdy Uncle pours a golden color with a small long lasting head. Aroma is sweet and ginger. Flavor is strong lots of ginger, with a ginger burn, nice creamy base. Sweet residuals. Overall inquiries and tasty.

This beer is definitely rowdy! And it's got some kick. Smell is fruity with a distinct lime smell. Taste is initially very carbonated but then you get hit with the boom. The lime taste gives way to a ginger heat. Wowza. It's not the Ballast Point habanero heat (which is undrinkable) but its a pleasant heat that punches your pallet. If you like spicy foods then this beer is for you.

Update: never has a beer gone from tasting amazing to me on the first can and by the fourth I'm thinking what is this? Each time I've had this beer I enjoy it less. The ginger is just so damn overpowering. It's good but damn you better be ready for something strange.
