Not hoppy like many lighter ales, but malty. The ginger in this beer is pronounced, but not at all overwhelming. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter, very light on the tongue. The ginger on the nose is really refreshing.

Pours dark yellow like a standard lager. Aroma is ginger and grain. Everything seems ok so far.

Ultimately, ginger dominates the flavor profile so hard that you end up questioning whether this is truly a beer. Its so spice rack/herbal that things like malt and hops are just afterthoughts. I literally couldn't drink this, which puts it in a very unique category.

Look I don't like ginger, maybe you do, but if you don't, then you won't like this, it brings the ginger and it brings it so hard that its pretty much all I can taste.

Tap at whole Foods Bedford
Deep golden bordering on amber. Huge ginger on the nose with some faint sweet bready caramel maltiness underneath. Very herbal and a bit distracting imho. Reminds me of a cough drop, not a fan.

The look: a nice tawny tan with some ascending bubbles. Sight aroma of ginger and hops. Hops are definitely not overpowering, and neither is the ginger. Poured into a pint with a quick dissolving head and not a lacing left behind, Not sure, but I may taste a bit of orange peel. . .or some citrusy notes. The feel initially coats the tongue a bit heavy, but fades and leaves some hoppy notes on the sides. Overall, I found this beer refreshing. Love the artwork!

Slightly less bad than bad panda, still overreliance on ginger
