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

Left Hand Good JuJu Ginger has a medium, off-white head, a mostly clear, orange-gold appearance, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of ginger and pale malt, and the taste is of pale malts, with ginger. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Good JuJu finishes crisp and highly drinkable.

12 oz bottle with a 15 Oct. 2016 BB date on the neck.

Look Clear orange-copper body with a small, short-lived head and minimal lacing..

Aroma: A nice mix of bready malts and ginger (of course).

Flavor mildly bitter; moderately strong ginger comes across as being of a good strength although it does dominated the malts.

Feel: Lighter side of medium with lightly prickly carbonation.

Overall: Like pale beers and ginger ale? .. does a ginger malt beverage sound appealing? If so, you're likely to like this. I did and found it quite refreshing on a warm day.

Pours a clear amber head a tall head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is mild ginger, lime, and crackery malt. The taste has bright ginger up front with some nice malts and a spicy aftertaste. Dry. Light, somewhat watery feel. This is a interesting beer, tastes and feels a lot like ginger ale. Very drinkable, but nothing here makes me want to come back.
