look: 2 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent honey color with rapidly falling cream colored head. Zero head retenrion & lacing

S: Ginger, not much else

T: Lemongrass, a little bit of white tea & some ginger up front. Strong ginger flavor, not harsh, but not much else, a little lemongrass bitterness as this warms, a little dryness too. Finishes refreshing with some ginger & a touch of citrus

MF: Light body, slight carbonation

Easy drinker, not a bad thrist quencher for a hot day

Golden yellow, very little head. Smells and tastes strongly like lemongrass. Hint of ginger hits the back of your throat. I wish the ginger was stronger to be honest but I'm a big fan of ginger. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this but I did enjoy it overall.

Pours a clear gold with a white head. Smells of ginger, lemongrass, and spices. Tastes of malt, ginger, sugar, lemongrass, and other sweet spices. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall this is a very flavorful and easy to drink beer.

12 oz bottle. golden yellow pour with minimal head. Lemongrass aroma and taste. Went well with a Thai curry dish and I would probably like it with Chinese cuisine as well.

From a bottle, this brew is nearly clear, golden in color, and has a one finger white head. The aroma is interesting...the lemongrass gives it both a citric and herbal note. Dominating aroma. The taste is a little bitter, with herbal, ginger, lemon peel, and grass. Somewhat light and crisp, but the lemongrass and spice notes are everywhere in this beer.
