Might have gotten a bad bottle but.....

Copper colored.

Smells heavily of ginger as to be expected.

The taste of ginger is so strong that I couldn't really enjoy it. The sweetness was overpowered by something in between floral and sour.

S: wet, mild hop presence, gingery, strong pear
A: water, weak head retention, almost no head really, looks like apple juice
T: Spice blends nicely with the grain in the beer, very sweet, presence of honey in a good way, definite ginger as the label suggests, this is a very interesting beer, taste a bit of rice, it might be the grain used not sure. needs a session variety with a toned back honey profile, it would make a great everyday beer
M: silky, cold,sharp and crisp
O: Quite good, could benefit from a tad more of the citrus presence in the beer to balance it out. it is very interesting and different, definitely worth a try

Served at room temp, it's a clear copper colour with a 2 finger head of foam.

Ginger and honey in the nose. There's another spice here, I reckon it's nutmeg. Nice aromas going on.

Ginger first, honey sweet flavours second, nutmeg brings up the rear. Sight hop bitterness here but that isn't really needed for me to like this brew.

Smooth smooth mouthfeel. Very creamy. Oh and the foam is long lasting and there's awesome lacing.

In plain words, this is very good.
