22oz bottle
poured into a glass, it has a hazy gold color body with a very little head. The smell is ginger. The taste is up front ginger and some spiceyness from the ginger. I wish the pumpkin would come through more. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall if you like ginger, you will like this beer. It is a good pilsner.

If you don't like ginger don't drink this beer. If you do like ginger give it a shot and ignore the ginger haters giving this beer bad reviews. I wish the pumpkin flavor came through a little more strongly but all-in-all it was an enjoyable beer with a strong ginger flavor.

From 10/17/13 notes. Had on tap at Ginger Man in NYC, served in a tulip.

a - Pours a hazy golden orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spices, ginger, veggies, light pumkins, yams, and pepper. Not a fan of the nose at all...all spices and ginger to me.

t - Tastes of ginger, light pumkin, bread, spice, pepper, toasted malts, vegetables. Little more pumpkin here and little less spice, better than the nose, though still not great.

m - Medium body and low carbonation.

o - Overall I wasn't a big fan of this one at all. The ginger and spices dominate, and there isn't much else to it. Wouldn't seek it out again.

A - golden, with lovely head. Very good laces.
S- Gingery,malt, hops
T- overpowering ginger, no burn like ginger beer, but a dry, slightly bitter taste due to hops.
M- Ginger, ginger, ginger...light body, not much there
O- Disappointing...wonder if it might be better on a hot day as a thirst quencher, but i wouldn't buy another

Served in a 16 oz pilsner glass at Pourhouse, Westmont, NJ

A: pours a clear gold with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: tons of ginger on the nose with pumpkin and chai spice notes. There are some candy sugar aromas as well.

T: tons of ginger here as well with some chai and pumpkin spice-like flavors. There are some candy sugar flavors before a somewhat bitter finish.

M: light body with lowish carbonation, this beer is light and a ljttle watery.

O: simplistic and a bit overpowering on the ginger, but not a bad beer.
