I had a pint of this as the imperial version at Shorts in Bellaire. Pronounced ginger taste, well balanced with the malts. I really look forward to this coming out in bottles each year. Most ginger brews are too subtle in the ginger taste for these old taste buds and I find this one A-OK.

A: Copper hue w/ a slim cream colored head

S: Ginger for sure, it also carries a mild sweet aroma

T: Sweet backbone accentuated by the ginger, spicy undertone helps round it out.

M: Not too heavy, fits well w/ the taste profile

O: A very fun beer, glad it was a sampler, whole beer might be tough, but it is very good. Perfect for sharing
