Pale ale brewed with Amarillo and Mosaic hops, French Saison yeast “and a little fresh ginger”. Bottle-conditioned so beware yeast in the bottle.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/04/2016

Appearance

(02/Oct/16) Cloudy, sandy amber with a retentive ivory white head leaving moderate lacing.

Aroma

Crystallised ginger, yeasty brown bread and lightly floral.

Taste

Mellow root ginger, light citrus and floral hops over attractive bready malt, garnished with an enlivening peppery spice.

Aftertaste

Fades with mild ginger and brown bread. Lingering lightly bitter hops and mild black pepper spice.

Overall

“Brewed with ginger” is very different to “ginger flavoured” and while ginger is present its presence is in balance with bready malt, mildly floral hops and saison yeast spice. Share a bottle – a little of this is fantastic but it’s not sessionable.
