Green Tea and Ginseng Ale

A very thick, slightly off-white head which reduces fairly quickly to a clumpy, rocky layer.
The colour of this ale is amber and quite cloudy. Looks full and heavy.
Aroma is a sweet sour smell, some caramel notes and a pickle like sourness.
The feel is very rich and creamy, full and satisfying like a good oatmeal stout feel.
The taste is quite sour at first hit. A sauerkraut type of sour, not unpleasant at all. There is a tannin bitterness toward the end of the taste, like you find in tea. I don't overtly taste any tea but the drying tannin feel reminds me of it.
There are some vanilla notes buried in there and a bit of citrus hoppiness. For me, this beers best point is the fullness of the mouthfeel. It feels like a meal, like a good rich stout.
The tastes blend together very nicely and add to the whole experience. I really can't say I taste the green tea, and I don't even know what ginseng is supposed to taste like, but I like the overall combination of flavours in this beer.

Niagara's Best Premium Logger Lager

Slightly cloudy, could be chill haze, a dark yellow and no head.
Aroma of faint citrus and not much else.
Feel is medium and slightly creamy.
Tastes of dough, earth, corn and hints of light citrus.
Not bad up until the finish which is muddy with a nasty and unpleasant bitterness and leaves a coat on the mouth.
Not very pleasant at all due to the finish.
I understand that the brewery is in the process of some changes with a brew pub just opening and I hope they will be putting out some different beers and maybe updating some of their old recipes like this one.
