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.

It's cloudy light gold with a white head. I detect some apple and some spices. The taste is fairly sweet and it's very easy to drink. This is a good beer.

Pours a very light amber. Almost the color of ginger ale. Head is white but short lived. Lots of lasting lace.
I don't get much of an aroma. Faint spice and thats about all.
Quite a creamy mouth feel.
This is a good one folks. Lots of flavors. Banana right up front with a hint of citrus and spices. It has a nice tingle to it that I find very refreshing. This is a must try.

Beer Quote of the day

If you ever reach total enlightenment while drinking beer, I bet it makes beer shoot out your nose.

— Deep Thought
