Juju Ginger

This one was a real disappointment for me.  I’m a big fan of beer (duh) and an even bigger fan of ginger.  So naturally I assumed that this brew from Left Hand Brewing Company would be a big win for me.

Wrong.  It was merely so-so.

The taste of the beer was pretty good. I thought it was similar to a Singha or some other Asian-stlye ale. I guess I just expected so much more.  I wanted a blast of ginger, similar to something that I would get in a ginger beer.  That’s what I wanted, even though I knew it wasn’t realistic.  Ginger infused beers just don’t taste like that.  I would have settled for an undertone of ginger, however.  Just a taste.  Something on either the front or back end of the beer.  Just a little something of ginger wafting over my palate.

Didn’t happen. 

It just didn’t bring the ginger flavor.  Nada.  And really disappointing considering that the word “ginger” is right in the name of the brew.  So as a beer…fine.  As a beer brewed with ginger…fail.

My rating: 4 out of 10.

  1. Wow! You got a wordpress blog round the same time I did. We must be psychically connected. Or is that psychotically connected? Very nice. Though I’ll probably never darken these here parts again. All beer tastes like piss to me. Good luck!

  2. AK – psychotically sounds right. 😉
