Left Hand Brewing Ginger Ale

The logo bizarrely reminds me of Lord of the Rings… This one was in this year’s Washington Post Beer Madness, and I had to try it. It’s beer, not ginger ale like Canada Dry.
Thick effervescent white head. Golden orange clear color.
My nose is recovering from the sniffles, so I can’t pick up as much as usual. Still, a bit fruity and a little bit of ginger in the aroma.
This pretty much tastes like what you would expect would happen if you stuck ginger ale into beer. So, take away the sweetness of the ginger ale, throw in some malty and hoppy beer flavor, and there you go. The first time I tried it, I didn’t noticed the ginger so much, but it’s definitely there, kind of a tart flavor.
Good crisp beer, fairly refreshing too.
