Left Hand Good Juju Ale

Left Hand Good Juju Ale Brewed with Ginger, Left Hand Brewing, Longmont, Colorado. Alc. 4.5% by Vol. A refreshing frivolity. Brewed on the banks of the mighty St. Vrain. A light ale brewed with ginger to create a spicy aroma and unique flavor.

Clear, amber/copper-y coloring, slim white head atop.

Aroma: big ol' ginger, with a side of lemon and orange.

In the mouth: Intense ginger flavor boards the palate at first gulp. Keeps it up with each new sip. Clean, with a light malt character, crisp and cracker-y. What this is more than anything else is a ginger delivery service. A nice, spicy twist, an occasional treat, but nothing I would really want to drink more than one of at a time. Just a taste, once in a while.
