Captain Lawrence Ginger Man Ale
Captain Lawrence Ginger Man Ale in the tasting room at the brewery. This beer was brewed for The Ginger Man in New York City as the house beer, a bar that I enjoyed when I visited in the past. The beer pours an amber color with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma consists of ginger, white pepper, and caramel. The taste is slightly dry with pepper and ginger on the front end. Grass comes out as well on the finish with a slight caramel sweetness. The alcohol content is 5.75% ABV. I would compare this beer to a saison with a heavier body. More specifically, it seemed to taste like Saison du Buff with ginger added.
