I sampled this one at the Bruce Williams beer tasting at the Brickskeller in Washington, DC on Tuesday, March 11th, 2008. Bruce brought over a bunch of brews, all of which were cask conditioned. This was one of them.
I really wanted to like this one being that I'm on a big "ginger kick" lately. Bruce billed the Ginger Kyte as a low alcohol beer "like a soda, but for adults". All I tasted was nastiness.
It started out OK. The aroma was definitely that of ginger. It wasn't overbearing, it just wasn't that great. The appearance wasn't bad. It was clear, golden in color and had no head at all. The problem I had was with the mouthfeel and taste. First you are greeted by this medicinal flavor that really is gross. The worst part though was after you drank it. You were left with this harsh "brillo pad on the tongue" feeling that left my mouth burning for a few minutes. It really was yucky and for only 2% alcohol, it was hardly worth my time trying anymore. Someone missed their mark here with this one.
