Brewer Patriot Collection – Traditional Ginger Honey Ale

12 oz bottle.
Absolutely delighted to get a chance to try this after my own bottle fell out of the DBF and smashed on to the floor at the tome the patriot four-pack was original released. Didn’t think I would ever see this again, but thanks to a recent trader, I got this bottle. Best Before October 2006 – err….almost three years late; never mind.
Pour is a bright, tangerine body with a healthy head and some sediment. Head fades to a thin film on the surface of the beer. It looks as though it has held up quite well over the years.
Nose and tastes have some yeasty, Saison like breadiness. The tastes reflect that and then in the end you get the hint of ginger. It lingers a bit in the aftertaste and it’s a nice change. Tasty brew even after all of this time. Some honey smooths out the finish as well.
I didn’t have this fresh so I have no idea how this compares to those bottles that were cosumed at the time it original came out, but for me it’s a nice brew even now.
