From Nanaimo’s Longwood Brewery comes their new limited release “Super G Cream Ale” a beer brewed with Ginseng and Ginger. The beer pours a copper colour with a tan head. The aroma consists of malts, caramel, ginger and a sweet finish. The flavour is of earth, caramel, malts, ginger snap cookies, ginseng, spices, sweetness and a mildly medicinal finish. The beer comes in at an alcohol content of 6%. I quite enjoyed this release from Longwood and is probably my second favourite of their releases I have tried.
Commercial Description: Generous amounts of ginseng give this velvety cream ale its virility and wood like character. Fresh ginger teases your senses with a quiet spiciness in this arousing ale.
