Super G Cream Ale – Longwood Brewery

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.
