Refreshing, balanced aromas of warm, baked vanilla shortbread pair with candied ginger, which smells as if it were freshly zested. The beer is a bright, clear, golden-amber color with a creamy, well-retained, off-white head.  The flavors evolve from biscuit to vanilla toffee with a hint of white oak, supported by dried ginger and a soft, floral, vanilla bean character. The flavors evolve pleasantly as the beer reaches room temperature, at which point the light bready and low, warming vanilla notes balance the twangy sensations from the ginger. Carbonation is moderate and assists in balancing the lingering heat from the alcohol. The mouthwatering finish keeps me coming back for more.
