192/1777) The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Oak Aged Drunkin Pumpkin Munich by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  **1/2;  a cask take on their seasonal Munich brewed with spiced rum and oak chips;  there is a good deal of sweetness from the oak along with mild pumpkin and spice;  it works, which I was not expecting;

193/1778) The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Salted Maple Munich by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  *1/2; brewed with sea salt;  this was cask B of tonight's cask challenge;  given the saturation of our populace with sodium, I continue to be puzzled at how adding salt to everything ever from chocolate to caramel to beer became fashionable;  opens salty with a pumpkin and spice finish and mild maple throughout;

194/1779) Home:  Ginger Wolf by Beau's All Natural Brewing of Ontario:  *1/2;  from Beau's Oktoberfest assortment;  a 6.5% Ginger Hopfenweisse, Wild Oats series no. 67;  brewed with wheat and barley malts and ginger (all organic);   fresh ginger root nose;  the ginger is not so present in the flavours which are herbal and minerally;  very dry, bitter after taste;

This pretty accurately crystallizes my feelings about brewing with ginger:
