Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Keg at OB Noodle House, Cable St OB, 13/11/14 as ’ginger’. Rich amber with reddish hues topped with a moderate off white to light beige covering. Nose is candied fruit peels, big root ginger, brown sugar, perfumed notes. Taste comprises floral hop, ginger, spice, caramel, bitter orange, red grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with prominent ginger notes tempered with hop bitterness. Not bad for a gingerfied beer.

"More ginger than hops in the aroma. Fresh smelling fo sho. Prickly on the palate with the hops battling for attention at the back end. Nicely done, though if you’re not a fan of ginger (why are you drinking this then?) it would be a little much. Hoppy yet palate cleansing at the same time. Nice."

rlgk (11442) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2014
Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove, San Diego. Clear golden beer with a rich white head. Ginger aroma, caramel, fruity, biscuits, grapes, some mango. Ginger and hop flavor, caramel, quite spicy, grapefruit, some floral notes. Way behind the original Big Eye, but still decent.

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours orange copper with a short beige head and a mild ginger aroma. There is a lot of ginger in addition to the caramel malt flavor and a very dry finish.

Vaiz (3555) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2013
Taster @ the brewer. Clear golden pour. Aroma full of ginger, some spicy hops. Flavor is bitter and spicy with loads of ginger. Still well balanced.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2013
On draught at Home Brew Mart. Pours a deep copper/amber color with an eggshell head. Aroma is ginger and citrus. A little spice bite. Good, but not exactly what I had hoped for.

Ktwse (2213) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2013
On cask. Pours clear slightly reddish amber with low off-white head. Aroma of ginger, citrus, tropical fruit, and vanilla which clashes with the ginger. Taste is huge on ginger and vanilla which again clashes. Lingering bitter finish. Medium creamy body with absolutely no carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Ulysses NYC. Cloudy yellow color. Foamy, extremely bitter and hoppy with a slightly boozy taste. Not bad. A nice sipper ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
