Draft at Ballast Point. Clear copper amber color with a lasting white head. Big ginger aroma with citrus hops. Flavor is heavy ginger, sweet malt, caramel, citrus hops on the finish with mild bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Good but I prefer the non-ginger version. Just like people. Gingers are creepy as hell (#noracist #forreelztheydonthavesoulstho).

OldGrowth (2982) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet. Ginger and grapefruit clean light brownish orange, ok head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel bitter finish. It’s nice. Like how I get occasional strong ginger scents in the aroma, but not constant. Fun spin on the big eye

Dark orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some ginger notes as well as some orange citrus. The flavor is too heavy on the ginger for my liking. There is also a bit of orange, pine and toffee in the flavor, but the ginger overshadows everything else. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours deep gold into a tumbler. White head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Ginger and spice aromas. Thick with sweet and hot ginger upfront turning to resin in the lasting hot finish.

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Draft @ The Stein & Vine. Cuivrée, col crémeux beige. Arôme au bouquet bien agréable de gingembre ajoutant un bouquet épicé modéré, rétro fruité houblonné prenant. Malt prend plus une place de retrait. Palais met bien en avant le gingembre, houblonné avec une pointe épicée. Malt pâle et caramel avec un fini rappelant un canard à l’orange et rétro houblonné C tropical. Note pas spécialement le profil d’un thé, mais le gingembre qui peu être si versatile dans son usage reste ici fort plaisant.

ctipping (364) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2015
On tap at Lord Hobo. Served in a pint glass. Amber body. Nice lacing. Perfumy aroma. Ginger and grapefruit. Tastes similar, as ginger dominates. Grapefruit hop bitterness and a caramel malt sweetness. Medium heavy. Sluggish and dominated by ginger.

burg326 (4809) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Poured a coperish color with aromas of ginger, fresh cut ginger, and mild malt. Flavors were lit malt a touch of hops and ginger. Decent but ginger dominates the flavor profile.

SinH4 (1227) - Garching, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2015
Taster at the brewery. Copper color with small white ring. Fresh ginger nose. Taste is gingery, a bit malty, but the ginger dominates. A strong punch. Herbal finish. Very intense. Not 100% my cup of tea.

Smells absolutely fantastic. this is honestly the first re-drinkable ginger beer that I’ve had. Some hops from the IPA but a definite ginger flavor
