yngwie (14854) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden, with a minimal white head. The aroma has lime and ginger, and I can’t find anything else, thus making it as interesting as a German radler. The flavor is mostly the same, with a little bitterness in the background. Medium to thin body. Sweetish, lime-like finish with a little ginger note. I can understand that someone want’s to brew something like this, but why on earth would a Norwegian importer go for this when there are at least 10000 other, more interesting beers available on bottle?

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle, pours a golen colour, with some carbonation and pillowy bubbly head. A strong ginger-ale aroma with spicy ginger. Very sweet and syrupy in the mouth and a harsh chemical finish. Pass me a Bundaberg please.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2007
330 ml bottle. Spritzy pale golden body, instantly dying white head. Artificial sweetener and ginger aroma. Taste is like a spiced alco-pop. Avoidable.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2007
330 ml bottle. Golden color, fast vanishing white head. It´s ginger and fake sweetness all the way, and I don´t like it.

Sigmund (5604) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2007
330 ml green bottle, as "Classic Gingers Beer / Piwo Imbirowe". Courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Original gravity 11.8%, ABV is 4.1%. Admixtures: E300 anti-oxidant, caramel E150c-colour, apple acid E296 acidity regulator. Contains barley malt, sugar and sweetening substances: glucose syrup, E950, E951. Contains a source of phenylalanine. In other words: not quite "Reinheitsgebot" .... Good grief! Crystal clear pale golden colour, with relatively big bubbles. Fizzy and foamy head that dies out completely after a while. Strong sweetish aroma of ginger, glucose syrup and disgusting chemical stuff. The flavour is also very sweet, but not really disgusting - it has a lot in common with the softdrink / mixer ginger "ale". There’s just a weak notion that the basis of this drink is actually a beer. People who really like "ginger ale" might like this beer too. I’ll pass, thank you.

convex (31) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JAN 2, 2007
Pours a bronze color with a quick disappearing head. heavy aroma of, you guessed it, ginger. Also quite a heavy aple aroma (it appears to be flavored with artificial apple, caramel, and some other stuff (as was mentioned in another review, the ingredients are full of "E" artifical stuff). Unfortunately as was mentioned, the thick syrupy feel is not helpful. Spicey ginger bites the tounge quite a bit and stays with you for a while. All in all, I suppose if you like alchopop and if you like ginger, then this is definitely for you.
