We love Beer. We love Ginger Beer. So weíve cunningly combined them in Grizzly Beer, a new experience in brewing. Weíve dialled back the hops, reducing the bitterness to allow the ginger to shine through. A truly unique beer for lovers of truly unique beers. You know who you are.

Ginger on the nose and honestly the best part of this beer. Colour is a clean amber with ginger tinge. Bit insipid on the palate and without the ginger infusion not much to look at.

330ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Bit of a harsh finish, almost makes you think that there us chilli in the beer. Sold amber colour with a tidy white head.

Pale straw colour with thin white head that disappated quickly. Sweet lemonade, spritzy aroma.Ginger flavour with ugly mouthfeel. Lucky I was on holiday and it was cheap

Pale yellow colour, some white head showing and a big nostril full of ginger, real ginger at that - ginger root rather than powder. Full cabonation and then a flush of sweetish ginger beer flavour. I can see the spot this holds in the drinkscape as a cool, summer quencher and on that basis Iíll be finishing the bottle quite happily. However ,not an earth shattering beer experience. It has its charms, but a little sweet for me.

Aroma is generic golden lager: malt, with the tiniest hint of ginger. The taste and palate arenít much better. A hint of ginger spiciness on top of a boring lager with a watery palate and non-existent finish. Having said that itís certainly refreshing and very drinkable if thatís what youíre going for.

Tap at Beervana 2011. Not quite sure how to rate a ginger beer besides saying it has notes of ginger.....Thatís all I got. After a shit load of beer all day this was pretty refreshing so thumbs up to that
