2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 No hop aroma just mild banana notes. Extremely clear with a golden to light amber hue. Adequately carbonated with a surprisingly thick mouthfeel for the style. Malty flavor predominates with a ginger zing detectable only at the dry finish.

There’s just not enough ginger to make this into anything. What i tried was a bland standard ale with a slight hint of gingerbread at the end. Could possibly have something to do with the age, it might be better fresh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is fairly mild, with spicy ginger notes. Pours a pale golden with a hint of amber. Thin white head with poor retention. Flavor is bright and fresh with a lingering spice of ginger root. Body is light with a sharp texture and a long finish. Overall not a bad representation of the style.

22. Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a loose and sudsy whitish head. Lots of eggy lace. Pleasant ginger and caramel nose, like a somewhat subdued candy bar of ginger and caramel. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and ginger in relative balance on the mid palate, joined unfortunately by some stinky feet. Mix of caramel, ginger, and feet on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp, crystal clear golden coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of ginger (surprise), malt, alcohol, caramel and a hint of earth and floral notes. Light-bodied; Sharp ginger flavour with a hint of malt, some light sugars and an overly spicey finish showing some warmer notes. Aftertaste shows the ginger front and centre, some malt, some earth and a little sugar - not much else. Fairly one dimensional and spicey. Overall, not a bad beer, but not great...but it’s labeled perfectly: Ginger Beer. Period. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 05-May-2012 for US$4.49 sampled at home in Washington on 04-October-2012.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a light amber with a moderate head. And it’s exactly what it says it is - a ginger beer. The ginger comes off in both aroma and taste. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people who really dislikes ginger as a flavor on its own. So, bleh. Me no likey.
