3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes exactly like motelpogo's ginger Old that he made last year - i.e. pretty tame dark ale with heaps of fresh zingy ginger. Nothing complex about it, just straightforward, honest and tasty.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A dark nutbrown beer with no head. The aroma is a powerful ginger with some sweetness. The flavor is also totally dominated by the ginger combined with some sweetness. Not my type of beer - I've tried ginger beers better than this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small head on such a big flavoured beer. Spicey aroma, dark body, roasted malt flavours, bitter finish. Must try it again when more sober to appreciate it better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark body with decent (albiet thin) head - although suffers slightly from looking a bit like coke. Nice, malty Enlgish-style aroma with just a hint of ginger. Big ginger flavours once the inital roasty bitterness has subsided followed by some spicey notes. This beer feels very good in the mouth and tickles evey tastebud - good lingering bitters. A very nice beer but also very hard to rate because it’s just so different. Worth a try for sure.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Definite ginger and spice flavours. Rather odd ale, pours with next to no head. Very dark with a lasting bitterness on the roof of your mouth.

As soon as I opened this beer I knew it was different. The smell got me right away. It was ginger. I happen to like ginger so this beer went down well with me. Nice spicy flavor that is very different but at times it can me too much.

Perfumes of dark forest just after midnight collected by my friend elf of Tangwood. Slight move of a wind blows away that aroma so please be careful. Herbal was the word of the today in my house. Mystic or just boastful? Decide for your self, I shall stand on the side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours clear dark brown, off white head. big aroma of ginger and spice. dark malty, orangy, ginger flavour. I’m not a lover of big ginger flavours in beer, but I can see how people would like this, and I can also see how this would be nice paired with the right food. not my bag, but still good.
