2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can/bottle hybrid (Cottle?). A blonde coloured beer with a large whit head and reasonable lacing. The aroma is heavy on the ginger together with a little toilet cleaner which seems common in these ginger beers. The taste is like a reasonable golden ale with some subtle ginger notes. Quite thin but tasty.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aluminum bottle. Clear golden, thin white head & lace. Dominant ginger-ale aroma. Ginger flavor, mildly bitter with a sweetish aftertaste. Refreshing, could picture haviing an ice-cold one in the middle of the summer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Alumabottle. Lager aroma with a discernable ginger character. Clear gold in color with steady, pervasive visible carbonation. Large, white head that diminishes. Nice lace. Refreshing with a tasteful ginger flavor. Ginger fans, this brew is for you. The thing I like about this brew is that it is different. Without the ginger flavoring, this is another run of the mill, lager tasting brew. With it, it is a stand out. I could see this beer go swimmingly with some spicy chinese food, especially dishes prepared with ginger. The allumabottle is exceptionally attractive, from the copper upper half to the silver lower half and piercing fire engine red "J" in the middle of the bottle. I love the type font as well. I feel as though I made a discovery with this beer, being only the 3rd to rate it and given its considerable redeeming qualities. I found it at an LCBO in Thunder Bay, Ontario in July ’05.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy, pale golden with a small, white head. Distinct aroma of ginger. Body is rather light with a weak, underlying sweetness. Otherwise it’s ginger all over. Pretty dry but no real bitterness. Weird aluminum bottle. 240805

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Funny 33 cl aluminum bottle. Blonde, clear with white big bubbled head with excellent retention. Aroma is heavy with peppery ginger. The flavor is very dry and watery, dominated by ginger, and reminds me a lot of a soda po(o)p. Ends dry without bitterness. I do not like ginger in beers, but I appreciate when people try to do something different, which explains the high overall rating, even though I couldn’t finish it.

whoa...not a fan of this one. Carbonated ginger water. Who are they trying to impress with this? Yuck. Drain pour.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not too impressed. The oversweetness was not warranted because the ginger flavour was so mild. Thin, gassy body and barely palpable ginger aroma. Somewhat pleasant, but give me a Jamaican ginger beer with dark rum and it’ll kick this beer’s ass into the ground any day.

clear gold, lacey white head. aroma fo lemon, ginger and grain. I’m not a fan of ginger in beers and this one had an off fake ginger flavour and too much of it at that. hints of grainy malt with sweet ginger and club soda-like finish

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Light gold in would with a lasting thin white head. Aroma was of light ginger, lemon cookies and soap. The flavour mainly of ginger but was balanced with lemons. Slightly sweet coating mouthfeel, medium-light body, high carbonation. Finishes somewhat like carbonated water and flat ginger ale.
