durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2013
I generally canít really get down with beers featuring ginger, but I was pleased at how relatively subtle it was. Some earthy notes and some pepper, well balanced hop and malt action. Grass. Pours light clear orange. Fine, but nothing special.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Very hazy golden coloured body with an orange colour and a large soapy white head, about five centimetres tall. Aroma of ginger, alcohol, light malt, sugar, caramel and way more full ginger. Medium-bodied; Strong ginger flavour with some light malt and a touch of malt and sugar, but after that - fairly mild. Aftertaste shows a good sweetness and a lot of ginger spice - thatís about it, but not in a bad way. Overall, a good beer for the summer months and to show a lot of flavour related to spice and sugar. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from The Charleston Beer Exchange in Charelston, South Carolina on 20-April-2015 for US$2,16 sampled at home in Washington on 05-November-2015.

Can thanks to Craig. Appearance - golden with an oily texture and a fluffy head. Nose - ginger primarily. light pale malt. Taste - ginger biscuits with a green stalky note in the back. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a dry biscuity finish. Overall - this is good for a beer that is very much dominated by ginger, which I generally donít think is a good idea.

12 oz. can, consumed on 10-25-15. Lightly hazy pale bronze. Small to moderate amount of off-white to cream-colored head. Juicy aroma features scents of apricot, peach, and yellow apple. I get a touch of ginger tanginess upon multiple sniffs, but I donít think I would have identified it as ginger if not for the deScription. Dry, spicy taste. The ginger adds a zesty spiciness to the pale ale dryness, producing a significantly drier effect than surely would have been the case in the absence of the ginger. Lemon and orange peel flavors. Sharp juiciness: Both lemon juice and peach juice. Dry finish and aftertaste matches the primary flavor. Light to medium body. Frothy in the palate. Lively enough, but the lightness and frothiness makes the palate feel insubstantial. Interesting and memorable beer. It ďsuffersĒ from a mediocre appearance and palate. Iím glad I tried it, but itís more intriguing than it is good, although itís certainly not bad.

nimbleprop (6336) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2015
12oz can pours a murky orange with some frothy, white head. Nose is interesting, plenty of ginger, a real grainy note - like a buckwheat tea, some grass, some citrus pith. Flavor is harsh, dried citrus rind, heavily tannic with tea, ginger, a little faux lemon, some grass. Opened up and got a little less harsh.

Can poured a hazy gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of ginger, bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, ginger and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering ginger finish.

12 ounce can. Pours gold with a nice white head. Aroma of spice and fruit. Taste is ginger, fruit, caramel, and malt. Refreshing for sure.

12 oz can purchased at Wine & Cheese, If You Please? on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. 4 22 15 printed on the can. The pour is a slight haze golden yellow with a two inch loose white head. Splotches of lace left on the glass. The aroma is grain, earth malt and a bright ginger. The taste is orange citrus fruit, bright ginger and the cracker softly sweet malt. The palate light to medium bodied with active carbonation and ginger in the clean finish.

Decent herbal here. Pours golden into the glass with a huge head that retains well, diminishing to soapy ring lace. Lots of ginger to the nose, and dominates the flavor profile. The finish, again, is spiced with ginger. The palate is not cloying, with the light body and active mouthfeel providing a spicy, lingering dry pull. Short of refreshing, it is an interesting quencher. Almost like a traditional (non-alcoholic) ginger ale without the sugar. Neat for a rating, and makes for a decent conversation piece as an aperitif.
