UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 Great with spicy food. Traditional taste. Great aroma. Pale and bubbly. Not a unique flavor but well done.

Bottle, shared at the lake. Carsmrlized ginger; more malt (light caramel, cereal) than ginger, modestly sweet; more beer than ginger which I’d what appeals to me.

Extract tasting ginger. Only ginger. Not so drinkable. Slight orange coloured body.Thanks for the gift, Stephen. Thinnish mouthfeel.

Smells like ginger - hmm. I’m just going to think of this as the palate cleaner between sushi varieties and that’s it. Next! Bottle from Sammy at tasting.

650mL to lead lined tin stein Aroma is sour ginger. Appearance is a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Taste is a little bitter, but mostly ginger. It's light bodied and watery. I expected much more, but for me, this is a miss.

Had this guy a while back...not horrible but quite boring. Light or mild ginger in the nose with toasty malts. Fresh spices and a crisp bite of light ginger. Overall just quite monotone and boring.

Welcome back to above zero and Halloween. Kept the gourd out of this one. Pleasant ginger and malt scent. Moderate ginger taste and an enjoyable drinking experience.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Golden color. Light aroma of ginger. Light ginger flavor over a breadish Ale; ordinary bitterness, maybe a bit low.
Anonymous, the ginger doesn’t manage to provide a feeling of summer freshness.

On tap at the Granville Brewery tasting room. Colour is something of a light hazy yellow. Aroma and flavour of potent ginger. Certainly is what is advertised - not my thing though.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Single bottle purchased in a BC Liqour store in Chilliwack, BC on 08/20/2011. Colour: Didn’t see...drank out of the bottle...look light yellow. Nose: Very herbal - not just ginger. A smattering of marshmellow. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, light sour. Sweeter than expected. Ginger plays but not always at the forefront. Some vanilla and corn also contribute. Not as good as a couple of the gingers I have tried but by no means undrinkable.

joet (2188) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Cloudy, orange. Large bubbled white foam. Very carbonated. Thought this was infected due to its exuberant presentation but it’s very palatable with no off flavors. This is a perfect example of what a ginger beer should be. Spritzy, dry in feel, spicy, floral, herbal, tangy, some apparent sweetness. Very gingery. Some remaining acidic feel on the tongue, some bitterness, definitely ginger in the finish as well. Very well done.
