leaparsons (8978) - Leicester, Leicestershire, - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange gold with a thin foam. Aromas are sandalwood with oak and low oranges. Floral with light spicy ginger. Some marmalade with hints of soap. Flavours are lemonade with pink grapefruit and woody notes. Herbal with hints of mint and a ginger, spicy burn finish. Decent.

spacecube (1426) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2015
330ml bottle, pours pale gold, small white lace. Ginger and lemon, floral notes and light malt. Body is light, texture is oily. Finish is mildly astringent and finishes dry. Nice enough, perhaps needs a bit more spice or hop flavour.

HogTownHarry (6322) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
September 6, 2014 - on handpull at (Craft Clerkenwell??). Clear and bright light gold, slightly oily-looking, lasting white head. Floral golden ale aroma, but unwelcome hints of paper and oil paint. Taste is all lemon and lemon grass - delicately floral and grassy in behind, not much alcohol - surprisingly nice (7+). Light body and astringency, decent cask carbonation, finishes quick and crisp, a dry lemony linger.

ForlornHope (220) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours orange-yellow in colour with a white head and a lot of effervescence. On the nose: slightly musty, lemony, earthy aroma with a slight ginger spicyness. Sweet to taste with a gentle bitterness. Flavours of fruit and spice, the ginger is nice and subtle. Ends dry and with a good, lemon tartness. Chilled on a warm day, a very pleasant and refreshing beer.

thmsboyd (143) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle BBE: 16.1.16. Well-chilled. Pours a cloudy pale amber with no head and floaters. Medium intensity aromas of honey, ginger, orange peel and earthiness. A little tart to begin, with a moderate sweetness following up. Flabby, lacking bitterness. Light-bodied, watery, insipid, fizzy, earthy ginger finish. It’s different, granted, but this is not an experiment to follow-up on.

niquillis (1932) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Cask at Moo Bar, Penrith. Pours amber with off white head. Ginger overload, harshly so. Bit of a face puller.

Bottle at home from hardknott online.
clear amber gold with spicey stem ginger aroma. Medium gingernut biscuit body, moderate carbonation, fruity. Decent enough but needs a bigger ginger punch.
