22o bottle, thanks nimbleprop. Small white head atop clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, ginger, allspice, some lemon/orange. Taste is medium sweet, ginger. Fairly dry finish. Light-medium body, alcohol hardly noticeable. Definitely does what it sets out to do -- ginger beer.

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy to large white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate wheat, citrus hop and light ginger aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spicet & sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where just met.

22 ounce bottle courtesy of Butters. Thanks! Sampled at the 11th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 4/17/10. Pours a lemon yellow color with a a very light haziness. Medium head with good head retention and lacing. Aroma of ginger, citrus, kitchen cleaner and bread. The taste is candied ginger and citrus with just a faint medicinal quality. Medium bodied. Not too great.

2010-02-19. Lightly hazy golden yellow, small white head. Sweetish ginger aroma. Flavour is similar, pleasant ginger throughout, very light bitterness. Simple but pleasantly quaffable. Average palate. Bottle shared by someone I forgot to write down.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent effervescent golden with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet ginger and light caramel with a touch of bananas. Starts with decent fullness and light caramel and candied ginger sweetness with a touch of doughy yeast before a drier, smooth finish. A pretty decent brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the newly reopened Crew (well, it reopened a while back…need to get that updated). Pours a hazy gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Loaded with ginger, crisp and clean. Smells a bit like good ginger ale. Lightly sweet, medium bodied, little ginger. Finishes with a touch of wheat, sweet and crisp. Reminds me a bit of a shandy, but not too sweet.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale with a white head. Smells of pronounced ginger. Taste yields lots of ginger bitterness with a touch of wheat. A good concept, but this one tastes too much like ginger ale and not enough like beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
February 19, 2010 tasting with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. My 22oz bottle. Hazy gold pour with an average, bog-standard white bottle head. Sharp aroma, fresh ginger and hand soap (??! - 6-). The taste is lovely - fresh ginger, a welcome dearth of Jergens - maybe a little sweet, but simple and refreshing. Average body, strong carbonation (aren’t all ginger beers big on the fizzy?), slightly sticky in the finish. Didn’t like the aroma much, but overall a solid ginger beer.
