A dose of fresh ginger roots added to the brewkettle creates an intriguing mix of ginger, malt-sweetness , and citruslike aromas and flavors Hoppy dryness is very subdued with ginger-sweet-spicey notes dominating throughout to the very finish.

slowrunner77 (6084) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"from notes: Smells great, fresh cut ginger and other spices. subtle hops. Flavor nice as well, but the way too overcarbonated feel takes a touch off the flavor as well. Too bad, this would have been good. Maybe infected, who knows, but at $7, I likely won’t be trying again."

Aroma is primarily ginger. Appearance is a clear dark medium amber with a small 1/2 finger light tan head. Taste is a milky ginger muddiness with a slight bitter finish. Palate is average. Overall eh ... I’d not recommend it.

Clear orange, no foam. Spicy aroma, ginger indeed. Taste of pepper, some jalepino, ginger again. Lasting ginger aftertaste. (Houston 201408)

mmahut (1106) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber body with low head. Aroma has vegetable character, light spicy ginger notes, earthy. Taste has high ginger bitterness, long lasting, little bit unbalanced for my taste, too much vegetable flavor in there. Medium to high malty sweetness. Body is full, high carbonation.

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2014
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes of ginger and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, over ripe fruits, malt, and ginger, leading to a dry spicy finish. A clone between a Barley Wine and a ginger ale - odd.

Schnabelhund (69) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2014
Pours hazy amber-brown. The off-white head is pretty short-lived. The nose includes notes of ginger (duh), maltose, resin, pine, and caramel; the nose is nice overall, but I felt that the notes besides ginger were a little hard to distinguish at first, i.e. the nose is off balance with a bias towards ginger. But I guess it’s intentional. The mouthful opens with malty caramel goodness; the ginger is weaker on the palate than it was on the nose, but seems to complement the resiny, citric, and astringently bitter hops nicely on the mid-palate before the dry-bitter-earthy finish kicks in, leaving a warming glow from the alcohol and spiciness behind. The texture is nice and thick, accompanied by a rather lively carbonation with a soft feel to it. Worth a try.

Albertsen (76) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2014
Smell is great. Like ginger. Colour is powerfull and dark. Suprising taste. No sweetness but really, really nice bitterness. Citrus. Abrupt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
