3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
Opalescent amber appearance with a creamy tan head. Aroma of malt, honey, biscuit and of course the spicy ginger. The ginger is more powerful in the flavor but not too much. Sweet caramel with a spicy mouthfeel, some honey and fig. Well hidden 8% abv. Fine.

Bottle. Yeasty, sweet and doughy ale with just enough ginger to make it interesting without turning it into a novelty. Love ginger by the way!

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s. Thanks avrashi. Cloudy orange with floaties. Ginger, slightly spicy aroma. Ginger with bitter undertones taste, light body, sweetish finish. Not amazing.

Copper pour with big head. Aroma of caramel malts, fruity ginger oils. The taste is caramel malty, with a defined ginger component, and some slight yeasty hops and apricots.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty mediocre amber ale with very light ginger notes in the middle. The base beer is exceedingly boring with just some caramel sweet malts and little else.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not really any other ginger flavored beers like this. Ginger forefront and center, monolithic, like drinking Sam Adams and chewing on a ginger candy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown with two fingers of head. Yeasty, chocolate, toffee and some spices in nose.
In mouth it starts with little bit of ginger, some caramel, spices and some alcoholic warm in the end.
A really good beer for a cold winter day. A good surprise!

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks avrashi. Hazy golden-orange. Spicy aroma with ginger and caramel. Sweetish and spicy flavor with malt, caramel, ginger and a finish with stronger spiciness. Medium-bodied.

330 ml wide brown bottle bb2014-01, gift from Rune, thanks a lot!
Good light apricot-coloured head, diminishes to a nice carpet, on the hazy amber slightly red body, with micro-submarines.
Lots of herby scents, peaches, hops and malt, ginger, herbs, strawberry, spruce almighty.
Fruity taste, hops, roasted malt, barbecue oil, wood, meat.
Full bodied. Well balanced. Carbonation suits this beer well. Ends with much of the taste, with some bitter caramels too, and warmth.
This was really something more tasteful than all these gingers we can’t rate anyway because they are in fact limonades. Overall; approved and enjoyed.

In 33 ml bottle. Very low carbonation. Very good balance and nice ginger taste. Despite its 8% alcohol you don’t appreciate it. Good beer
