3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours caramel in colour with a thick delicious head that lasts long. Aroma of ginger hits straight away in a smooth subtile way, some licorice, lime and soy-sauce in the notes behind the ginger. Taste is a littlebit sweet in the beginning but is taken over by a good bitterness quickly, and has a dry ending. Really good and interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting one with a bit of that special something in. Some sweetish moments combined with spices and even that promoted ginger. Enjoyed that special bit of pepper in the back. Good one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle possibly packaged in Oct. 2013 (G.13.10 code on label)poured into shaker. Deep reddish-orange hue with a short-lived fizzy off-white head and lots of ginger pulp in suspension. Aromas of sweet malt, cereal and ginger. Sweet, bock-like flavor with a slightly spicy ginger finish. Warming quality, but this could either be from the ginger or the alcohol. This was good, but frankly I could’ve used some more ginger.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes like drinking gingernut cookies and very sweet on the palate, so much so that the sweetness from the ginger is a overbearing and dominant.
