330ml bottle. Ginger, spicy, caramel aromas. Pours dark amber with nice tan head, some lacing. Medium body,average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is spicy, fresh ginger, malty, caramel. Ginger is well integrated, noticed but not saturating at all. Nice and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful rich amber color with slow fading head and persistent ring. Big ginger aromas, with some citrus and light caramel malt. Taste follows. Terrific with some sushi. Great food beer in the right pairing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into large wine glass. Odd colour, very hazy light brown. Very thin, very light brown head. Aroma isn’t that gingery - caramel, spice, some other notes I recognise from another kiuchi beer which was matured in sake barrels. Taste was actively unpleasant when very cold. On warming, became far more pleasant. Ginger began to show through, oddly tasted sweeter. Overall, nice beer.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Stovner( on order). Golden color, good foam. Aromas of ginger, malt & good fruitiness: medium intensity. Distinct ginger, but not completely overwhelming . Medium body & complexity. Ok balance. Enjoyable

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome brew. As Gingerly as it gets. A remarkable lasting aroma of spices, caramel and, of course, ginger. hazy brown, looks unfiltered almost. Thin but solid head, no lace. Lots of taste of ginger so a bit spicy in the first few sips but then it fades away gradually. By the end the ginger has gone and been replaced by some hoppy malty flavor, sane for the palate. I guess thats why this beer hasn?t better ratings.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark umber with a large khaki head. Smells mildly spicy with a hint of graininess. Taste is ginger spice and hints of caramel. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Hitachino Nest Real Ginger Brew finishes with a ginger dryness.

SBWF 2013. Hazy amber beer with a decent offwhite head. Malty ginger aroma, caramel, toffee notes, some fruits. Ginger flavor, hoppy, grassy, bready notes, citrus, some grapes, some herbal notes. Ginger is decently balanced and not overwhelming.
