COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

davidm (2057) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Great sweet beer. Aromas of ginger, burnt caramel, and some alcohol. Taste is sweet, with a touch of sourness, and bitter notes; it lasts long. Palate is creamy, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy white head.

Mjollnir (395) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2010
330mL bottle, labelled "Real Ginger Brew". Pours hazy golden brown with suspended sediment, a lot of bubbles, a small persistent off white head and some mottled lacing. The aroma is subdued, caramel, dark fruit and some ginger. The ginger comes forward in the flavour, with medium sweetness and low-medium bitterness while the alcohol is also noticeable. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, silky, and dry in the finish.

bmeup (631) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2010
Rich dark red/amber and minimal head. Aromas of sweet malt & ginger spice. Flavour is the same with a definate medicinal character. Seems to be out of balance to me. Mix it with something else maybe! Not my fav from Kiuchi.

(12oz bottle) Pours a cloud orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of ginger, horseblanket, citrus, and florals. Flavor of ginger, orange, caramel, brett, and florals.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 9, 2010
Copper color with lots of bubbles. Malty, hoppy, and faint sweet-spicy ginger aroma. I already love it. Then it goes sort of downhill from there. Sweet, strongly ginger flavor, with a slightly unpleasant hop bitterness at the end. Unique it is, but it’s too much like ginger beer to be a good ginger-flavored ale.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2010
Poured a dull amber brown body with a short head. Nose is a bit of ginger and sweet. Taste comes across a little woody, ginger again definitely, didn’t notice the alcohol. Enjoyed most of the Hitachino beers I have tried though this one didn’t do a lot for me.

larsga (7155) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2010
Biggish offwhite shiny head. Hazy red body. Strong harmonic gingery aroma with licorice and cough drop notes. Dry gingery herbal taste, quite light, but strong on the ginger. Light body. Faintly hot mouthfeel, presumably from the ginger. Dry peppery gingery aftertaste with herbal floral notes. Nice, and interesting, but a bit one-dimensional. More complexity would improve it dramatically. (0.33l bottle at Olympen.)

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2010
330ml bottle shared with KnutAlbert. Fine, lasting, white layer atop of a cloudy, amber-orange body. Fragile laceworks. Discreet aroma of ginger and malts. Much more prominent in flavour with its integrated sweet malt-ginger profile, offset by a subdued touch of fruity acidity. Long-lived, rounded aftertaste. Enjoyed in a friendly atmosphere with fellow ratebeerians at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo 19.03.2010.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a murky orange with off-white head. Aroma has a tart sensation to it with a little light earthiness and a bit of brett. Flavor of ginger, light grain, light malt, a hint of leather with a nice tartness at the end. Mouth feel is light body with a high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!
