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.

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.

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Small creamy tan head. Hazy amber/brown body with quite a bit of sediments. Aroma is mostly malt, slightly sweet, but the ginger is also present. Herbs on the tongue. Citrus and wood. Some alcohol. Soy sauce.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2014
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.

lillmuffin (84) - Haugesund, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2014
Strong ginger aroma. Half dark amber golden color. Sweet ginger soda-ish taste. Clearly not for people who dislike the taste of Ginger.

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.

McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy amber-golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of perfume and flowers. Taste of sweet pickled ginger, ginger soda, flowers, rice and leaves. Finishes off like perfume with floral hints. Interesting brew.

rondphoto (2084) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 18, 2014
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium amber with an ivory head that drops to a cover, no lace. Very still. Taste is malt infused with ginger. That pretty much covers everything, as that moves smoothly right to the tail of the finish. It’s an agreeable brew, but lacks complexity. Plus, the ginger thing isn’t quite as satisfying as some English variations I’ve tried.

A real ginger aroma ,but the ale’s sweetness takes away the ginger in the flavour. A bit disappointing.
