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.

Bottle. Poured a pretty unappeasing muddy water brown. Great aroma of ginger, sweet malt and a slight bitterness. Aroma doesnít carry to much into the flavor, the ginger is there but its not really in the fore front. Its good, but I would have liked a little more ginger. (Disclaimer - I was eating sushi with pickled ginger while drinking this, so the ginger in the beer may have been subdued b/c of what I was eating, but this still was a very solid beer)

This is the 2nd ginger beer that Iíve tried. They are really growing on me. Tried this one from a bottle that was included in a Beer from Around the World Sample box. Itís appearance was of a cloudy gingerale with moderate carbonation. Flavor was sweet with a dry aftertaste. Very tasty. Iíd drink this one again.

The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy reddish amber colored beverage with a small, off-white smooth head that was almost entirely diminishing. The aroma had a light ginger sweetness accompanied by a lightly malt fruitiness. The body was medium with lively carbonation and a slightly sharp texture. The flavor starts off slightly sweet and spicy. The finish is medium length and brings out more bitterness toward the end.

Turbid orange in color w/ a head of small to medium bubbles that leave behind the occasional splotch of lace. The nose is tangerine sweetness and a bit of pair along w/ a twinge of pine--all of which I will attribute to ginger. The flavor mostly follows w/ a pleasant tartness, mostly dry w/ a twinge of vegetable bitterness in the finish (again the ginger). Mouth feel is light and forcefully carbonated but still it comes across neither watery nor thin--very Belgian in this respect. Iím a sucker for ginger so I rather like this though for those whom the novelty of a ginger flavored beer means less, it might not be as appealing.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Bottle from Knightly Spirits Orlando. <P> Body is a murky orange tinted brown with a fluffy white, diminishing thumb thick head. <P> Aroma is chinese baby corn, white fruit and a suggestion of canned pineaple, but it smells artificial and forced. <P> Fore is spicy ginger, sweet malt, something approaching cinnamon and fruit. The finish is medicinal and gerbal and very unsatisfying. I just canít drink this.

POurs a nice hazy brown. Aroma is sweet and malty, slight spice. Flavor is initially fruity, then spicy (though nothing screams "ginger"), followed by a nice grassy finish. Very subdued and quaffable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 15, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. Hazy orange brown color with bubbly tan head. Smells of dried fruit (fig and cherry), a dash of light malty brown sugar, and alcohol. I never would have known that it had been brewed with ginger. Very malty, fruity flavor with a sweet finish. Was hoping for more ginger.

one of the better spice/herb/veg beers. the ginger is just the right amount sexy malted, almost like eating that crystalized ginger without the bite, drinkable

Pours deep copper color with thin white head. Aroma spices, pineapples, some hops. Taste is mildly spicy, some cane sugar-like flavors, some bitterness. Clean finish. Ginger not overpowering.
