3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Knightly Spirits Orlando.
Body is a murky orange tinted brown with a fluffy white, diminishing thumb thick head.
Aroma is chinese baby corn, white fruit and a suggestion of canned pineaple, but it smells artificial and forced.
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
