Piwo bursztynowe, nieklarowne. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, lepi szkło. Aromat słodki, owoce kandyzowane, kwiaty, pewna nieoczywiśta ziołowość i oczywiście imbir. W smaku goryczka średnia, kwiatowość, ziołowość. Imbir w posmaku. Wysycenie średnie. Zaskakująco fajna wersja imbiru. Pijalne. Bardzo fajne.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dirty brown pour with no head. Ginger, malt, dirty aroma. Taste was sweet, malty, not much ginger until the end. Very messy flavours, the whole thing was a bit ordinary

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma has ginger, earthy and sweetness in it. Color is dark and amber. There is a bit too much sweetness in taste, ginger kind of disappears because of it. Full body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Overall drinkable but not my favorite. A little less sweetness and alcohol, and more hotness of ginger would be perfect.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Muddy brown color without foam. Malty and a little gingery note. The taste is lightly acidic, malty and gingery, but I wouldn’t call it especially pleasant. The aftertaste is okay.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, reddy bronze. Halo of white. Sweet, crystal malts. Bit of flora. Taste is syrupy sweet. Tingle of spice. Palate is thick, with more of the syrup. Finish is all of that. Ginger right on the close. Too claggy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straight from TOKYO :D 33cl in teku. Pours a medium, creamy and dense, light beige/orange head; nice amber to ruby colour, cloudy. Smells malty, with some sort of great "candied//sweet" ginger notes, but also very floral, nuts and some orange citrus too. That’s quite complex and very parfumed, remebers "Grand Marnier" notes for some aspects. Tastes japanese ginger (like the rose coloured one you eat with tradtional sushi), caramel malts, cane sugar, spices, candied zest; medium to high sweetness, small to medium bitterness. Nice and delicate carbonation, medium bodied, slick and slight sticky. Malty, citrusy, and with that very particular japanese ginger leaves aromas and notes. You can see it as a sort of amber ale + ginger and some spiced notes, doesn’t seem 8%. Smelly, tasty, and quite like anything I’ve ever tasted before
