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.

Poured a clear reddish brown with a small, disappearing frothy tan head. Aroma of strong ginger. Slightly weak body, flavour of understated ginger and a mildly dry finish.

Gurthnar (2374) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Aroma lots and lots of caramel, fruity hops. Almost clear amber colour. Taste is very sweet, lots of caramel, strength showing, dried fruits, malty all the way. Hardly drinkable, cloying. Good, yet not so good.

Not too heavy on the ginger flavor up front, but it arises on a long finish with a slight burn. Has a unique brown sugar bread aroma and dark amber brown color.

330ml bottle from Liquors Hasegawa in Tokyo. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Amber brown color with a modest off-white head. Tiny bubbles are lively on palate. Bready aroma with ginger spice evident. Malty flavor with strong ginger taste present.

12oz bottle. Not a huge fan of most ginger beers but this one was better than expected. Still though, nothing to get overly excited about.

Dark amber color. Thin foam. Strong boozy taste with burnt ginger aftertaste. It gets more pleasant after few sips.

Decent ginger ale. Love that theres no hint of artificial ginger. Quite subtle ginger on nose, same in taste. Some more spices, cinnamon, decent malty background, light citrusy hops. Quite sweet thou not oversweetened Not my style beer, but was interesting exp. Liked.
