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.

Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2014
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes of ginger and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, over ripe fruits, malt, and ginger, leading to a dry spicy finish. A clone between a Barley Wine and a ginger ale - odd.

oh6gdx (25451) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Bottled@SBWF2011. Hazy amber colour with a small wite head. Aroma is quite much sweet malts with quite strong ginger kicking in along with some other spices as well. Flavour is really big on the ginger, only letting some other slight spicyness and mild hoppyness through. Yet quite balanced and pleasant.

madmitch76 (22309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
3rd November 2008. Cloudy brown beer. Sweet aromatic ginger dominates all aspects of this beer but there is only a touch of ginger burn at the finish. Goes down easy and refreshes the palate with it distinct but light taste.

Bottle courtesy of Swingbridge during their grand re-opening - thanks! Not much ginger, quite a bit different than other ginger beers I’ve had. Unimpressive.
