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.

Had at Fat Salmon in Philly. Pours an orange amber. Taste of malt and ginger. Not spectacular, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brianza_ale (179) - ITALY - MAY 14, 2015
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

echudy (45) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 25, 2015
Ok smell with a hint of ginger. Wanted it to taste more like ginger beer than it did. More cloudy than I remembered and didn't have as strong of a ginger flavor as I remembered

huineman (305) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 25, 2015
Honey amber body, thick tan head. High notes of ginger (but of course), toffee, caramel, honey, chocolate. Sizzling, a little pungent, full-bodied. Long finish with the right bitterness. Different and nice.

GuideDogSaint (727) - Xiamen, CHINA - APR 22, 2015
330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours clear golden brown with a thin white head. Aroma of ginger and malt. Taste has a hint of orange. Plenty of body. Sweet finish.

Frode (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2015
Bottle 33 cl.
Clear amber, off-white head. Light caramel malt, ginger and cinnamon. Sweet and spicy. First thought was that a 33 cl. should be split three ways, not two as we did. But it grows on you, and I ended up wanting more.

StueyD (1383) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
A copper orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong gingery aroma, then a fruity hoppiness comes through that leads into a light malty element. Dry mouthfeel. A zesty ginger led taste, the fruity hoppiness enhances the spiciness. Then a syrupy malt flavour comes through that tempers the zesty spiciness. The finish is ginger led and malty.

Fisler (155) - GERMANY - APR 8, 2015
Lustige Flasche, aber das hat die Brauerei ja fast immer :) Im Glas schonmal eine Schönheit, wunderbar dunkelrot. In der Nase tatsächlich Ingwer und Beeren, hm, fast Hustenbonbon. Setzt sich im Trunk fort, eine gewisse Schärfe, die im Abgang leicht zurückgeht, dann der Ingwer wieder und eine leichte Trockennote. Nicht der Burner, aber durchaus interessant, definitiv außer der Reihe. Würde mir aber schwer tun, das mit Essen zu kombinieren.

evergreen0199 (2287) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. An amber/orange coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Sweet, ginger aroma. Tastes similar, sweet, ginger, some caramel. Quite pleasant.
