3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Full review with photos and links to other reviews:
Appearance. This beer has a foamy but not frothy yellow-white head and does not leave much foam on the glass. This beer is hazy, which might be expected of an herb/spice beer, and has an amber or dark honey color.
Smell. Real Ginger Brew has a ginger aroma like that of ginger ale or ginger beer, which is a sweet smooth ginger smell. The bouquet is spicy with a bit of cloves and is enhanced by the ginger while accompanied by a light fruitiness.
Taste. The most pronounced taste of this beer is sweet malty ginger. Backing the ginger beer flavor is a sweet maltiness that is complemented with a touch of smooth hop bitterness. As you drink more of this brew the spiciness of the ginger builds but not so much that is it overpowering.
Mouthfee Real Ginger Brew is well carbonated, which adds to the comparison to ginger ale, and is a medium-light bodied beer.
Drinkability. This beer is strong in alcohol content and strong in ginger flavor. On one hand it is crisp and refreshing like a ginger ale but also like a ginger ale I rarely want more than one.

Too heavy a beer with not enough ginger. I wanted something reasonably light and refreshing with nice spiciness and mostly got the opposite. A disappointment given my general appreciation of this brewery. It was palatable at least.

I didn’t really like this. It has an almost roasted malt taste almost like what you would get with a mild stout followed by a sweetish ginger taste mid-palate. It is no doubt a unique and well-crafted beer it just does nothing for me.

330 ml bottle from Sobeys. Pours a viscous muddy orange with small persistent head. Aroma is of boreal leaf-litter, kumquats and vague floral hops. Taste very malty, nice but not aggressive ginger bite, guayaba/guava paste. Full bodied, slightly gritty, again like quava paste. A pleasant surprise. I usually walk past labels like this, thanks to wifey for bringing me one!

Pour is an orange-brown, cloudy, with a small white ring of head. smell is exactly a ginger cookie, it’s fucking bomb as fuck. Taste is a ginger cookie, caramel, and maybe some mild malt and oatmeal. Lasting bitter ginger essence. Nyce

Dark red and medium-bodied. Good ginger aroma and flavour, but without any bite. Apparently boiling the ginger makes it less spicy. Moderately sweet taste, with little bitterness. Overall, one of the best ginger beers I have had, but it would not hurt if they retained some of the bite.

Belle japonaise qui ne sent qu’un peu le gingembre. Belle robe rose orange quasi sans mousse. Une belle découverte !

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 Aus der Flasche getrunken (vom Händler des Vertrauens). Rotkupfern mit stabilem Schaum. Sofort steigt Ingwergeruch in die Nase. Im Geschmack interessante Kombination aus Ingwer und Hopfenfruchtigkeit. Leider kommt später Lakritzegeschmack hinzu.
