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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy amber color forming a medium solid and creamy head with good retention and only few lacings left in the glass. Nose is sweet, fruity and grassy. Strong caramelish nose. Grapefruit. Flowery hops. Light spicy notes. Taste is sweet and biscuity. Strong notes of caramel and roasted malts. Grapefruit. Grassy hops. Hints of ginger. Moderate but persistent bitterness. Full creamy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Persistent caramel in the aftertaste. Great drinkability. I was expecting more ginger but, at the same time, less quality. Proved me wrong. A winner.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
