Schnabelhund (65) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2014
Pours hazy amber-brown. The off-white head is pretty short-lived. The nose includes notes of ginger (duh), maltose, resin, pine, and caramel; the nose is nice overall, but I felt that the notes besides ginger were a little hard to distinguish at first, i.e. the nose is off balance with a bias towards ginger. But I guess it’s intentional. The mouthful opens with malty caramel goodness; the ginger is weaker on the palate than it was on the nose, but seems to complement the resiny, citric, and astringently bitter hops nicely on the mid-palate before the dry-bitter-earthy finish kicks in, leaving a warming glow from the alcohol and spiciness behind. The texture is nice and thick, accompanied by a rather lively carbonation with a soft feel to it. Worth a try.

Smell is great. Like ginger. Colour is powerfull and dark. Suprising taste. No sweetness but really, really nice bitterness. Citrus. Abrupt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Con fecha de cons pref para 02-2015. color cerezo con poca espuma beige, solo pequeña corona, aromas y sabores con predominio de jengibre no muy intenso, además de ciertos toques cítricos y maltosos ligeramente dulces.

Alpha10 (315) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
2014/07/04 - Pours a cloudy, burnt orange/amber colour with foamy, off white head thy quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is lots of ginger, mild caramel and light citrus notes. Taste is similar to nose; lots of ginger, sweet caramel malts and a hint of citrus fruit. Herbal ginger flavors nicely balance with the sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with fizzy carbonation and a mildly warming, herbal finish. Interesting brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Jungle Jims from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have ginger, pale malts, light caramel, spices, light citrus, hints of fruit. I am not the biggest fan of ginger so this isn’t for me.

spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
330ml bottle, pours amber with a small head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with lots of ginger. Palate is thick and resiny and ends sweet with ginger and a mild bitterness. The abv is well hidden. An unusual beer worth trying, but it’s not too complex with flavours, what flavours there are, are good.
