2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rather anemic yellow beer with almost no head. Fresh ginger aroma, which is a plus, with a touch of vanilla. In mouth, almost like a mix of lemongrass and ginger, liek a thai extract. Thin to medium, Kawnmower quality.

Brown with mocha foam. Very ginger, some corridander. Thin tasting, one-dimensional. Strong carbonation and one must really want an infusion of ginger. Not too impressed with this microbrewery however they are trying different receipes. Thanks for sharing Radek.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 2008-10-15. Crisp yellow body with a small white head that fades. Prominent ginger in the aroma, light lemon backdrop? Flavour is sharp with a whole lot of ginger, light ginger ale undertones. Nice in its way but way too much ginger for my own tastes - though I suppose that is sort of the point of the beer! Very carbonated average bodied palate lends itself to comparisons of ginger ale or ginger beer. Leaves the mouth tingly. Yowza! 6+/3/6+/3/12- - 3.0 Bottle shared by GregClow

Gold clear with presentable white head. Refreshing look. Fresh gingery nose, not bad. Medium light bodied with true freshly cut ginger. Not to complex but true nether less. Simple. Peachy aftertaste.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (12oz). Via trade with mouton_noire - thanks M-C!. After the wretchedness that was their Montoise, I am frightened by this - I don’t even like ginger - but soldier on I must. Clear bubbly yellow with an average very fizzy white head. Aroma - well, ginger, cheap white wine, construction paper, glue ... sweet, cheap. The taste is not horrible - mostly just sweet ginger and cheap grainy malt. Sharply carbonated mouthfeel, ginger ale aftertaste - pass.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden-yellow with very little head. Draft at Vices & Versa. Bready pale malt and some ginger. The ginger flavour is not overwhelming as some other ginger beers I’ve had. Inappropriate soft carbonation. This beer would have benefited from some carbonation bite. Overall this is a rather boring and harmless beer… and that’s a compliment going to the El Lapino brewer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear bubbly pale yellow with a large lasting white head. Aroma: There’s lots of ginger and...not much else. Flavour’s of ginger, of course, but it’s overcarbonated and watery -- two sips and I’m already burping. It doesn’t taste bad but it also doesn’t bear any resemblance to beer.

[1788-20081015] 341mL bottle. Ginger and lemon lime cleaner aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with quick white bubbles. Super gingery carbonated soda flavour tastes like spice without being hot. Medium body is fairly bubbly. Seems really nicely made and well-balanced, but then I do like ginger.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle purchased in Montreal. The body is very pale yellow with a white head. The bubbles in the body move slowly. The aroma is sweet with ginger and some cooked carrot type character. There is also a little bit of medicinal smell. The taste has some fairly bright ginger with a little bit of black pepper spice. There is also a bitof apple sweetness. The body is thin with a soda water type taste.
