COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ingredients: Water; Malted barley; Ginger root; Hops; Yeast.
Our beer is basically a pale ale brewed from a relative low gravity, with some of the hops which would normally be used in the beer replaced by freshly ground ginger root. The beer is light in body, lower in alcohol, has a distinct ginger aroma, and has a very crisp finish. It was initially brewed as a refreshing alternative to the plethora of wheat beers which are popular in the summertime. Popular demand turned it into a year round beer.

GINGER IS NOT AN BEERS ITSí THE NAME OF A RED CHICK AND SOME SODAS I DRANK. THIS BRUERY IS DUMBED IF THEY THINK THEY MADE THIS ANYTHING SIMILARS TO MY FAVORITE BEER(pLINY). IT SMELLS LIKE CANDIS AND IS NOT APPEARING TOO A BEER, MUCH LIKE PLINYS. THAT IS GOOD. I DONT THINK THAY USE ANY HOP, BECAUSE I KNOW ALL ABOUT HOP AND BITTERS AND INDIAN IPAS.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear rosy copper with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of ginger and white bread with a bit of lime. Light bodied. Light finish. Hmmm.

6 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a sniffer glass. Pours hazy with only a whisper of a head. Golden with mild carbonation. Nose is definitely ginger. Also a little earthy or dirt-y. Mouthfeel is moderate-on-creamy. Fairly dry and crisp overall. Taste is ginger, grass, lemon, and a bit of malts. A little bit of a ginger bite on the end. Fairly unobtrusive overall. A neat beer. Not too much on it?s own, but I think one could have a lot of fun pairing this with food.

jmohno (1196) - Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours a clear medium gold, light head. Aroma is spicey ginger. Planty vegetable character. Lemon. Refreshing/mood altering. Taste is a mild pale ale with some buiscuity bready character. Lemon, lemon tart finish. Pretty good, I think I use to like this a lot more, its still a good ginger beer. Some plantyness in the finish.

This was ok to try because of the ginger and all, especially if you like ginger soda or jamaican ginger beer...but it was nothing special for me. Pretty light on the alcohol content, so itís more of a "flavor" beer. Somewhat spicy from the ginger. A little hoppy like an american pale, but the balance was weighted a bit more on the sweet side. Pours a dark yellow-off orange color with a hint of red...sort of copper I guess. Not bad, but not great. Something to try for a change of pace.

Aromas of ginger and cracker. Hazy straw with a quickly fading white head. Dry, gingery, spicy. Light bodied.

Bottle from craft. Notes of caramel malt, ginger, spice and hop. Body was thin, but a decent representation of style.

maekchu (2556) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Ginger, citrus nose. Orange/amber color, thin head. Ginger, light pale malt, ginger again, and small bitterness in finish. Light bodt\y. Ginger, yes, but also some unidentifiable "ghost" spice notes. All too apparent in such a light beer. Okay, maybe as a summer juice slammer, but really not as refreshing as I suppose itís intended to be.
