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.

Amber with a slight haze. Ginger, toffee and malt in the aroma. Ginger, toffee, nuts and malt all feature in the taste. Not bad, but nothing too exciting either.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle from Sugaya, 4.5% what a great looking beer, honey gold with a nice head of foam. The aroma is of a biscuity ginger lemon-nice. The taste is mostly ginger but nicely balanced with lemon, not too bitter or sweet. The ginger gives you a bit of fire in the finish. Good stuff, a nice low ABV table beer.

Keyaki, late on. Light golden colour. Aroma is ginger, taste ginger, not so much else. Not so bad but very one dimensional. As I was too at this stage.

Lots of ginger but also that sweetness that reminds me of those bad ginger drinks.

pnesbit (79) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle pour our clear golden yellow with thin off white head. Aroma of big spicy candied ginger with hints of caramel malt. Taste of fresh grated ginger with more spice and less sweet than the nose with only hints of malt. Light body not much of any finish. Over all refreshing and interesting beer but not a stand out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Aroma has malts and loads of ginger. Mouthfeel is quite light. Flavor has malts and ginger. Aftertaste is surprisingly malty. Damn, loads of ginger! This is dominated by it and I’d hope less.

yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. A clear one, well, slightly hazy, golden in color and with a white head leaving some lacings. Mostly ginger on the nose, with some orange peel. Ginger flavor too, with a good bitterness and some orange. Medium to full body, a bit heavy carbonation I think. Quite dry. Long flavor with ginger overpowering orange, leaving very little room to anything else except some bitterness. Ginger can be a nice addition to a pale ale, but I want it subtle, not running the show. 130821

jsmerig (1143) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours a dark orange/yellow with an average size foamy white head. The aroma of ginger is pronounced along with floral notes. Taste is dry from start to finish. Ginger throughout. Not a big malt presence and a little bittering from the hops in the finish to make the end clean crisp and dry. Kind of watered down ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
