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.

This was not a good beer, it tasted like not very sweet ginger ale, all the taste is just a bit of ginger with slight hops on the back. Very bland

Aroma of ginger and a little hops. Thin white head, very light body and color. Refreshing is the overall impression I get.

probstblueribbon (3062) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam NY, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a decent white head. Aroma: Strong, pungent, zingy ginger, comes off like ginger snap cookies. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly lively carbonation. Flav.: Lots ’o ginger, that’s pretty much it; dry with minimal bitterness and a big ginger finish.

Ginger. No thanks.

DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - APR 30, 2014
Pours a deep-golden color with a one-finger white head that falls to a thin cap relatively quickly. Light, clean, grassy hop and faint ginger on the nose. Full mouthfeel with a slightly oily texture. Ginger over arches the malt underneath from start to finish. A bitter grassy character appears near the finish.
