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.

The ginger really comes through in the aroma, flavor is mild though. Tasted like a very mild, unsweetened ginger ale. Something different for sure, but I couldn’t drink more than one.

Sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2005. Hazy dark yellow in color with a big, frothy soda-like head. Aroma is straight ginger. Flavor is mild ginger with some black pepper spiciness. An interesting beer to try, at least once.

An altogether odd beer. The ginger and cinnamon is good, but the beer lacks any kick whatsoever. Served ice cold it can be a good thing to lubricate a party, but not something I’d want every day.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Light apricot color, below a small head. Vibrant ginger root aroma, which is somewhat medicinal. Flavor is predominantly ginger, without much else. I guess for a ginger beer, this is ok.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Clear orange with no head and absolutely no bubbles. Smells of faint ginger and not much else. Taste is faint ginger and water, but mostly like dish soap (my glass was normal). Where is the malt? There is none at all. Pretty bad overall, but I do like ginger.

jgentgesdo (668) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Pours hazy pale orange with minimal head that quickly diminishes. Not much in the nose except for a small amount of ginger aroma. In the flavor I get some faint malt tones, hops, and ginger. Ok.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Bottle. Hazy orange-copper body with a sloppy white head. Cracker malt, ginger, and a touch of lemon in the aroma, The flavor is comprised of papery pale malt, subdued ginger, and leafy hops. The finish is dry and ginegery, reminds me of some pan-Asian dish. Dissapointing stuff.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Pours an almost clear, copper color that is topped by a pale tan, rocky head. The aroma is of course dominated by fresh cut, spicy ginger; it is really quite fresh and zesty. The taste is light, and quite dry on the palate. The dryness of the beer tends to mute the ginger a bit, at least compared to the levels in the nose. The ginger is still the most evident character though. Lots of spicy, herbal ginger notes almost make it up through my sinuses as I sip on this beer. I really like this beer, it is one dimensional of course, but it is refreshing and quite gingery, and I like ginger.

Draught. Pours gold with orange hints and a small rocky white head. Ginger hop spice aroma with citrus pine notes. Sour ginger and citrus hop flavor. Light bodied and fizzy. Spotty lacing.

Had this one bottled. Dark yellow in color, clear and bubbly, this one had very little nose of canned corn. Tasted a lot like your average beer, added water and ground ginger root. Different but not very good.
