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.

Orange color with a little lacing. Bottled 01.28.05 and thoroughly beaten up in my hot car for a few weeks. Ginger in the nose dominates. Slightly sour flavor with ginger and light hops. A pretty mellow flavor profile that would definitely go with Asian cuisine. Iím not a huge ginger fan but this is drinkable, and has held up all right considering what I put it through. Watery palate.

I wish I had a better beer for 1,900, but this is it. Bomber from Peace Street Market, Raleigh. Pours deep gold with medium, creamy white head and a lot of tiny carbonation. The aroma is very interesting.....some pale malt, hops, lemon, black pepper, ginger, and soy. This one smells a lot like sweet and sour sauce or General Tsoís chicken or even egg drop soup to an extent. The taste is gingery, with some hopcit and sesame oil essences. Nice complexity, good balance, and one of the most interesting beers I have ever quaffed! I will keep a few of these on hand to drink with Chinese food!

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained by my wonderful wife while she was on a trip in Boulder Colorado. Tasted in dimpled mug - bottle 650ml. Appearance is slightly cloudy, rust / orange colour, thin white head. Very light and weak aroma, some citrus notes. Flavour starts off a bit like lemon cheese cake. Buttery flavour, biscuits and a hint of bitter ginger. After taste has the feeling of light ginger spice.

I think this is a great novelty beer. I donít think it is trying to be a traditional brew of any sorts and should be judged on what itís trying to do. Poured a nice clear gold. A short fizzy head which disappeared quickly. Lots of bubbles along the side of the glass - almost looked like champaigne. Light ginger aroma, with some yeast. Nice ginger taste, otherwise light and crisp. Good for cooking - I put it in a Cioppino broth tonight - added some nice complexity.

Golden color with a relatively thin head that goes away quick. Plenty of ginger in the nose. Refreshing and thirst quenching taste. You can taste that this merely a generic pale ale with added ginger but I like it. Itís light on alcohol and the ginger compliments the beer nicely. This is a great summer beer.

Ginger strong and almost the only thing in the nose and taste. Was decnt cold, but became quite unpalatable as it warmed. Appearance was ok, gold with thin head. Mouthfeel was watery.

Light gold color with no head. Woah! I know the label says "ginger", but I really hadnít smelled a ginger beer before and was not prepared for that. Itís definitely got a big ginger nose and taste. Slightly bitter finish. A bit watery, but not enough to really destroy it. Thereís not much here other than the ginger.

No head. Pale cloudy amber color. Smells overwhelmingly of ginger and a grassy hopp and not much else. Different but not that good. Tastes bland for the scent. The ginger shows up in the taste but not so much as in the scent. Thanks Chuck.

Thanks Chuck for this odd beer. The aroma is ginger and grapefuit hops. The appearance is caramel colored with a thin white head. The flavor is raw grains, light citrus hops, light ginger. Not bad, just not really exciting. Although, I think this beer would go really well with sushi. Iíll have to give that a try.
