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.

Pours golden w/ shallow spritzy froth. Ginger on the nose. Light to medium nectar. Crisp, clean, ginger, some citrus rind. Finish is long. A refreshing brew with a unique ginger character. Worth a try.

Pours a two finger, white head that quickly fades leaving no lace. Cloudy amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Nose has some hops and maybe a hint of ginger. Starts with hints of ginger but more hops and malt than ginger, boring, clean finish. $2.75 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Interesting. Gotta love ginger, though, because itís not subtle. Pours a darkish golden color, with a thin white head. Aroma is strong ginger over grainy malt. Flavor is much the same with a crisp, dark hoppy finish. Smooth enough on the palate. More refreshing than I expected, but almost has a medicinal quality. Of course, I enjoy cough syrup, so itís not too bad. Decent beer for a kick.

Courtesy of Papsoe <P> This actually turned out to be a nice palate cleanser of a beer. The aroma is strongly and singly dominated by intense ginger. Body is light gold/yellow with a diminishing thumb thick head. Flavor is a sharp tonuge lashing whip of ginger and carbonation. Itís actually fairly refreshing and I like ginger so it tasted ok. The base beer is thin and also narrow of flavor, but Iíd actually drink this again and Iíd like to try it with some Curry.

Extra pale yellow pour with vanishing white head. The aroma is quite pleasant with gobs of ginger and suggestions of clove and chai tea. The beer is a bit thin and there really isnít enough ginger flavor here. I expected more of a hot kick and a bit more substance. As a summertime refresher this is nice enough served ice cold on the patio.

An interesting brew. Tastes pretty much like what the name would suggest. Probably not something I would go out of my way to get again, but it was nice for a change of pace.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear amber with a small, rough, off-white head. Rather neutral aroma with a hint of ginger. Very thin body with accents of pilsener malt and a discreet, spicy edge of ginger and - tea? Quite refreshing. 230306
