2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clouded golden appearance, moderate head formation. Mild ginger spiced aroma. Mild palate, ginger spice makes it slightly clean and minty. Interesting change but not much to get excited about.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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. I’m not a huge ginger fan but this is drinkable, and has held up all right considering what I put it through. Watery palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Tso’s 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.
