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.

Poured a light amber color with no head. It had a slightly sweet aroma that I can’t place. The lager-ish flavor has a hint of medium sweetness, but not what I would consider ginger by any means. The body was quite sticky in my mouth and lighter than expected.

12 oz bottle. Clear golden-ornage color with bubbly white head. Enticing aroma dominated by citrusy hops with a hint of ginger and graham crackers. A little sweet with vanilla, grassy hop, and ginger flavors. Pleasant spicy cereal grain aftertaste. I hope to get a chance to try this on tap because it is very good from the bottle.

22 oz. bottle. Bottle conditioned. Not much aroma, a little hint of ginger. Pours a clear yellow with a decent white head, left lacing in the glass. Looks like a european lager. Light, smooth flavor with distinct ginger in the aftertaste. Light mouthfeel. Probably a pretty good lawnmower beer. I would try it again in the summertime, but just not that exciting. Occaisionally reminded me of sushi when I would lift my glass - obviously the light, yellow beer and ginger aroma and flavor.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Draught at O’Briens - San Diego: Golden bronze color with very little head or lacing, of which disipates rather quickly. Nose of light pale malt and some ginger ale essence. The flavor is weak and lotiony with some floral hops along with the potent ginger. Finishes light and watery. If you’d added some gari to a golden ale, you’d have something like this. Not really my thing.

Can’t really smell any ginger. Honestly doesn’t tastes that great - a funkiness that I can’t attribute. Thickish, but with a realy odd flavor. Doesn’t get any better as it goes along.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2006
12oz. bottled on 03-16-05. Pours a cloudy light orange-yellow with some floaties in it. Moderate creamy head. Aroma of ginger, pepper, and some slight sweet malts. Taste follows the aroma, with a clean finish. Kinda thin and watery on the palate. Not a bad beer--couldn’t really drink more than one in a sitting, and wouldn’t necessarily seek this one out.

Draft at O’Brien’s. Deep Yellow with a decent head. Aromas were ginger ale but not quite as sweet. Ginger on the tounge too, with a decent hop bite. Not bad. Worth a shot, but not something to have often.

looks like ginger ale when poured, kind of orangish amber, thin head, ginger aroma. very light taste with just the slightest hint of ginger. a hoppy after taste. i’m pretty underwhelmed.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Sampled from bottle. Pours cloudy orange-amber with a thin, creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is pleasant: tart, freshly grated ginger and sweet malt. Flavor also had ginger, but it is not dominant, but rather balanced with some bready malts and some spicy hops. Medium-light body and lightly carbonated. A refreshing, unique beer.
