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. Iím 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 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!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
