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.

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. It’s actually fairly refreshing and I like ginger so it tasted ok. The base beer is thin and also narrow of flavor, but I’d actually drink this again and I’d 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 isn’t 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.

pours a light brown color with little off white head. A light aroma of ginger. Taste is smooth with classic ginger taste.

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

I think this beer would go well with sushi - especially if you like ginger, like I do. It really does taste like ginger, mind you - like the kind in ginger-breadmen. I guess it would also fit well with ginger snaps. Overall good, but a tad watery for my taste. Palate gets old quickly too - not enough diversity. It might actually be good for cleansing one’s palate though when eating.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2006
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.
