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.

I really wanted this beer to be good. It tastes slightly malty sweet with barely a noticeable hint of ginger. If it didn't say ginger on the label I would not have noticed it. Beer is also almost flat. Perhaps I received an old bottle? The only good thing to say about the beer is that it is rather refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle with a 15 Oct. 2016 BB date on the neck. Look Clear orange-copper body with a small, short-lived head and minimal lacing.. Aroma: A nice mix of bready malts and ginger (of course). Flavor mildly bitter; moderately strong ginger comes across as being of a good strength although it does dominated the malts. Feel: Lighter side of medium with lightly prickly carbonation. Overall: Like pale beers and ginger ale? .. does a ginger malt beverage sound appealing? If so, you’re likely to like this. I did and found it quite refreshing on a warm day.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a brownish amber with almost no head and no lacing. The aroma is ginger. The taste is ginger, bread, and a little salty. It’s thin, carbonated, and a little bland. I wouldn’t get this again.

ALIBALI (346) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
Erfrischend. Geruch ganz klar Ingwer. Etikett der Flasche 8/10. Ansonsten luftig, leicht und ein wenig anders. Aber leider nicht atemberaubend. Leicht wässrig im Nachtrunk. Abgelaufene Flasche für 1,50 Euro aus dem Craft Beer Store HH.
