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

This is a great bet with a refreshing taste. Low mellow and unlike any other. Please enjoy one

Bottle. This beer is pretty much what it says it is. A nice session beer with very light, pleasant ginger aroma and taste. Really not bad on a hot day.

Nice session type beer but not something I would go back to necessarily. Nice light ginger and malt aroma. Very pretty crystal copper color with very little head. Light and carbonated palate. Flavors of a pale ale with some hops and a ginger finish.

A very nice light refreshing beer. This is a perfect alternative to wheat beers for folks like me who aren't huge fans of the style. The aroma is strong with ginger and there is almost a sweet character to it. This beer lacks complexity and flavor development but what it does, it does well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Passed this over so many times in B-town, a little relieved to see I get it here as well. Bottle. Nose is straight ginger, but it seems to be of good quality and, perhaps more importantly, fresh. Pours rich, ultra-clear golden with an orange tint, soapy white head. Taste lightly sweet but attenuated and developed, basic malt but nicely toasty on the edges, smooth light-medium body that allows a bit of blending between the malt and ginger -- too much carbonation might have spoiled the punch. Somewhat soft, refreshing, and perfectly spiced, something of a serendipitous panacea on this day with a rare, ragged throat.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear rosy copper with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of ginger and white bread with a bit of lime. Light bodied. Light finish. Hmmm.

6 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a sniffer glass. Pours hazy with only a whisper of a head. Golden with mild carbonation. Nose is definitely ginger. Also a little earthy or dirt-y. Mouthfeel is moderate-on-creamy. Fairly dry and crisp overall. Taste is ginger, grass, lemon, and a bit of malts. A little bit of a ginger bite on the end. Fairly unobtrusive overall. A neat beer. Not too much on it?s own, but I think one could have a lot of fun pairing this with food.
