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.

Aroma is malty with strong ginger notes. Pours light golden colored with very little head. Light malty flavor at first then strong ginger finish and the flavor lingers well after swallowing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 4/9/14. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt and a ton of ginger. Malty flavor with huge ginger before a bready and dry finish.

Nice orange color. Strong aroma of ginger, but the soapy notes are bad. The mouthfeel is thin and watery. The taste is ginger of course, and full of herbs, grass and some hay. This beer is to light, weak and lacks balls of steel(?). Ok, its better than Corona.. BUT, the label is cool...

Draft. My friends tell me I’m wrong but I smelled and tasted nothing. At all. I got a slight bitter after taste.

Pours a beautiful clear orange with lots of bubbles that constantly find their way to the top. Thin head not much lace. Nose is authentic ginger. Crisp with a bite and an vivid scent. Maybe a bit fo hops on the nose to ffer some grass and herbal. Malt is a touch of dark brown sugar on a soft and light bread. Smells like a ginger snap cookie with a touch of vanilla. Taste is lovely. I love it. It’s not an IPA. It does not drink like an IPA. It has a beaucoup ginger flavor on a beautiful light cracker. Touch of brown sugar,vanilla and a nice grass take you to a finish that is not dry but that has all kinds of ginger to tempt, to whet the appetite & to satisfy.

Perky, cheerful and just lovely.

Ginger was never my favorite, it doesn’t work in this beer as well. Not very good.

Draught at Hamnmästaren, Malmö
Hazy deep blond color with large compact head. Strong ginger aroma, also a bit lemony and soapy. Weak body, dry; it has a light bread flavor, some ginger and it’s pungency; relatively low bitterness with some bitter vegetables in the finish.
