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.

Marvelous. Just what I like in a beer. Seriously. I could drink this stuff ALL DAY!! Low alcohol, with only the faintest whiff of ginger (but it’s there). Murky, opaque ale with lots of yeast and malt. Not a hop to be found. I MUST buy more of this lovely nectar.

Cool beer. Certainly a pale ale in body and color. Nice white head that hangs around. The aroma is just intoxicating, ginger, fresh bread, and some cumin perhaps? Any way you cut it excellent beer and does wonderfully with asian and indian cusine, something very few beers can accomplish.

A very surprising ale. Nice and mellow and a light body with golden coloration and thin white head. I really enjoyed the ginger to this pale ale and it was not sweet like I thought, this is a summer brew all the way.

BBD 9/22/14. Clear amber pour that has just a touch of garnet with an acceptable head. Lacing and retention are typical for the style and fade away after a few minutes. The magnificent nose is of ginger over a biscuit background sweetness. Light medium body that is nice and smooth in texture. Above average carbonation with a strong burst of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is quite nice and focuses on ginger. It delivers the ginger at just the right level and balances it against a toasty slight biscuit sweetness. It finishes with a crisp effervescent burst of ginger and hop flavor over biscuit. An outstanding clean crisp use of ginger.

Bottle. Pours lush and golden with amber highlights. Aroma is cotton candy. Flavor is nice and gingery, with a sour offset to balance the sweetness. Notes of orange, lime, and grapefruit also. Palate soothes the savage tongue. Great beer!

Cloudy golden-amber colour. Fresh gingery-hoppy aroma. Fresh character, lots of ginger, fruity esters and light citrusy hop. The malts are mild and pale, providing just enough structure to balance but not enough to overwhelm the refreshing character. I like it.
