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.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Memphis (downtown). I like ginger.... I like beer..... but they don’t exactly go together. I would really prefer that my beer not have a spice to it. There were some bready notes in the aroma. It was pretty blah.

ALIBALI (206) - 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.

I hope you like ginger? And flat beers? Aroma of ginger (hmm?). Taste is sweet malts with ginger that grows more and more in the aftertaste. My bottle was also almost flat, dunno if that’s how it’s supposed to be?
